The purpose of the class is to provide the beginner or expert fly angler a framework for catching more fish. We begin with the classic two fly rig; “Dry Dropper” and explain the importance of “Drop”. From there we apply that to suspended nymphing and straight-line (Euro) nymphing. From there we move to the park to teach casting, etiquette and simulate fishing.
