Many find lake fishing with a fly to be mysterious and intimidating. In this one-day course, we will help you unlock their secrets and expand your fly-fishing horizons. Starting with the ecosystem we will talk about trout's food sources in Yellowstone's lakes. Then we will move on to discuss reading the water, presentation, fly choices and other skills to improve your fishing experience. Finally, putting it all together, we will look at the lake, the fish, and the ecosystem and expand our appreciation for some of the most beautiful placing in the park.
