Success on large rivers requires specific
techniques in order to quickly and thoroughly cover the water and locate trout during non-hatch periods.
We will teach you the specialized techniques of slack line nymphing, such as “stack mending” and “shaking
out” line, that allow you to achieve long dead-drifts. You will learn casting techniques that help
keep a big indicator, split-shot, and two-fly rig from becoming a giant bird’s nest. Also covered:
selecting rod length; fly lines and rigging; and reading water in order to achieve better drifts.
