Trouts Fly Fishing would like to thank everyone who participated in our On-Stream Beginner Fly Fishing School that was held this past Saturday. The fishing conditions were tough but everyone fished hard and caught fish. In our beginner school, anglers learn the basics of fly fishing including casting, reading water, entomology, still water techniques, and fly selection. Our next class is set for June 15th and conditions should be perfect.

In the first two parts of this three part series we talked about the South Platte River and carp behavior in general. In our third installment, we’ll look at what fish you should avoid and what fish you should key in on – as well as some basic strategies for presenting a fly to a feeding carp. Lastly, we’ll talk about some basic fly patterns that should get you ready to hit the Denver South Platte River.
