What is Elite Angler Academy?

Elite Angler Academy is an educational program designed to make you a better angler by focusing in on cramming as much info into a day instead of spending time trying to solely catch fish. Everyone likes to catch fish, but wouldn’t you like to walk away from a trip feeling like you can apply what you learned on any body of water to find and pattern fish? Don't limit yourself to a single body of water the focus of Elite Angler Academy isn’t on learning THAT lake or river, it is about learning how to fish any lake or river.

 

Become a Better Angler

The Elite Angler Academy can be tailored to fit your experience level whether you are a novice or a pro. EAA is for the angler that wants to gain skills or improve upon skills that they already have.

What can you expect in a day with the Elite Angler Academy?
You will start the day in a classroom environment where the focus is on learning. Clark Reehm is a professional level angler currently fishing the FLW Pro Tour and he shares with you the skills and technique he uses to be successful on any body of water. Clark has a degree in graphic design and uses many visual aids and diagrams as a teaching aid. Break for lunch and then back to learning or a quick trip to the lake to apply what was learned.
