DELAWARE RIVER CLUB SELECTIVITY CLINIC-FEW SPOTS LEFT!


                    I have three spots left for you to join us for an in-depth Selectivity tailwater trout weekend . It is next weekend , Labor Day weekend in the lovely Catskills, which should be cool by then ( NOTE: Due to the request of many that have plans the first Labor Day weekend, we most likely be adding another weekend clinic the following weekend- Sept. 10/11th ) . Should see fall hatches like Isonychia/Heptagenia hebe ( the larger modeled wing sulpher etc.) 
If you are a beginner, or advanced tailwater/freestone lover who is trying to figure out the extreme selective behavior these wild browns and rainbows love to exhibit, here is a great learning and sharing opportunity that 'will up your game' and allow you to crack the code that always baffles even the most expert of all fly anglers.  Here is the link to Delaware River Club for more information- call them and reserve your attendance for what promises to be a great event!

My goal for the intimate setting are many, but mainly to make you come away with an extreme in-depth understanding of how a seasoned tailwater trout guide, which I have been for over 20 years on my current lodge home waters of the Muskegon, thinks and commands the approach on these finicky/fussy complex waters and why guides are so effective in getting you on large rising/nymphing/streamer trout when the average Joe/Jane angler struggle on their outings to figure out their secrets. Tailwaters are brutally complex and so are its trout behavior, hatches and daily fluctuations. 

 Having fished the Delaware system from the early 80's since I grew up in NY, and I  fish the Delaware/Beaverkill/ Neversink often since we have a summer home in the Catskills.
