Fishing & Tying Soft Hackle Wet Flies with Michael Lohman
March 16 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Soft hackles have been around for over 500 years. They were effective then and, in the opinion of instructor Michael Lohman, even more so now. The reason for his thinking is today we have better equipment, better tying materials and better anglers.
In this presentation we will discuss a bit of history. How to tie them. How to rig them and how to fish them. We will discuss which techniques and flies you will want to use under different fishing situations.
About Michael Lohman
Michael Lohman began fly fishing alongside his father in 1972. Fly fishing quickly became an obsession for Michael as he learned through trial and error (and with the help of many books). Over the years he has developed an incredible background in fly tying and the traditional angling methods of wet fly fishing. He’s also very well versed in nymphing and dry fly fishing and loves to swing soft hackles for trout. Rest assured that Michael can show you patterns and how to catch fish in new and unique ways.
Locally, Michael likes to fish the Pocono and Lehigh Valley Streams. He is particularly fond of the Brodhead Creek in the Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania area. He’s also caught countless bluefish and stripers along the eastern coast of the United States and enjoys saltwater fly fishing tremendously.
Michael has fished in many places for many different species of fish, in fact, including bass, pike, trout, and brook trout in Canada and Newfoundland. Michael has also fished for bonefish and permit in Mexico and several islands in the Bahamas, as well as tarpon in the Florida Keys.
