Problem Solving Clinic w/Stephen Tomasovich (Big T) & Gordon Vanderpool
Thursday February 15th 7-9pm ($30)

Have you ever walked into a stream, opened  your fly box, and realized you were about to guess at what to use, where to target fish to be most productive, and what technique you should be using.  I remember being there many times and it took hundreds of hours of on stream experience before I felt better about my decision making.

Gordon Vanderpool and I will be guiding you through the decision making process based on the conditions you face every time you walk in a stream to give you the best odds to consistently catch fish.

Whether you are new to the sport or seasoned, this is a class that you should take something away from.  This will be a classroom type setting with questions welcomed and participation encouraged.
