Steve Culton 2019 Appearance Schedule

A busy first few weeks, kicking off with the Fly Fishing Show in Marlborough, MA, and Edison, NJ. If you’re the person in charge of finding a speaker for your group, now’s the time to book for 2019.

I’ll be presenting all three days at the Fly Fishing Show in Marlborough, MA, January 18, 19 & 20, 2019. Three brand new programs, each making their debut.

Wet Flies 2.0. This seminar takes a deeper dive into the ancient and mystical art of wet fly fishing. This will be almost all new material, and a natural extension of the very popular “Wet Flies 101.” Friday, January 18, 2:30pm in the Catch Room.

On Saturday, January 19, 10am in Room A of the Destination Theater, I’ll be presenting Targeting Big Stripers From The Shore. Catching bigger bass on the fly while wading is always challenging, even more so in these tough striper times. Come find out some of my secrets.

Speaking of secrets, we wrap things up Sunday, January 20 10am in Room B of the Destination Theater with Lost Secrets of Legendary Anglers. How do iconic fly anglers consistently manage to catch all those fish? Shhh…it’s a secret.

Moving on to Edison, NJ: one day only, Friday, January 25, Wet Flies 2.0 Seminar, 3:15pm in the Catch Room.

The best little fly fishing show is the CFFA Expo, Saturday, February 2 at Maneely’s in South Windsor. I will once again be on tier’s row; I have a coaching commitment in the afternoon, so I’ll only be there from 9am-12:30pm.

Sal at Legends on the Farmington is planning a cool weekend fly fishing/tying event at his lodge, I believe in February. More details on that and my level of participation as they come in.

As always, please don’t hesitate to seek me out and say hello. I always like to meet fellow currentseamsers — or a large truttasuarus.

    Good afternoon Steve. What flies are good for February in the Farmington river

      OK, so nymphing. If I were fishing a two fly team, I’d probably go with a beadhead something (Frenchie, PT, Caddis, Hare and Copper) and the bottom, probably sz 14, and then a smaller (18-20) soft hackle (PT, March Brown) or midge (soft hackle Zebra, Meisner’s Blue Glass) on top. I don’t think the specifics of the pattern are as important as giving the fish a choice in size and color, and one of those being pretty small (lots of small bugs in the river this time of year).

      Hope that helps.
