Building Your on the Water Skills

Know Where the Fish are and How to get your Fly Line to them

May 22, 2021 @ 9:00 am 11:30 am PDT


Do you desire to catch more fish? Your skills for reading the water and managing your fly line increase your chance of hooking. Mary Ann will share her insights she has gleaned from over a decade of guiding for reading the water and line management.

At the end of this workshop, you will:
  • Identify likely spots for fish to feed
  • Manage your fly line to get the longest natural drift
  • Mend the fly line and pull the fly line in and feed the fly line out


So you are at the riverside, and you are looking across the water. You seriously want to catch a fish, but you don’t know where to start. You were told, fish the seams, fish the structure – but you are still asking, “Where do I start.” In this workshop, you will learn an efficient approach to dissect the water and maximize your fishing time on fishy water. You’ll learn a practical foundation for reading the water and nuances for different water types, from small creeks to large rivers and from freestones to spring creeks.

So now you have planned out the water you want to fish, the next step is how do I position myself. The last step is line management, from your fly touching the water to the hook set. You’ll learn line management techniques specific to your position on the water. You’ll also get insight into presentation casts.
