Introducing: Friday Night Flies

Fridays, this fall and winter we will be hosting a fly-tying evening.  Every Friday will be a little different with changing themes. Eric will be leading the evenings sessions, but we’ll be inviting guest tyers as well.  We will have a limited number of vices and tools for people to use, but you’re welcome to bring you own.  Please feel free to bring in your own materials otherwise, you will be able to purchase needed items. Every Friday 5-8PM November through February.  Of course, we’ll have some liquid refreshment on hand to increase your creativity.

This Friday Colby Olson aka “Caddis Cowboy” will be taking us old school tying Winters Hopes on Irons.  He might even throw in some caddis pupa steelhead flies…  Should prove to be a fun evening, hope you can make it.

New dates for our super popular Steelhead School

Learn all the basics of Steelheading right in our back yard. In this 6 hour float down the Sandy or Clackamas (depending on water conditions), you will learn how to read steelhead water, how to fish that water effectively, how to choose the right fly for the situation, what sink tips are important and when, and how to cast a two-handed (spey) rod. Space is limited to two people per class so you get the most out of your day and plenty of one on one instruction.
Some equipment is available.

Cost: $250.00 / $125.00 deposit required at time of enrollment.

Our 2019 trout school Schedule is out now.

Last year, we saw unprecedented enrollment in our beginning trout schools.  We were jumping through hoops trying to add dates to keep up with the demand.  In 2018 we scheduled more schools than ever before and still had to add an additional dozen dates to keep up with demand.  I guess what we’re saying is “Don’t wait to long to sign up, or the date will be filled.”  Rest assured that we will continue to add dates as necessary, and have added another instructor for the busy summer months.  This is a great little video that Zach made of our class, take a couple of minutes to watch it then click on our “Classes Clinics” page to see the upcoming dates.

Check out this great video that Zachary made of our trout schools.
