Many classes will be conducted on the water. Several classes in two-hand fly rod casting and fishing will also include wading and working fishing areas with limited room. It would be very helpful if each student had already attended a basic Spey Casting School.
You will watch an expert guide as he fishes and discloses the secrets and proven methods that put fish on the beach. I want to give you maximum advantage by having as many fish hooked during this school as possible. Nothing teaches you more about fishing than being where fish are being hooked and landed. We will provide a lot of hands-on help so that you can be productive too.
Save yourself five years of experimenting on your own. We will concentrate on two-hand fly rod casting and fishing, as well as learning how to locate steelhead water and how to approach it. Emphasis will be on floating line fishing, but we will also cover sinking tip fishing during midday periods.
There will be a small, quiet generator in camp and electric lights in the screened-in dining tent. Some "classroom" type classes will include PowerPoint projections and/or video.
