Product description

Group Lesson: (4 Students - 1 Instructor)

Duration: 4hr

Taught by: Chris Krysciak

Classes are held in Fergus ON, on the Grand River (roughly 1.5hr drive from Toronto)

Cost is per person

Czech nymphing, Spanish nymphing, French nymphing, Polish nymphing, all can be described under the heading of "euro nymphing". Over the last few years there has been a huge surge in interest in this way of fishing and for the very simple reason, it works! Learn how the gear works, leader construction, fly selection, casting, adapting to conditions and more. Compared to our introductory class, in this session we will be covering advanced techniques including nymphing at long range, using lighter leaders, fishing tandem flies, and gear modifications. Students should already have experience euro nymphing. All taught by Fly Fishing Team Canada member Chris Krysciak.

Please note that the time allotted for each class is the average amount of time it takes to cover all topics. Depending on students we may cover all intended topics early and have time for additional instruction, or we might not complete all intended topics in the allotted time. Course times are firm.

Courses are 4 hours long and are open to 4 students each. If water temperatures on the river exceed 68 degrees F the class will be postponed in order to ensure safe catch and release fishing.  If a minimum of 2 students are not enrolled 48hrs before the scheduled date we will postpone the class.
