pictures - 50 tips to improve your fly-fishing
(new for 2018 season)
Most fly-fishing clubs website's line-up of annual
speakers seem to look familiar. Often, the subject matter is a
specific river, region or species of fish. Just like some of our
presentations! It is with this information in mind that I
started to build this presentation several years ago. This
presentation is a essentially a collection of pictures designed to lead a
fun, light conversation about tips and techniques learned or "stolen" over
our years of fly-tying and fly-fishing. A handout, listing all 50 tips

- Northeast Yellowstone
& fly-fishing) (new for 2018 season)
While we are certainly not experts on the vast wilderness of
Yellowstone Park, we have made several extended trips- specifically to the
Northeast part of the Park. This presentation will take you on a journey as you
fly into Billings, Montana, visit the sleepy historic mining town of Red
Lodge, then drive up and over the nation's most historic scenic road
covering Beartooth Pass and finally parachute into the
Northeastern part of Yellowstone Park. Plenty of hiking, fly-fishing, wildlife and
spectacular scenery is sure to catch your attention as you sit back and look
at perhaps the most majestic valleys in the country.
Streams such as Pebble Creek, Soda Butte Creek, the Lamar River and
Slough Creek are featured complete with fishing discussions, fly patterns
and strategies to plan your next trip.
this presentation can be used for a
monthly club meeting in a shorter version or in a slightly longer version for a larger general audience such as an

fly-fishing commentary and fly patterns all focused on land born insects
known as- Terrestrials- the important bug when there is no "hatch".
We cover Ants; Beetles; Crickets; Grasshoppers; Lady Bugs and Damsel &
Dragon flies with fun facts and practical fishing applications for warm and
cold water fish. We continue to add photos, fly patterns and fishing
situations to this presentation on an annual basis.

Working with CDC-
(most popular demonstration)
note, this is a DEMONSTRATION (not a
slide show format)
is to conduct a full length demonstration featuring CDC. We will talk
about CDC as a material, where it comes from, it's characteristics, where to
purchase it and what determines good quality from poor. We will
demonstration tie (on a projected screen) several CDC fly patterns
showcasing the CDC Feather Rolling Tool and other techniques.
We will talk about specific fishing applications for each pattern tied.
We will discuss the various "floatants" and "cleaning agents" available in
the market place. And finally, we will attempt to demonstrate rather
convincingly both the productive powers of CDC as well as the ease of
restoring CDC while on the stream fishing.
this DEMONSTRATION is for a
fly-tying audience primarily and a fly-fishing audience secondarily.
we also offer this as a group tying workshop. (contact for pricing if your group or club has an
MIDGE Fly-Fishing- (tactics, techniques & patterns)
(2nd most popular
This presentation is designed to introduce fly-fishers and fly-tiers to the
world of small flies. Years of subtle, slow moving, gentle
flowing spring creek fishing - resulting in countless hours of frustration
trying to hook big trout, feeding in the surface film on micro size
"whatever" have all contributed to Glenn's sickness for MIDGES.
Glenn's goal of this presentation is to try to draw upon the many books,
magazine articles, personal friendships and other experiences he has had to
debunk some of the mystery behind "small fly fishing".
Bug basics are covered along with essential gear, productive
patterns, practical fishing techniques and other B.S. stories......and of
course a few fish pics!
this presentation is mainly for
a fly-tying & fly-fishing audience who desires to learn more about MIDGE -
or small fly fly-fishing.
The Private Spring Creek Waters of
travel with Glenn and
Wayne as we introduce you to the precious Spring Creek venues found in
north western Ohio. Your trip begins in the historical
Castalia, Ohio on the banks of the famous Cold Creek which bubbles from
beneath the earth's surface. As you travel downstream you will make
stops at the prestigious Castalia Club, the Ohio State Fish Hatchery, OI's
Millsite Farms (which has been sold) and finally the Sunnybrook Trout Club. Each stop
will detail the beauty of this region and detail the fishing clubs which
have evolved over time. Whether it's the steeped traditions of
the Castalia Club; the Blue Holes & steelhead of the Fish Hatchery;
the (once) unique blend of corporate & natural feel of Millsite or the
realism of Sunnybrook - something is sure to capture your attention.
The final stop will be RockWell Springs Trout Club where you will see yet
another water source and enjoy the beauty of the tree guarded property. Each stop's history,
layout, people and fish will be part of your journey.
Target audience- this presentation is for anyone
who desires to learn more about the region and it's historic fly-fishing venues.
Each club is outlined including how non-members can join or simply visit as
A View of Crooked Island, Bahamas and the
travel with Glenn and Wayne and
visit the virtually uninhabited island of Crooked Island in the Bahamas.
Armed with 9wt's, suntan lotion, sunglasses and absolutely no
experience on saltwater we were guided by our dear friend Chris Helm
(on several trips before he passed in 2014) Our goal of this presentation is twofold.
One, to memorialize Chris Helm's beloved interest in saltwater fly-fishing
and the people of Crooked Island. Second, to introduce you to the world of saltwater
fly fishing in general, including discussing the
elements, the quarry, the gear & clothing, and of course the people.
Their way of
life and love of the ocean will surely captivate you.
this presentation is VERY fly-fishing related and is basically a
"destination" presentation for those wishing to learn more about the
small, seemingly primitive, out island and
it's wonderful people and fishing opportunities.
