Keep an eye out for the classes and clinics we will be offering in 2018.
At the Albemarle Angler the only thing our professional staff love more then fishing themselves is introduce people to the sport and helping anglers improve their skills. The wonderful world of fly fishing has so many different facets. For some, it can seem overwhelming. Our guides/instructors are experts in every aspect. Whether you have never touched a fly rod or are an advanced angler wanting to fine tune your skills. Our instructors are patient, professional and will explain things clearly so you come away from each class with understandable and useful knowledge. Our classes and clinics are a great way to get introduced to the sport or take your skills to another level.
