A typical fly fishing day with us involves a mixture of tactics. We quarter cast and swing wet fly patterns in the classic "greased line" method. We team fish the swinging fly with extended drifts using boat movement. We quietly walk the boat alongside holding water while you cast from stable boat decks. We cast dries to undercuts and pockets, and we swing waking patterns across glides. We also dead drift nymphs under indicators but you will not spend your entire day watching a "bobber" while fly fishing the Klamath or Trinity. It is important when you book with us to tell us what level of activity you prefer. Aggressive wade fishermen may be taken to different water than those wanting a more relaxing day entirely in the boat.
We suggest you bring two rods: a floating line rod and an intermediate sink tip rod in a 5 wt - 8 wt range. Any gear you do not have, we do have. We provide the guide, the drift boat dory (2 guests per boat), shuttles and tippet and fly patterns as needed. It usually works best if you bring your own tippet and patterns and we fill-in the voids. We also stock an inventory of rental Patagonia waders and boots if you need help outfitting some of your party. Don't forget your rain jacket and layers of poly-pro, since we do not cancel a rainy fish day. Trips are only cancelled when the river is unsafe or un-fishable.
