Lance Gray & Company's Steelhead School is conducted on the Feather River. The Feather is one of the North Valley's best Steelhead fishers. During the peak of the season, landing 4-6 steelies is not uncommon. The school includes one instructor for every two students. We use drift boats to travel the river to each classroom. We will work on Steelhead skills using both standard and switch rods.
The students will learn the crucial techniques of casting, mending and reading water. The students will also learn advance single handed rod techniques such as high sticking, single swing and using the dead drift technique.
Students will learn two handed techniques, the snap-tee, single and double spey, and controlled swings using the Switch Rods.
The Steelhead School will give students the confidence, skills and knowledge to choose the proper techniques and equipment to get the fly in front of the fish.
The two day school gives the students one on one instruction with the instructors and time to practice on the water with their new found skills.
The course is designed for novice and intermediate Steelheaders wishing to learn Steelhead techniques and behaviors.
All schools are taught by one instructor per every two enrolled students...cost is $425 per student for the two day school.
Rods, reels, flies, leaders, and indicators are all inclusive however, wading gear is not.
Riverside lunches (hot or cold), beverages, and snacks are provided
Students may bring their own equipment if they wish.
