The Blue Quill Angler and Sage Manufacturing have partnered together to offer the first ever Sage Fly Fishing School – Rocky Mountain Region which will offer anglers a wide range of educational opportunities to increase their knowledge and skill level. The Sage Fly Fishing School will offer new and seasoned anglers the opportunity to learn from experts in the field.

”We have selected the Blue Quill Angler as the first site for our flagship fly fishing school because of the talent and experience that they offer,” said Chris Anderson, Sales Manager at Sage. ”We also share a sincere and committed passion to fly fishing. As part of the passion, we absolutely want to get more people involved in the sport and believe that offering a World Class fishing school is one of the best ways to do that.”

At the Sage Fly Fishing School, anglers will have three classes to choose from based on their interest, skill level and scheduling needs. Two courses will focus on the basics of fly fishing, including entomology, fly selection, knot tying, fly casting, rod rigging, wading saftey and reading the water. One course will provide specific concentration on improving casting skills. All courses will feature equipment from Sage and teachers from the Blue Quill Anglers extensive stable of qualified guides and certified casting instructors.
