2013 Stillwater Clinics At Lake Davis
Lake Davis is well known for its prolific Damsel hatch. Anglers come from all over the West to fish Davis during the Damsel hatch each year. We will be spending two weekends sharing some of our secrets on how to fish Davis Lake and also teaching anglers techniques to use on stillwaters anywhere. We will cover everything from stalking trout and sight fishing the shoreline, to deep water nymphing in the middle of the day. Lake Davis is the perfect venue to sharpen your stillwater skills and practice some of our advanced techniques.
Rob Anderson and myself have been fishing and teaching anglers advanced stillwater techniques for over 15 years. I'm well known in the Sierras for my expertise on advanced stillwater techniques and love to share them. Both Rob and I do seminars at shows and fly club meetings and now offer these clinics that are on site, allowing particpants to use what they have learned. Rob is a commercial fly and product designer and has also managed the Reno Fly Shop for years. He specializes in hosting outings and teaching large groups, his gourmet backcountry cooking is the icing on the cake with these clinics.
The clinic will be a 2 day fishing event and will cover advanced Stillwater techniques, proper rigging, shore line wading as well as float tube, pontoon boat and small pram techniques. There will be lots and lots of free time to practice and catch some of those big beautiful Rainbows at Lake Davis. Space is limited to 10 anglers.
