May Monthly Meeting – May 26, 2016
Fly Fishing Trophy Eastern Sierra Stillwater with Ernie Gulley
Stillwaters can be very tough and intimidating to fish with a fly rod; it is much harder to read stillwater than a moving stream or river. This sometimes keeps anglers from enjoying the pleasures of this type of fishing and the opportunities for catching monster trout that exist in this environment. He will break down every aspect of stillwater fly fishing to us so that we can feel confident in fishing stillwaters whenever we encounter them. Ernie will break down how to read stillwater and how to figure out what is hiding underneath the vast amount of water when we look out onto a lake.
He will also show us how to prepare for trips with the different styles of rods, lines, leaders, flies and water craft that can be used to enjoy a stillwater outing. Ernie will discuss fish migrations around a lake and where they can most likely be found in each of the four seasons, Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter. He will go over all the bugs that can be encountered throughout the four seasons and which bugs will be the most sought by trout. Most trout are very large in a stillwater environment for good reason, they have an enormous amount of food to choose from.
So join us on May 26th at 7:00 pm where Ernie Gulley will unlock some of the mysteries we can encounter while fishing in a stillwater and help us catch a monster trout! Details
