301: Reading water 2 part class

Reading water, 2 part class.

Reading a Trout Stream; Strategies for Locating Trout
  How do you find trout in a stream when you can't see them? Why do some sections of a river fish better than others? Where do I start fishing a stream and how do I fish it?
  This course teaches the angler how to prepare for different water, read different currents and structures to find trout, approach specific sections of water, and adjust a fly fishing rig accordingly in order to successfully find and catch trout in a variety of moving water environments. It is truly rewarding when you can put the puzzle pieces together to "spot" a trout without seeing it.
Classroom topics will include: trip research, trout behavior, anatomy of a trout stream (structure and current), fly fishing rig construction and adjustment, and scenarios for approaching and fishing specific water structure and current. Classroom material will show examples from local rivers and streams.
  Streamside topics will include: Specific examples of structure and current taught in the classroom portion of the course, approach and fishing techniques for each example, and interactive stream dissection to identify likely holding areas for trout. This course will be limited to eight students and two Angler’s Covey guides will be teaching this course in order to ensure that each student gets personal streamside attention.
  The course is a two part course consisting of a two hour classroom session on Saturday, followed by a four hour on-stream session on Sunday morning. Meet up time is 8am on Sunday behind the Deckers store in Deckers, CO.
  Waders will be provided, but students must have their own rods/reels/terminal tackle and transportation for the stream side portion.
  Doughnuts and coffee will be served Sunday morning. Fishing licenses required for streamside instruction.
Cost is $90.00 per student
