Catch Steelhead Fever on Sept 25th at California Fly Shop

|Now that the summer is coming to a close (yes, that strange weather was actually summer) and we're getting back to our normal schedules, you might think that trout season is starting to wind down. You might, that is, if you weren't infected with Steelhead fever. Those poor souls are counting the days, glaring at the sun and checking their waders for leaks as they get ready to swing flies at their favorite trout: the Steelhead. |
While the weather hasn't cooled much, come join these intrepid fly fishers as they pull out their layers, schedule their fishing dates and tie their super-secret flies for their not-so-secret sweet spots (Trinity, anyone?).
Curious? Come to California Fly Shop's Steelhead Day on September 25th. We're bringing in a number of great speakers from Patagonia Inc., Winston Rods and Confluence Outfitters to teach us all where to go and how to fish these beauties -- and how to stay warm while doing it.
• Learn where and how to catch Steelhead from industry pro Andrew Harris
• Cast Winston rods on our pond with Dale Hightower
• Find out how to stay warm with Patagonia layering for cold-weather fishing
• Learn how to tie Steelhead flies with Dave McCants
