Fly Fishing 201

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 "drag-free" drifts.

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 patterns.

Streamer Fishing

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.
