Picture of student earning their Fly Fishing Guide Certificate of Completion from CMC.This program is designed to provide the training and education that will lead to success as a fly fishing guide. In the major river basins of Colorado, as well as across the country, fly fishing has become a major recreational activity. This program includes courses that will improve your technical knowledge of the science of fly fishing in both moving and still waters, while stressing the interaction with clients and the natural environment and being exposed to the aspects of running a small business.

Students completing this program will receive a Fly Fishing Guide Certificate of Completion  from Colorado Mountain College. This is not the same as a Certificate of Occupational Proficiency , but CMC faculty and staff have worked with an industry-related board in the development of this program to ensure that it meets the needs of the industry.

Following is a suggested sequence of courses. See your advisor to develop your own schedule.

The Fly Fishing Guide Certificate is offered at Colorado Mountain College in Leadville.
