Join Rick Hafele & John Smeraglio, instructors in the DVD’s “Fly Fishing Large Western Rivers”, “Nymph Fishing Basics”, and “Advanced Nymph Fishing”, for a special workshop for anglers of all skill levels on the Deschutes River.

Through a combination of slide shows, and stream side instruction, you will learn how to select effective fly patterns, understand trout and insect behavior, and how to effectively fish nymphs, wets, and dry flies.

Rick will share a detailed slide presentation on the life cycles of aquatic insects, how to recognize them, and then to match them with artificial fly patterns.

After lunch, you will spend the afternoon on the Deschutes River learning first hand how to select the correct flies, from the insects you’ve collected, and how to properly present them.

Combined, Rick and John have over 50 years experience in fly fishing and instruction. This is an unique opportunity to pick their brains, and answer some of the mysteries of fishing for stubborn trout.
