Gerry's Fly Fishing Tips
Every year I train almost 100 people how to fly fish. About
three-quarters of those are students in the Northeast
Fly Fishing School and the rest are clients that want a private
lesson on the water. Each of these clients/students represents
a learning opportunity . . . for me. I learn a lot from the
questions they ask, which give me a different perspective than my
decades of fly fishing experience. Things that I take for granted
get expanded in value when I see how they benefit others.
A lot of times a particular fishing situation requires use of a
technique that I have learned or developed over the years.
Some of these techniques have worked their way into my repetoire
and get taught to many of my clients. It has become apparent
to me that some of these tricks of the trade are not widely utilized
by beginner and intermediate level fly fishers, but should be.
What they don't teach you in Fly Fishing School
I have started collecting these tips and recording them.
I present them here in the form of audio podcasts that can be downloaded
and used to expand your fly fishing knowledge. If you already
know these tips - great! If not, listen and try them for yourself,
as you need them. Your questions, comments and general feedback
are appreciated. Also, if there are other fly fishing-related
things that have been stumping you, I would like to hear those,
too. I'll be adding and modifying these tips as time goes
