Workshops and cheap dates

      Winter Spey fishing the OP January 14th 2012

So you have a decent grip on how to use your spey rod, but you wouldn’t mind if you started landing more giant chrome steelhead.  This workshop is designed to make your winter steelhead fishing on the OP, or anywhere else for that matter more productive.

First with some new maps of the best walk in spey water on the Olympic peninsula. Then with a lot of discussion about tactics, lines, tips and rigging. Then more than you might think about fly selection and design. 

It’s my belief that versatility with tactics and water selection is the key to consistent success with the Spey Rod.  Admit it, no matter how much you love to cast, sometimes you really need a pull.

This workshop is open to four guests, at a rate of $150.00 per person.  It includes a light breakfast at our house, a big lunch on the river, most of the day spent fishing, demonstrating and cruising spots, and then a dinner back at the house.

Never get tired looking at this fish

Forks winter steelhead workshop January 7th 2012

This workshop is designed to get walk in fly anglers comfortable with a variety of spots and techniques that will put you in fish around the west end of the Olympic peninsula.

Here is the way it works.  We meet at the crack of 8:00 am at my house in Forks and sit down to breakfast and coffee and look over maps of good walk in water on some creeks and big rivers. I will provide you with a new map kit that lists 8 or 10 strong pieces of walk in water and we can discuss in detail how to use the maps.

Then we grab a bunch of gear and head out to fish a spot or two, discuss and demonstrate some different techniques and generally try to get everyone on the right track.  We will talk about lines, rods flies and presentations.  I will have a variety of rods rigged so that you can get a feel of some different systems.

 I will also have half a dozen or so spey and switch rods for you to try out, as well as 20 or more different spey lines you can try on your own rod.

Around 1:00 we will break for an oversized lunch, and then we will head to some more spots and continue. 

At 4:30 we break and then at 5:30 we will meet at my house for dinner and a re-cap of everything and if time allows run through a few fly patterns.

The work shop cost is 140.00 per person

Class size is limited to four.

Some additional workshop notes.

First, this is not a guided trip, if we catch a steelhead it will be an accident.  The goal here is to get you to a place where you can drive to Forks at any point of the winter and regardless of conditions get onto water where you stand a great chance of hooking fish.

I schedule the workshops on Saturday so you can come into town Saturday morning, get a bunch of maps and instruction, and then fish on you own on Sunday.

Look forward to seeing you.
