April 17: Advanced Nymphing Techniques
A primer on modern nymphing techniques.
April 27 - May 1: Kelsey Bass Ranch
Recent innovations in nymphing techniques – Czech, Polish, Spanish, French – can leave you feeling confused and nostalgic for the days when an indicator, a split shot and a nymph were all you needed. The European “tight line” systems, derived from competitive angling, are surprisingly simple and effective in our local waters. New contact techniques focus on getting the flies to the strike zone and improving strike detection, but do you know when and how to use each method? Our April program discusses these new methods but also offers improved strategies for flotation style indicators. To help us demystify all this, we welcome back Jason Randall.
Camping and bass. Lots of bass.
Join us for a weekend at Kelsey where fly rod caught bass in the 3 to 5 pound class are common. (The current lake record is 16 pounds 12 ounces caught in January of 2014!) Since we have permission to camp lakeside, you can indulge in catch and release fishing from as early as yo want to as late as you want. With twelve anglers in our group, we will pretty much have exclusive access to the 125 acre lake for the weekend.
