Dedicated to teaching the art of fly fishing.


At Northwest Fly Fishing Academy (NWFFA) we are dedicated to helping you become the best fly angler you can be.  Fly fishing is an art where you can learn a new passion, unplug from technology and celebrate the natural world all at the same time.

We are an academy without walls: our classrooms are the waterways of the Pacific Northwest and our teaching associates are the fish that swim the region’s lakes and streams.  We believe deeply that getting out into nature is an important end in itself, but if we can do that and catch a few fish while we're at it?  Even better.  Our mission is to give you the knowledge, tools, tips and techniques you’ll need to successfully venture into your home waters with confidence.


NWFFA Partners


We work closely with several carefully selected Leavenworth-area lodging partners to ensure that your fly fishing adventure is fun and hassle-free.  For your convenience, several of our lodging partners  combine overnight stays with NWFFA fly fishing lessons.  As you browse their websites, be sure to check their “Packages” menu or inquire directly about NWFFA fly fishing reservations.
