Typically one of the busiest educational events of the year, this is one you do not want to miss! As many can imagine, Griff spends most of his summer guiding, while the offseason is his treasured time to chase fish around Central Oregon. Unfortunately, many of the fisheries we frequent in the summer are closed. So, you have to get creative with angling opportunities at times. Grab a spot at one of our last Fly and Field University events of the year!
With summer flying by, it is almost time to switch out that trout gear for your steelhead gear. Join us at the shop August 13th, for an educational series on steelhead fishing in Central Oregon.
