Still-Water Fishing Crowley Lake
The art of catching big fish with small flies
Beginner to Advanced Anglers
Crowley Lake holds some of the most nutrient-rich water of
the region making it the home for some of the fastest-growing
and strongest trout in the area. A staple of the Crowley Lake
trout’s diet is the chironomid, an aquatic insect called
a “midge” that populates the lake by the millions.
Utilizing different “midging” techniques, we will
fish the lake from my bass-style boat. Still-water float-tube
clinics are also available.
5 Hour Lake Trip Includes: Flies, Rod/Reel, Terminal Tackle and Beverages.
BOAT TRIP ONE OR TWO ANGLERS - $ 350.00

Steelhead Fishing In Southern Oregon’s Rogue River
In the fall of 1995 I started my annual pilgrimage to explore legendary rivers of Southern Oregon and court a beautiful girl named Pamela who coincidentally resided in Grants Pass. I made Pamela my wife and promised the rivers that I would return every year in search of its elusive Steelhead.
We will be floating the river in my new Hyde drift Boat, that will comfortly fish one or two anglers. We primarily fish out of the boat but we like to pull off and comb the Runs by swinging and dead drifting flies. The wading is mostly easy but plenty of water to challenge advanced.
Our target is the Steelhead, this turbo charger ocean running Trout from 2-10 pounds. We average 5-10 fish a day but have had days of twenty fish to hand by 10:00 AM., and days we get goose eggs get handed out to all.
The Octobers in Southern Oregon are spectacular; the fall colors are to best to be seen buy boat, the average temp in the 70’s and little or no rain.
Spawning King Salmon fill the runs on there final mating ritual, and Geese and ducks clouds the sky.
Most of my clients fly to our closest international airport in Medford Or. (40 minuets away from Grants Pass). A shuttle can be arranged but car rental is highly recommended and an extra day or two to explore this beautiful part of the world is advised. The Holiday Inn express Grants Pass has comfortable accommodations with restaurants within walking distance.
This trip cost is $425.00 for one or two anglers per day; it includes river-side lunch, beverages, rod / a reel (7-8wt.), terminal tackle and flies. A list of necessities will be sent to you with conformation of trip.
This trip is recommended for intermediate to advanced fly fishers, young and young at heart.
My promise to you is the same as all of our adventures; is that I will be on time and prepared greeting you with a smile, I will have plenty of flies, tackle and good food for the day, my promise of a safety for you and your family and FUN.
I invite you to come up to Oregon and float down the Rogue River with me, and you’ll understand what trout guides do on there time off.
DRIFT BOAT TRIP ONE OR TWO ANGLERS - $ 500.00
I welcome you to bring your own gear and favorite flies but our trips include any gear and flies you will need for the day.
CZECH NYMPH CLASSES
"I was thinking about what fascinates me about nymphing. Some people prefer the dry fly, others the wet fly, but the nymph has something mysterious about it that I never grow tired of. There is just a moment, maybe a hundredth of a second of uncertainty, when you strike. The take is often seen as a slight movement, or felt as a sudden heaviness of the line, the end of the line momentarily moves to the side or there is simply a sixth sense that says that this is the fish. You strike and, at that time, you do not know whether you are fast to the riverbed or a fish. And that feeling, when the leader tightens, when the fish moves, no other style of fishing will offer you that." ---Milan Hladik
In the summer of 1995 I was honored to fish under some of the finest guides in the country on the legendary rivers of Northern California. On many of these deep fast rivers the technique of choice is ‘tight line fishing’, this high stick method was adjusted and perfected over the years but the roots come from the Czech Republic. This style of fly-fishing, known as Czech nymphing, is a pure style of fishing done without indicators. I have found it’s an essential tool to add to your arsenal of weapons for catching trout. I have mastered this art throughout the years, but most of all I have simplified the art of teaching this craft. My goal, upon completion of this class, is to give you the freedom to rig your own rod and display and understand this style. I recommend it for intermediate to advanced flyfishers.
This five hour class will be devoted to equipment, terminal tackle rigging, reading water and fishing techniques.
* This class with be taught throughout the season, upon demand
A complete summary of class on DVD will be given to each student at the end of class.
