Every wonder what it would be like to fly fish the Truckee River or are you interested in refreshing some long ignored skills?

We are teaching an introductory clinic for a few anglers to break through some of the skills and topics that can be barriers to getting started.

Alex Henderson, RFS instructor/guide, will walk you through key elements that will begin to help you develop an understanding and experience to be self-sufficient on the water and to chase the legendary fish of the Truckee River.

This will be a 3 hour clinic covering the following topics: 

  • Intro to gear, vocabulary and different tactics/techniques we use on the Truckee River
  • Discussion of knots and rigging
  • Instruction of casting mechanics and common casting techniques on the river
  • Demonstration of reading, approaching and exposure to what to look for on the water.

Here are details of the upcoming clinic
