Jeff's schedule on March 11th:

10 AM:  Fly Fishing Warmwater- Bass, Pike, Carp & More

Despite all the different species of fish out there to catch on a fly most anglers only fly fish for trout, salmon and char.  They’ll drive right past the neighborhood bass pond and then travel four hours to fish a crowed river on opening day.  Just the thought doesn’t make sense to Jeff and because of this he’s made it a personal campaign to share his passion of fishing for warmwater fish species.

“Warmwater Fly Fishing – Bass, Pike, Carp and More” not only encourages you to give some new fish species a try but also teaches tactics for many fish such as smallmouth and largemouth bass, pike, carp and more.  Learn the best flies, what rods to use and what leaders work best.  You’ll be amazed at Jeff’s gorgeous fish photos and entertaining stories about some incredible fish that very possibly live down the street from you!

12 PM: Fly Fishing in Baja

Baja offers one of the best saltwater fly fishing venues of all.  The lengthy peninsula offers challenging beach fly fishing opportunities for roosterfish, rocky points for leader breaking snapper and a bluewater fly fishery that rivals any destination in the world.  Baja has saltwater fly fishing fun for all.

Join Jeff as he takes you through nearly 25 years of chasing the fish of Baja.  Tighten your seatbelt as he shows photos from his first trip where he and friends drove from Idaho to Cabo and lived off the beach.  Then enjoy some of his stunning images of big fish and great scenery from his most recent trips.  Listen as he shares techniques learned not only for Baja but saltwater fly fishing in general.  As always, expect to see not just the regular game fish of Baja, but an assortment of species that will make your head spin!

2 PM: Streamer Tricks for More & Larger Trout

When Jeff arrived on the scene in Jackson Hole, Wyoming back in 1987 he was a dry fly fishing purist. He nymphed and tossed streamers on occasion but he spent most of his time at places like the Henry’s Fork targeting the best hatches. As Jeff made friends and found older mentors he picked up on the fact that they often caught bigger trout with streamers so he began learning the art of streamer fishing for himself.

It didn’t take long for Jeff to become proficient with the streamers and soon he was tweaking techniques. Some of his tricks worked so well that other anglers came to him with their questions – especially after he won the famous Jackson Hole One Fly with a streamer!

Join Jeff as he talks about the equipment he likes from rods to lines to picking the right fly, how to rig multiple flies, stripping speeds and overall methods.

4 PM: World's Best Trout Destinations

Jeff’s vast knowledge of fly fishing for trout is not limited to his home waters of the Yellowstone Country. His easy-going way of life, his being in the fly fishing business for more than 30 years and his connections with lodges and guides throughout the world have allowed him to travel.

Join Jeff as he takes you to some of the greatest trout fishing destinations on the planet. Pick up some of the valuable international trout techniques he’s learned along the way, enjoy the stories behind these distant trout and find out how you can find your way to any of these magnificent fishing destinations.
