This is a one day fly fishing school that demonstrates the finer points of dry fly fishing and allows students who have some experience to advance their skill level and fine tune their approach.  Our Intermediate Dry Fly Clinic will be held at our WCR Ranch - located on a small tributary of the upper Colorado River, approximately 35 miles in length. The creek rises in northwestern Grand County, in the Arapaho National Forest at the top of the continental divide and flows southeast toward the Colorado River. The skills taught during these classes typically will adhere to the most productive techniques for that time of year.

Learn the basics, versatility and advantages of using a switch rod on the water with one of our tenured casting instructors.  In this class you will improve both single hand and two-handed casts – and have a shot at hooking beautiful Colorado fish at the renowned YR Ranch on the lower Blue River. Spey casting with a switch rod requires less effort than standard overhand casts if done correctly and allows you to cover water you couldn't cover with standard casting technique.
