By popular demand, I'm teaming up with my buddy Doug Ouellette of Cal Vada Fly Fishing to offer a Summertime Nymphing Clinic. Doug is widely regarded as the best still water angler in the country, but the thing is, he's no slouch on the river. Doug has fished the Truckee River for more than 40 years and has developed some great techniques and flies to fool these trout, what I deem, the hardest fish in the West to catch. Day in and day out nymphing is what gets 'er done on the Truckee River. If you don't have much nymphing experience, or are not sure if you're doing it right, this is a great clinic for you to up your ante on the river we call the big leagues. Even if you're a pro you will get something out of this. We will show you how to set up both indicator rigs and non-indicator rigs. We'll even go over how to make your own leaders, such as a straight tippet connection. We will show you what flies we like to use and most importantly how to fish those flies. We will read pocket water and show how to use both left and right hands while nymphing. We like to use a 10 foot 5 weight, but any 5 or 6 wt outfit will do. If you need equipment it can be provided. The class will be limited to ten people and the cost is $200. It will take place on the California side, and it will be between 4-5 hours. Please email me, or call if you'd like to attend. I will need a deposit of half the price up front and the rest due the day of. This is going to be really awesome and a great way to bring you out of the farm leagues to the big show.
