A Note From Joan
The Wulff School of Fly Fishing has always been a personal school. Starting in 1979, it was Lee’s and my dream to share, with willing enthusiasts, the skills and lore of our wonderful sport. Lee will be with you through his words, films, and philosophy. I will be with you through my analysis of the casting stroke and instructional techniques. Both of us will be with you through our experienced and very capable staff of instructors, all of whom have been thoroughly trained in the Wulff School casting method. My son, Doug Cummings, acts as Director of the School.
Our instructors love what they do and will help you to attain your personal goals. The instructor-to-student ratio is 1-to-4. The Wulff School is also personal in the sense that we provide students with rod choices from a dozen different manufacturers. Of course you are free to bring and use your own tackle. So whether you are a parent and child, husband and wife, with friends or alone, you are most welcome at the Wulff School of Fly Fishing on the Beaverkill. Join us this season!
Lee Wulff was responsible for popularizing fly fishing to the television audience in the early days of American Sportsman. He was also a mechanical engineer, a tireless inventor (the fishing vest), author, illustrator, teacher, explorer and advocate of catch-and-release fishing. His spirit lives on through the strong preservation ethic that infuses the sport of fly fishing today; an ethic that he championed throughout his lifetime.
Joan Wulff started in casting competitions when just a schoolgirl, then progressed to champion, author, instructor and spokesman, and today remains the leading female fly fisherman in the world. Her teaching methodology is simple, straightforward and, extremely effective. Her many books and DVDs continue to help millions of fishers around the globe.

This icon of fly fishing is a type of lure called a “dry fly.” Fly anglers use dry flies to imitate insects hatching on the top of rivers. The trout cannot resist.Read More
