*How to fish the Chironomid method, with a floating line and long leaders and tippets
*The Countdown Method
*All about fly patterns that catch fish in lakes
*Rods, reels, lines leaders, tippets
*Rigs and knots
* Retrieves for various sinking lines and for a floating line with various imitative flies
Again, that’s just a bit of what you’ll cover.
