Date: Saturday, May 19th
Workshop Instructor: Jon Baiocchi
Update on the Clinic
In the morning we will be learning proper rigging for both shallow and high/fast water streamer fishing, fly selection, and going over the handout that I will provide. Then down to the river to learn the 5 key presentations that are effective. We break for lunch and after I teach the students all about Short Line Nymphing (SLN); rigging, fly selection, then once again down to the river to learn how to effectively SLN. During both the streamer and SLN on the water exercises, I will work with each student individually and correct their mistakes. All terminal tackle is provided, lunch, snacks, and drinks. Students are required to use their own flies.

Comments / Updates
Streamer tactics are an important tool for anglers during spring and fall, low light conditions, and high dirty water. Covering vast amounts of water is often needed in finding a large trout willing to chase, and play the game.
