Students learn to set up and fish dry flies, nymphs, and streamers. Our
instructors demonstrate correct rigging and set-up. The work in class
focuses on presenting the fly correctly to the places where fish eat.
Fly casting will be brought to the next level where students learn how and
when to false cast, shoot line, and cast farther than they did in 101.
The art of the proper drift requires a technique known as mending. Mending
is demonstrated and each student practices permitting them to reproduce
In 201 students spend time with the instructor, one-on-one, to review
progress. There is a comprehensive Q & A session to prepare students for the
final core class.
Dry Fly Fishing
Students learn to rig for dry fly fishing. Practice presenting flies
to river features holding the most fish is emphasized. Instructors
demonstrate the effects of different current features to ensure
students understand approaching fish.
Fishing with Nymphs
Trout feed below the surface each day. When fish are not active at
the surface, fishing moves below the surface to simulate insect
movement in the water. Participants review nymphing skills
including rigging, casting to the feeding lanes and seasonal fly
When trout grow larger, they cannot get sufficient nutrition from an
insect diet. Large trout eat smaller fish to sustain their diet.
Streamers represent smaller fish in the water and are used to
attract larger fish. We will identify good holding water and proper
rigging for targeting fish on streamers.
