21 days of live online training to make you a stillwater fly fishing expert

Have you ever sat on the lake next to someone watching them catch fish after fish, while sitting there frustrated at why nothing was happening for you?

Maybe it was their lucky day, but chances are much better that they simply had the knowledge they needed for the given situation

Stillwater fly fishing can be an intricate, technical game sometimes!

Phil and I both remember what it was like at the start, trying to figure it out while experiencing one frustration after the next

This is why we decided to design the Stillwater Academy

How this program works is that beginning May 1st, each morning you will receive a link to enter a live video lesson consisting of 30-60 minutes of learning content via Zoom.

These calls are recorded and stored within a private group (as well as on your IFFC Learning account) in which you can watch them again as many times as you please.
