Eagles Lodge

Wenatchee, WA

(5:45pm Wet Fly Hour Grab A Bite -Talk – Meet and Greet A Short Business Meeting then Carol's presentation at 7:30pm)



Carol will be presenting a powerpoint show on fly fishing photography and also do a fly tying demonstration this coming Thursday at the Wenatchee Valley Fly Fishers, Wenatchee, Washington.

Over the past two decades Carol Ann Morris's photographs have not only appeared in most of her husband Skip Morris's 18 fly-fishing and -tying books but on the covers and interior pages of such magazines as Gray's Sporting Journal and Fly Fishing and Tying Journal. Carol speaks across the US at fly clubs and fly-fishing shows.

It seems fly fishers want to record their biggest and most beautiful fish, the fascinating rivers and lakes and beaches they fish and explored—the very heart of their beloved sport—with a camera. Carol teaches them how to make their photos crisp and vivid, balanced and expressive. She demonstrates and explains the Rule of Thirds, effective use of light, the Magic Hour, UFOs (Unidentified Foreign Objects), how to photograph fish, and many other straightforward concepts anyone can use to improve their photographs. Also, Carol will show various failed photos and explain what caused the problems.

A Three Day Workshop

Trout Tactics with Skip Morris and Rick Hafele
at Antelope Creek Lodge

September 14 - 16, 2012

4140 Churn Creek Road
Redding, CA 96002

Call Now at:

(530)222-3555
or
(800)669-3474


The Fly Shop is thrilled to be working with acclaimed authors and anglers Skip Morris and Rick Hafele.


Skip and Rick are two of the best in the business, and they're hosting a specialized school program at Antelope Creek Lodge.
Each day's program will start with a delicious breakfast prepared by our own Antelope Creek Lodge staff, followed by a morning program that combines slide shows and classroom presentations with on-the-water, hands on observation and training. Lunch is enjoyed on the Lodge's deck overlooking slurping trout on Antelope Creek. After the midday break, specific casting and fishing techniques applicable to the morning's session (such as how to fish a specific type of insect imitation in a specific life phase) will be discussed and demonstrated, then everyone will hit the water and put their newfound expertise to use on the rainbow and brown trout of Antelope Creek Ranch. Fish weary and overwhelmed with knowledge, guests enjoy another memorable meal before sharing stories, asking and answering questions, and picking Skip and Rick's brains until collapsing, exhausted and rewarded, to a restful slumber with the sounds of the creek bubbling just outside their window.

Daily seminar topics and techniques to be covered include entomology and fly selection for a variety of aquatic and terrestrial insects, including mayflies, caddis, stoneflies, and midges. We'll cover both stillwater and small stream strategies, and work on improving our casting in different fishing situations encountered every day on different types of waters, such as distance casting, accuracy, short casts, roll casts, and presentation casts. The Trout Tactics program is an exceptional learning opportunity, and a fun-filled weekend for any anglers looking to expand upon their basic knowledge and understanding of fly fishing for trout.

You will walk away from this weekend a better, more confident angler.
