Following on the heals of Nymph Fishing Basics and Advanced Nymph Fishing, Rick Hafele and John Smeraglio provide the viewer another excellent DVD in the series from Laughing River Productions.  In this DVD Rick and John dive into the challenges of catching trout in or near the surface.  This means understanding the behavior of trout as well as how insects behave during their emergence.  Shot at various locations around Oregon, including the beautiful Yamsi Ranch in the upper Klamath basin, this DVD provides critical details about mayflies, stoneflies, caddisflies, Diptera, and terrestrials along with equipment and tactics, all with an eye on having fun while doing it!  Advanced Tactics for Emergers & Dries will definitely give you a new angle to catching trout on the rise.

Guide : John Hyde: John has lived on the Yamsi ranch all his life and started fishing the waters of the Williamson river when he was 5 years old. He has a deep love and understanding of the river, its aquatic life and the lands that surround it. He has lifetime knowledge of where the fish are hiding and how to fish for them. John has a Federation of Fly Fishing (FFF) casting instructor’s certification and enjoys teaching and helping all levels of anglers. John can handle most groups that arrive, if additional guides are needed it can be arranged.

For the non fisherman you can walk the banks of the beautiful spring fed Williamson River, canoe the lake, relax on the porch with a good book, watch hundreds of birds fly through the valley including the Sand Hill Crane, or enjoy a trip to Crater Lake, located about 50 miles from Yamsi Ranch, or visit Klamath Marsh Wildlife Refuge.
