Let’s face it. Your week with Green Mountain Fly Fishing Camps could very well be the best week of of the year, and you want to make the most of it with plenty of fun and fish!
Here’s a few things that will help make that happen…
Casting, Casting, Casting! – A large part of your success is directly related to how well you can cast a fly. You don’t always have to make long casts, but accuracy and consistency are tremendously helpful. Practice makes perfect, so don’t skimp on that prior to camp!
Know some Knots – If you are comfortable with just a couple simple knots, you will spend far more time fishing, and far less time fumbling with knots. An improved clinch knot and double surgeon are 2 knots that will change your life if you can tie them quickly and properly, so grab some fishing line and get crackin’!
Dress for Success – There’s a saying in Vermont that goes, “If you don’t like the weather, wait 5 minutes.” With that said, bring rain gear, plenty of dry socks and check the forecast before you head up to camp!
Know your Approach – How you approach the trout stream will make or break your fishing success. Check out our blog post, “Trout Stream Approach” to pick up a couple pointers on this topic.
Ask & Listen – Our staff of counselors have years of combined fishing knowledge that they love to share with our campers! Don’t be shy at camp. Ask questions and you’ll be amazed at how much you learn!
