Trout feed predominantly sub-surface. For this reason, there is no other technique comparable to nymphing that will have a greater impact on an angler’s success rate. Blue Quill Angler guide, instructor, and author, Pat Dorsey, has been perfecting the art of nymph fishing for over 25 years. His “office” is the South Platte River and is, without a doubt, one of the best training grounds on which an angler can learn. The Advanced Nymphing 402 class is an opportunity to learn from one of the best; it is a technique that will set you apart from the rest of the fly fishing community.
The course begins with a discussion on proper rigging for tandem nymph fishing as well as the thoughts behind making adjustments. During the discussion, the student learns how to construct a special yarn indicator that provides him with the advantage of easy adjustment and sensitivity to strike detection. The student also learns how to take advantage of moldable soft weight that can perfect the presentation with micro adjustments not available from shot alone.
After the discussion, the class moves to the river where students receive one-on-one instruction from Pat Dorsey plus a wealth of information concerning reading the water, trout behavior, presentation, hook setting, playing, landing and safely releasing fish. Count on this class to take years off your learning curve and place you on the road to very successful nymph fishing!
The class is taught on the private waters of the North Fork Guest Ranch which is hosts to a multitude of powerful trophy trout. Imagine…fishing some of the most productive water in the Rocky Mountains with an award winning guide, instructor and author by your side. Reserve your spot today!

I was recently out in Colorado and had the opportunity to take one of Pat Dorsey's winter classes. It was a great experience. It was very educational and a great deal of fun. Our class was made up of several different levels of fly-fishermen from an absolute beginner to a well-experienced fly-fisherman. Pat provided teaching to all of us and made sure we had a great experience on the river. It was by far one of the best fishing experiences I have ever had as I learned a great deal about tactical fly-fishing and also caught some great trout. I would recommend this class to any level fly-fisherman as it is a day you won't soon forget. Pat is not only a super-skilled fly-fisherman but is also a really great guy. I cannot say enough good things about the experience. JM — Charlotte, NC
