I had the opportunity to attend this school, and I came away with so much more confidence in the education I received. Mac Brown and his staff are very knowledgeable and extremely talented. This is the real deal. This is the Mecca for the southeast. If not the world. If you are serious or want to get serious, this is your school to attend. Best education I've ever received.

I was fortunate to attend Mac Brown’s fly fishing guide school. During the course, I learned everything I need to be a successful guide. Mac Brown and his staff have an exceptional knowledge of the sport. Instruction includes fly casting, fly tying, and reading water. I have gained an incredible amount of knowledge in fly fishing. I now have the tools to be a successful guide and to be confident when I go out on the water.
