Fort Collins Fly Fishing Lessons: A New Beginning

Today's Blog Post

Meet Greeley's newest nymph fisherman.

Mr. Shetter completed our new E.I. Fly™5X class.  This class provides clients:

  • Create/customize your own class  
  • Focus on your trouble areas (e.g., casting or nymph, dry, wet, river, pond, lake fishing).
  • Fix nagging problems that prevent you from catching fish
  • Learn how to fish the conditions (e.g., deep-fast water)  
  • Combines technical casting and fishing instruction, in-water.  

He wanted advance instruction on nymph fishing (Euro Tight Line).  How did he do on extremely high-fast water of the Big Thompson? 

In short time, we corrected a handful of classic beginner errors.  He finished the day with approximately 10-14 bows and browns, with 12" being the largest.  Considering the conditions of the Big Thompson, I say he did EXCELLENT and is now on the right path (that's our goal).

Client Testimonial:

"Recently I had the privilege of spending an afternoon on the river with Mark.  Unfortunately, I didn't grow up fly-fishing and it's only been a few years since I decided to dive into the sport.  Needless to say, it's been a blast learning... but it's also been incredibly frustrating!  I was amazed at how just a few hours of instruction with Mark has breathed a new excitement into me for this amazing sport.  (He also introduced me to euro-nymphing, which is a lot of fun if you haven't tried it yet!)  If you're looking for a coach to help you move your game to a new level, Mark is your man.  He's patient and full of a passion for fly-fishing that can't help but rub off on you.  Oh, and one other thing... even on a bad day, you'll catch lots of fish with him!
