Euro nymphing 101 (Takes Place in NC)
This class is a two part class designed to show you the proper way to start your journey into euro nymphing. The hardest part about getting started in euro nymphing is having flies tied in the right assortment of weights.
Part 1 (Tying)
The first half of the class will take place in ORVIS and will be two 2 hour of fly tying in the evening from 5pm -7pm. We will tie variations of hare’s ears, pheasant tails, eggs, worms, and stoneflies in a variety of weights and you will be given a list of flies to have tied for the on stream class later. We will provide a list of fly tying materials for you to buy. This class will be taught by former Fly Fishing Team USA member and ORVIS Guide of the Year Brown Hobson.
Part 2 (Fishing)
The fishing portion will be 4 hours of on stream practice from 10-2 and will be offered on a couple Saturdays. There will not be a lunch break. We will practice fishing deep water, shallow water, fast water, and slow water. You will get to experience how the different weighted flies ride in different types of water and figure out how to change fly weights to keep the appropriate amount of slack in your system. This class will be taught by former Fly Fishing Team USA member and ORVIS Guide of the Year Brown Hobson.
