Fall is a great time to be a trout fisherman! Cooler temperatures can make for some of the most enjoyable fishing of the year, and this energetic and entertaining program will give you the insights you need to get the most from your time on the water. We will start with a look at how the arrival of fall affects fish and insect behavior. Then we will turn our attention to trip planning, fly choice, tactics, and more (including strategies for dealing with those pesky fall leaves!). Special emphasis will be given to finding brown trout in the Chattahoochee tailwater during this class.
