A great way to fish still waters is from a “personal water craft”. Better know as a float tubes or pontoon boats these devices allow a fly fisherperson to move around in still water to reach positions that a wading or bank fisherperson cannot reach. And, they give you the finite control that is sometimes lacking when fishing from a boat.
We have scheduled this seminar before the June Fishouts to Manzanita Lake and Lava Lakes in Oregon to allow new float tubers an opportunity to get in on these great fishouts. So, on Saturday, May 10th, we will hold a seminar on “Float Tubes” that will cover their different types, the related equipment, basic operation, how to fish from a tube or pontoon and, most importantly, safety related to tubes and wading. You will be able to see and discuss the various types as well as try out some tubes. We will cover what you need to fish from a tube and see some other member’s setups. Also, a short presentation on water safety will be included. We will hold this seminar beginning at 10am at the boat ramp at Stevens Creek Reservoir.
Learn what to look for in a floatation device that fits your style and cost before you buy. You do not need bring your own if you have one.
There is no fee for this seminar, but handout materials will be provided.
