High Sierra Fly Fishing Clinics

Goal of Clinic:

Our objective is to provide you with the basic fly fishing skills to become a competent fly angler. The clinic is designed to prepare both beginning and intermediate anglers for just about any fly fishing situation.

Some basic skills will include: Tackle basics, choosing the right gear, casting fundamentals, knots, strategies and tactics for dry flies, nymphs, streamers, entomology and reading water for stillwater, streams and rivers. We will also cover fish conservation and ethics.

We enjoy fly fishing and teaching others to enjoy this wonderful sport. We want you to have the ultimate angling experience. You can expect the best quality instruction and the opportunity to fish some of the Central Sierras finest trout waters. Please join us for some great fun.
