Much more to come on specials for Saturday as we get close to the event! On Sunday, March 20th we will be featuring 2 AMAZING (4 HR) Streamside clinics. Our morning clinic will feature an in depth look at European Nymphing with Josh Graffam. We featured an hour long clinic last year during the event, and it sold out in one hour, and was so popular we are bringing it back in a half day format! Josh is a member of Fly Fishing Team USA and one of the top Euro Nymphers on planet earth. The afternoon clinic will offer an in depth look at Rocky Mountain Tenkara Technique, and will be instructed by our very own Paul Vertrees. Paul is one of the top certified Tenkara instructors in N. America, and will be spotlighting methods for applying Tenkara to rivers like the Arkansas as well as small backcountry watersheds!
