FLY DESIGN: From Classroom to River - A two-day course spent on the river and at the tying vise, taking a deeper look at entomology, and how to translate what you are seeing into REALISTIC PATTERNS THAT CATCH FISH!
When: June 9 and 10, 2012
Where: Michigan’s legendary Muskegon River (near Grand Rapids) at the Muskegon River Lodge
We are very excited about it and sure that no one will leave without feeling more prepared to fish any water. If you or someone you know is at a place in fly-fishing/tying where the basics in tying have been mastered but are looking to take it to the next level … this is it.
Nothing has helped me more over the years than getting out and learning from others what I am really looking for out in the river. This is a chance to do just that and HANDS ON. You can read all you want but it never really locks in until you know what you are looking for and do it.
Fly-tyers have a distinct advantage to fly-fishing but only if you break away from the generic pattern guides and learn it for yourself. We will be sampling, identifying, tying, and fishing patterns hot off the vise. All of that accompanied with the knowledge of when, where, and how to fish them. On top of that, staying at the MRL will definitely put you in the right frame of mind. Please forward this on to anyone else you know that might benefit from it.
