Night One: The class will meet at 6:00 PM at Western Rivers Flyfisher (1071 East 900 South, SLC, UT). This class will be focused on showing the basic knowledge and understanding about where and how to use this technique.
6:00-7:00 PM: Class will start with introductions, and focus on presenting the questions that will need to be answered over the duration of the class. We will discuss the history behind European Nymphing Techniques, and show you the flies and leaders necessary to be successful.
7:00-8:00 PM: This part of the class will focus on understanding where and how to present your flies, and on how to set-up your leader to achieve the best presentation possible. The class will culminate by building your own series of European nymphing leaders that you will use on Saturday’s on-water session.
8:00-8:20 PM: Class Wrap-up with Q&A session and maps will be passed out to where we will be meeting for Saturday.
Second Class: We will meet on the Middle Provo. I will make sure to look at the flow charts prior to Thursday’s class, and whatever is running reasonably will be the river of choice for the class.
8:00 AM: Meet at Middle Provo. Set up gear, flies, and make our way down to the river.
8:30-9:30 AM: We will do a seine sample, and see what our #1 and #2 most prevalent bugs are in the section of river we will be set up on, and answer any and all questions on the life cycle of the insects. From here, we will spread out, and Nick will demonstrate the proper and improper ways to present your flies.
9:30-11:30 AM: Students will spread out, and work on their technique. Nick will come around and make sure that any and all questions are being addressed and answered. We will focus on fast/deep pockets and shallow fast pockets. *Students will be shown how to rig their flies accordingly for these two water types.
11:30-12:00 AM: Wrap-Up/Questions.
