Fly Fishing for Fall Trout Clinic *FREE*

Thur. September 27th, 7-9pm

Fall is a great time to be a trout fisherman!  Cooler temperatures can make for some of the most enjoyable fishing of the year, and this energetic and entertaining program will give you the insights you need to get the most from your time on the water.  We will start with a look at how the arrival of fall affects fish and insect behavior.  Then we will turn our attention to trip planning, fly choice, tactics, and more (including strategies for dealing with those pesky fall leaves!).

This program will also take a special look at the ins and outs of fall fishing for brown trout, with an emphasis on fishing for fall Browns in the Chattahoochee tailwater.  You will learn several proven strategies while also gaining an understanding of how fall brown trout fishing and fall brown trout spawning interact.

We look forward to seeing you and sharing the excitement of fall trout fishing!
