Smallmouth Fishing on the Shenandoah River Workshop

January 15 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm EST

This 2-hour class will show you the best access points on both the North Fork and South Fork of the Shenandoah River by utilizing my master map and the books I have written–Virginia Blue Ribbon Streams and Fly Fishing Techniques for Smallmouth Bass.  I will be presenting a slide show on how to fish streamers, nymphs, and topwater flies in the various sections of the river as the season progresses. There are special discussions on selecting the specific artificial nymphs to match the natural nymphs and the best tactics to use. Likewise, after identifying the natural minnows in the river I will show you how to choose the best flies to match these minnows and the most productive tactics. Topwater fly fishing for bass is one of the most exciting forms of angling so I will reveal the special methods which will enable you to refine your tactics. My goal with this class is to help you find excellent fishing throughout the Shenandoah Valley for smallmouth bass.   Please note this is in a classroom setting at our fly shop in Edinburg, VA and you will not be on the stream. Typically students who attend this class end of taking one of our Smallmouth Bass On The Stream Schools during the summer to get hands on experience on the Shenandoah River.
