Why Students Love Crux Academy

I would definitely recommend Crux Academy! This is an amazing tool to help you improve your skills, I personally learned a lot from the videos and lessons. I was able to land my first rainbow trout from what Maddie showed me in her Fly Fishing course!  I also love the Crux Academy app!  It is super user friendly and I love how I can refer back to any lesson easily.

The quality of Crux Academy is mind blowing! I figured these would be good online courses and there would be big-name instructors; but I’m impressed by how well this is laid out and done! The videos are fantastic and the course is so comprehensive - it goes MUCH deeper than a simple YouTube video or a write up on the REI blog or Outside mag.

It’s easy to dream and come up with a million things that you want to do, but it’s so easy to get lost in the process of learning something new before you even start. I’ve failed so many times in the first step simple because I don’t know where to start and the feeling of being overwhelmed beats me. Crux  Academy breaks down the steps, which helps you feel that your goals are ACTUALLY attainable!.”
