Ivan Orsic / Jan 6, 2021

Getting started in fly fishing can be overwhelming. But, it doesn't need to be hard. We're here to make it as simple and approachable, as possible.

In this episode of Starting Off in Fly Fishing, Director of Education Courtney Despos talks about how to set up your dry fly rig. Fishing flies on the surface is one of the most visual and rewarding ways to catch a trout on the fly rod - don't miss out. It's commonly assumed that dry fly fishing can't be done during the winter. But, that's not the case. While you're not fishing hoppers, when the right conditions present themselves you can find a pod of fish rising to midges in the middle of winter.
