"WET FLIES 101" with Steve Culton, Sunday 7/9/17, 9am-2pm

WET FLIES 101 – The ancient and traditional art of subsurface fly fishing

Wet flies & soft hackles have been taking trout for centuries - and the fish aren’t getting any smarter. More and more anglers are discovering that a wet fly is often the best way to match a hatch - or find active fish.

Join Farmington River guide, speaker, and outdoor writer Steve Culton Sunday, July 9, as we explore the wonders of wet fly and soft hackle fishing on the Farmington River. Whether searching, imitating drowned terrestrials, or fishing under the hatch, wets can be a highly productive summer tactic. Wet Flies 101 includes streamside and on-the-water instruction, and will cover basics like rigging, leader construction, fly selection, where to fish wet flies, and how to fish them.

Flies will be included. Bring your own gear, food, and drink. Class runs 9am-2pm, leaving plenty of time for you to enjoy the evening rise with your new skill. Tuition is $100, paid in advance & non-refundable, and space is limited to 4 people. Clinic happens rain or shine, so please bring a raincoat.
