Winter Clinics January 19th and 20th
This is your chance to hang out and get schooled up by yours truly on some winter fishing tactics. You will see the set-up I am using right now; rods, lines, leaders, and how I approach the river in the winter. The main points we will cover are type of water to fish, flies, and rig setup. Classes will be a bit smaller than my spring fever clinics. It will be limited to four people. The cost is $150 a head. We will start at 11:00 and go to 3:00 pm (truly whichever four hour time period happens to be the warmest time of the day). We will mostly cover nymphing techniques however streamering and dry dropper rigs will be talked about as well. Remember, you do not have to be a pro, but at least have some solid fundamentals down. Of course have your own gear. A 5-6wt single hand fly rod or lighter weight switch with a floating nymphing specific line is recommended. I have rods if need be. I can provide flies, but you should have tackle with you, shot, tippet, etc. Right now, I will plan to have it on the Cali side, but if there is a lot of snow along the banks we will switch it to the Nevada side. You will be fishing folks, not just standing around listening to me ramble. I’ll need half of the cost up front as a deposit with credit card to secure your spot. One of the reasons I’ve never done a winter clinic is the possibility of bad weather. This could happen and if so I will reschedule for a different weekend, or if you cannot make it the second time around you can apply your deposit towards a guide trip, a win, win situation. If you like sticking big fish, learning to fish the Truckee River in winter will open up a lot of doors for you.
