Time: Saturday 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm
Instructor: Mary Ann Dozier
Description: The best fly anglers know how to cast, and we all understand the importance of knowing where the fish are. Analyzing water requires that we determine the best angle from which to approach the water based on prime fish lies, and the impact of water depths and currents to your fly and line after you cast. Once you have analyzed the water and made a successful cast, you need to artfully manage the drift of the fly. Line management is the manipulation of your line and leader after your fly hits the water. Successfully integrating several line management techniques enables the angler to get a longer natural drift of the fly. Thus, more fish looking at your fly – resulting in more hook-ups.
Whether a beginner, intermediate or advanced angler you will leave the class with the foundation to read the water, determine how to approach it, and how to manage your line & leader for the longest natural drift. The presentation will be a mix of photos, video, and hands-on exercises.
