Got the itch for big fish?
Here is the official announcement for the Streamer class that I have been talking about lately. As of right now we have 2 different dates available. Both dates are Saturdays and are for two (2) separate classes, each 4-5 hours in duration.
First Date Saturday October 6, 7 AM @ Upcountry Sportfishing in New Hartford.
Second Date Saturday October 20, 7 AM @ Upcountry Sportfishing in New Hartford.
Tuition: $100 per person, 4 person maximum for each class. 50% Deposits secure your seat, and can be made through Upcountry at 352 Main Street, Route 44, New Hartford Connecticut or by calling: (860)-379-1952, just be cognizant that the remainder will be due on the day of the class.
Duration: 4-5 hours
Curriculum: This class will consist of one part classroom/PowerPoint presentation and one part on stream hands on instruction. The class is limited to 4 people as it will benefit all who attend in a smaller setting. The class will require the participant to bring their fly rod of choice, waders and all terminal tackle they have for fishing streamers. It is encouraged that participants bring a notepad and pen as the class is a 100% open forum participatory scenario. Such things as gear, terminal tackle, leader construction, fly selection, reading water, theory and practice, various tackle and techniques for an array of scenarios and situations as well as angler approach and seasons will be covered. If the two classes fill quickly and there is enough interest, additional classes will be offered.
IF you have been under the assumption that streamer fishing is a last ditch effort when all else fails, a high water only tactic or anything of the like, your home waters aren't good for streamers, then this class should answer any of the questions that you may have. Remember, the class title says it all, so be prepared to walk away from this class with a new outlook on fishing streamers.
