The Oregon coast is quickly becoming the epicenter of winter steelhead fly fishing. New innovations in two-handed rods and lines are allowing anglers of all casting abilities to swing flies within striking distance of our super-charged steelhead, which average 10 pounds and regularly exceed 15.

Topics will include:

-Locating aggressive fish

-Steering your fly to produce the fishiest swing

    Larison’s Complete Steelheader book is the best I’ve read. Especially on presentations. I would love to take a class like this, if it ever happens again!
