** In order to ensure a 4 to 1 student/teacher ratio,
Bert will be assisted by a highly qualified and experienced teaching staff
including Bob Sills, who has been fly fishing since 1973. He has
pursued the sport from Montana to Martha’s Vineyard, catching and releasing
both fresh and saltwater species of game fish. For the past twenty years
Bob has enjoyed sharing his knowledge and experiences of fly fishing with
others. Bob has a great sense of humor and makes students and guided
clients feel at ease very quickly.
