If you've ever wondered why so many people find fly fishing frustrating...


Master the fundamentals of fly fishing in five short weeks.

Fly Fishing Fundamentals Deep Dive is an online program designed to help you systematically create a blueprint of fundamental fly fishing skills that will bring you a greater sense of confidence and competence on the water.

Why do 10% of the anglers often catch 90% of the fish?

They have a system.

I know it sounds kind of weird, but what if you had this same system?

A system that, once learned, just having it stored in your brain was enough to catch fish everywhere you go?

A system that could remove the guesswork and radically transform what fly fishing means to you? 

Now let's ask a simple question... What's the number one reason people find fly fishing difficult?

The number one reason people find fly fishing difficult is because they lack a rock solid set of fundamental skills

My name is Jordan Oelrich, and I’ve been teaching people professionally in the sport of fly fishing for over ten years now. I love it, I live for it, I can't imagine what life would be like without it, but when I started out it was a dumpster fire.

I had no idea what I was doing, it was totally embarrassing at times, to the point where I even turned down opportunities to go fishing with people that I knew were a lot more skilled than I was. This was until I learned one vital piece of information:

Those that are routinely successful on the water have a pre-built set of fundamental skills and habits they can rely on.

The number one thing that separates people that find fly fishing easy and enjoyable from those that find it difficult and frustrating (I have seen my fair share of both) is developing a set of skills and mental blueprints that are reliable, regardless of the circumstances or conditions. 

People who take time to truly master the key fundamental areas of fly fishing don't have to waste time trying to figure out where fish are going to be, what fly to tie on, or how they're going to cast ten feet further when they need to. 

When you develop your foundational skillset, everything changes

When you confident in your fly fishing abilities, you free up more time to enjoy yourself on the water. Time that would've otherwise been spent hooking yourself, your fishing partner, or retrieving your fly from every surrounding tree branch in sight.

Once you understand not just what you're doing, but why you're doing it, fly fishing becomes less frustrating and exponentially more fun.

Building a solid set of fundamental fly fishing skills is exactly what I will teach you in Fly Fishing Fundamentals Deep Dive

  • You're going to gain a greater understanding of exactly how fly fishing equipment works, how it's designed, and how to make both the equipment you have now and equipment you'll have in the future work for you to its highest potential. 
  • You will learn precisely what makes a casting stroke reliable, why it's easier to cast 40 feet than it is to cast 12 feet, and how to add speed and distance to your casting stroke. 
  • You will learn all the basics you need to learn about bugs, as well as other food sources trout find enjoyable. Most importantly, you'll be able to reach into your fly box and choose a fly without it feeling like guesswork.
  • You'll learn trout behaviour, how to read water, how to create a mental blueprint of a lake or river to be able to remove yourself from unproductive zones (aka "dead water"), and most importantly you'll come out of this program with a newfound sense of confidence and competence.

"So glad to have participated in the Fly Fishing Fundamentals Deep Dive Program.  And it was very much “deep dive” as we covered many fundamentals in-depth and with detailed personal insight Jordan has learned over many years crafting his skill on the water.  The lessons were well organized, easily understood, extremely helpful, and fun.  They were everything needed to get out on the water and catch fish.  I’ll miss the Thursday night presentations, but am grateful to have each lesson recorded to refer to whenever I like.  Add to this the 21 day Podcast series, the free e-book, the knot-tying tutorial and other insightful emails - and even more, Jordan's accessibility and willingness to help one-on-one with our individual questions, makes this easily the best fly fishing learning experience I’ve ever had.  Many, many thanks!" - Ron C.

Week 3: Fly Selection

Imagine watching an insect land on your sleeve, opening your fly box and being able to make an educated decision rather than a blind guess? This lesson will cover some basic entomology, and some very detailed teachings on how to understand what's going onto the end of your line and why
