Small Stream Trout Workshop

Small Stream Trout Workshop

The FFT Small Stream Trout Workshop is conducted on the North Fork Yuba River. The school will focus on the skills you need to explore our Northern Sierra small streams. We will teach our students how to fish pocket water and small stream runs and pools using upstream dry and nymph presentaions as well as tight line European nymphing. freestone stream and stillwater instruction.

This Trout Workshop is designed for anglers who are novice to intermediate anglers. The student will learn proper casting techniques, reels, fly lines, knots, leaders, flies, and wading. Rigging rods for small streams will be covered. The one day school allows students to spend quality one on one time with the instructor and plenty of time to practice the students new found skills.
