During this 2 ½-hour(or slightly longer) clinic, Skip Morris (author of 18 fly-fishing books including Morris & Chan on Fly Fishing Trout Lakes) will teach you about the creatures trout feed on in lakes, how to tie a sound selection of trout-lake flies, fly by fly, and how to fish each fly.

Skip will show a few PowerPoint slides as he explains just how a damselfly, for example, goes through a nymph stage to metamorphose to a winged adult. He’ll then describe how the trout respond to these stages and about the strategies and techniques that help you catch more trout during damselfly hatches.

Then he’ll tie a fly that imitates a damselfly nymph (the critical stage for fishing this hatch), answer questions, and start up another series of slides about another trout-food creature.
You’ll receive a handout with all the fly patterns and a fly Skip himself has tied. This will be an informative and fun clinic. Attendance is limited, so sign up now.
