Clinics

Euro Nymphing Master Class> – this clinic is for those who have foundational knowledge and basic nymphing experience. This class will take it to the next level. While there are many Euro Nymphing clinics being offered much of the information is dated or not as effective as the latest innovation in this deadly technique. I fish with the top anglers in the world and currently compete at the World level. I’ll pass along tips, tricks and techniques you simply won’t find in other workshops, starting at the flies, going through knots, leaders, rods, reels and watercraft – this is truly a master class. As this is a popular clinic that sells out quickly, I will be offering multiple dates through the year email me to reserve now. Only 4 anglers per session to ensure we can spend enough time one on one to get you ‘dialed in’!

 
I guarantee you will catch more fish in 2020 if you attend this session.
