A lightly weighted fly and a short poly leader were all it took to motivate this buck to move more than 20 ft for Rons fly

A lightly weighted fly and a short poly leader were all it took to motivate this buck to move more than 20 ft for Rons fly, swinging for winter steelhead with one handed rods has pretty much disappeared around here.  But sometimes its the best way to go.

Spring summer workshop schedule 2016.

Our workshops are designed to accommodate three guests per day.

If you bring two buddies you have it locked up, other wise we will put the group together.

Cost is $145.00 per guest, lunch and tons of gear provided.

We usually work in a float, but sometimes walk and wade.

One handed spey casting for trout and steelhead.

May 7th.

I wonder how many folks will be interested in this?  This has always been a fascination of mine and I am looking forward to spending some full days on the topic.

Want to cast better? Much better?  The most useful casts I know are one handed spey and roll casts.  Every trout fishermen will benefit from these casts, and they are a lot easier to learn than you might think.

These casts will start off feeling like weird tricks to get your way out of casting from tight spots or weird angles.  But as you begin to be more comfortable with them you find they will replace much of your overhead casting.

If you feel like your one handed over head casting is pretty much under control, and want to move your casting skills a long way down the line, this might be for you.

Spey Catching.

June 4th

I have clients that commonly hook multiple steelhead a day with the spey rod.  A lot of what they are doing different is spending tons of time on the water.  But equally important is a deep understanding of multiple types of presentations.

This workshop will focus on making your spey fishing time more productive.  And help you understand why steelhead and salmon take a swung fly.

We will do a float and fish several different pieces of water with different lines and tips, and maybe some dry flies.

I will bring a ton of rods and lines and we might even screw up and catch a steelhead.

As the dates fill we will add some more, and we have a few other workshops I would like to add.
