Start your fly fishing journey on the right track with this comprehensive online course!

Hi, my name is Jordan Oelrich and welcome to the 90 Minute Fly Fisherman!

When I first started fly fishing, it was nothing short of a complete disaster

I wasted countless hours and an embarrassing amount of money to find myself frustrated and clueless as to what I could possibly be doing wrong. 

This all changed when I started getting the right information from people who knew what they were talking about.

While all my friends were off to business school or getting law degrees, I was working in a fly shop for minimum wage and loving every minute of it. 

I knew that the more hours I spent honing my craft, the greater chance that eventually I could share my knowledge with other people. 

Over ten years of professional fly fishing experience, and thousands of hours later, I am pleased to offer this flagship course designed to teach you the proper fundamentals to become a confident, competent angler in the time it takes to watch a few episodes on Netflix.

If someone would have offered this course in my early years, I would have happily severed a limb in exchange for it right then and there!
