Come join us and experience fly fishing on world renowned waters containing 5 species of trout: rainbow, brown, cutthroat, hybrid cutbow, and brook. These waters offer anglers a chance at a "Grand Slam" (catching 4-5 species of trout in one day).

Program cost of $1,975 includes: 4 days of fly fishing (float trips with one guide and 2 anglers/boat), use of fly fishing equipment (rod, reel, etc.), terminal tackle (leader, tippet, flies), guide gratuity, 5 nights lodging, some meals, and Missoula airport transportation. Program fee also includes 3-credit hour tuition ($1,062 estimated value) for credit-seeking students (REC 482).

Discounted fly fishing equipment packages will also be available for registered participants interested in purchasing some great new fly fishing gear.

In short, the program will cover nearly everything, except your transportation to/from Missoula which is not included.
