There are few places better than Red's Fly Shop in the Yakima Canyon to get introduced and coached on the basic fundamental of Euro style nymph fishing. Our location and approach to practical instruction makes for an efficient and fun filled outing on the water. Many anglers join this course several times to experience continued coaching with a variety of instructors and conditions.

Euro Nymphing Clinic and Wade Fishing Adventure

Our fisheries will vary be season as we try to take advantage of the most optimal wading conditions and fishing. Most often we take our anglers out in the Yakima Canyon, but if good opportunties exist on other local streams you can bet we will be there.

Euro style is also commonly called Czech nymphing. Its a very productive strategy but it absolutely requires some mentoring to get proficient at in a reasonable amount of time. It's universally used at nearly every competitive fly fishing event.  It's VERY effective.

The main goal here is to help you experience more productive fishing independently of a guide and give you the tools and information necessary to succeed.  Plan to take this course more than once to become highly profiecient.
