Tying Demo: “Small Stream Flies for Wild Trout,” March 1, 2014 at The Compleat Angler

I’m pleased to announce my first event for 2014: I will be returning to the Compleat Angler in Darien, CT for another tying demo. This year’s subject will be flies for small streams. Fishing small streams presents a unique set of challenges to the fly angler – and sometimes, fly selection (and size) is the difference maker. “Small Stream Flies for Wild Trout” will cover dries, wets, nymphs, and streamers that will help you build a basic kit for all kinds of waters, from shallow riffles on woodland brooks to deep plunge pools on high-gradient mountain streams. I’ll also discuss tactics and presentation. My demos are highly interactive, whether we’re doing Q&A or just talking fishing. Hope to see you there!

Where: The Compleat Angler, 541 Post Road, Darien, CT, 203-501-1713, compleat-angleronline.com

When: Saturday, March 1, 2014, 10am-2pm

This breathtaking beauty liked the look of a tan caddis skittering across the surface of a remote mountain stream. One of the things we’ll talk about is fly selection — dry or subsurface — and whether to fish up or downstream.

    Hard to get to Darien from Michigan, will you be taping the demo for a possible presentation on line to your followers. I am interested in this as I am and old time fly fisher from the New York City area but now a Michigan transplant. Tight Lines, Howard Geller

    Yes, that is a bit of a haul.

    Howard, I think that’s a terrific idea. Unfortunately, I don’t have a device that would record for that long…and if I did, I can only imagine the horrors it would present to me to edit and download.

    I have been saying this for years, but I am really hoping that 2014 is the year I start doing tying videos. Please feel free to threaten me until I do. 🙂

    Thanks so much for following currentseams. And thanks for the feedback. I am always interested in hearing what my readers have to say.
