Our Weekend Fly Fishing clinics are designed for all levels of experience. This includes anyone who has never thrown a fly-line before, or those who have just started waving the long wand and need a little more guidance, right through to the experienced fly fishing lover.

These clinics teach the introductory aspects of overhead fly-casting and roll-casting, enough to give the beginner a realistic shot of landing their first trout on fly. Casting practice takes place on grassed areas and on a stocked dam, before moving on to fishing several local streams.

Yaraandoo is the perfect place to enjoy outdoor activities, workshops, make new friends, go trout fishing, bushwalking or just hang around the camp fire.
