It's that time of year again! Carp flyfishing and winter flyfishing are by far my favorite things to do lately because the fishing is both challenging and at times epic. The beauty of both carp'n and chasing trout in the winter is that most people either haven't caught on or don't have any desire to do those things which means you're not fighting crowds. To me missing out on the opportunity to stand in the South Platte in 11mile canyon and absolutely slay fish is crazier than braving single digit temps. There are a ton of ways to withstand the elements and enjoy some of the best fishing to be had all year.
Myself and a couple of the other guides with Anglers Covey will be teaching a winter flyfishing class on December 10th. Learn what it takes to fish in negative wind chills in complete comfort, how to stay safe when wading, winter entomology with Robert Younghanz (it might surprise some to find out that there are more than just midges), and tried and true techniques and patterns for bruising fishy lips in the dead of winter without the crowds. The classroom lecture will be held at the shop on December 10th from 7:00-8:00 am. The streamside class will be held immediately after from 9 a.m.-noon. Must provide your own gear including warm clothes. Dress in layers! Cost of the class is $90 For questions concerning the class send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
