10-DAY FLY FISHING GUIDE TRAINING PROGRAM


For 16 years, Guy Jeans has held the title of fly fishing outfitter, business owner of Kern River Fly Shop/Guide Service, Fly Fishers International Certified Casting Instructor and oversees the Guy Jeans School of Fly Fishing. Being exposed to many facets of the fly-fishing world has provided Mr. Jeans with the opportunity to experience periods of failure, as well as success, while discovering what it takes to continue the pursuit of a successful fly fishing guide/outfitter.

 

After years of firsthand experience and research, Mr. Jeans is pleased to introduce the new 10-DAY FLY FISHING GUIDE TRAINING PROGRAM. This 10-day program has been created and designed for those who desire the role of a professional guide in the recreational business of fly fishing or simply have an interest in upgrading your skill set.Aside from being taught by your Presiding Instructor, Guy Jeans, you will receive the expert knowledge of guest instructors in various arenas of fly fishing and guiding.   

 

Being a great angler and loving the outdoors is a given when becoming a fly-fishing guide. The question is: Do you have the desire to pass along your knowledge of fly-fishing, the patience to teach the unteachable to the willing, and the ear to compassionately listen? If so, we look forward to providing you with the opportunity to become what many consider an exceptional career.
