Nymph Clinic With Doug O- May 10th and 24th
If you missed out last year the good news is we are back with a new series of clinics. Doug Ouellette and I will be hosting two clinics on May 10th and May 24th. We’ll be adding a few more this summer and into the falI as well. If you want to learn some short line nymphing techniques, that is nymping without indicators, this is the class. Chezch nymphing is what folks like to call it. I call it Nor Cal Nymphing because we’ve been doing it here in Northern California for a long ass time. It is a very productive way to fish, especially on the Truckee as it enables you to keep your line tight, connecting you with your leader and flies. We’ll set up straight level leaders, no tapers, using flouro, sighters, tippet rings, etc. We will go through a few different tight line rigs and most importantly you will learn how to set up your own rigs; how to tie the correct knots, and how to use the proper connections. We’ll also show you the flies we like to use and why. Remember this is a class, not a guide trip, so sticking fish is not our objective, but we will fish and you may hook some. The cost for the clinic is $200 bucks. We ask that you pay in advance to reserve your spot. You can pay by credit card via a phone call, email, or paypal. Any 9 foot 5wt will do, but if you want to step it up in the high stick game, bring a 10 footer in a 4-5wt. We will have some high stick’n rods to use as well, please let us know if you will need equipment. This will be on the California side (please remember to bring your license), and we will meet at 9:00 off the Hirschdale exit down at the stop sign at the end of the off-ramp. We will all drive to our spot from there. The class will be 4-5 hours. These are bad ass clinics and you will learn a ton of information.
