5 Dot Clinic
Flea Flicker made an excellent post about the 5 Dot Stillwater Clinic put on by Doug Ouellette. If you have not read it look for it under general fly fishing and do your self a favor and read it.
From my point of view the
The Five Dot Stillwater clinic last Saturday and Sunday with Doug was one of the best fishing / learning experiences for me because it affirmed many things I already knew and use but helped me think about them in a new way. It also added new things and got me to think outside the box. The clinic got me to reflect on the way I handle fish, tie knots, set up my leaders, what I do to set my self up to fish the the wind, to subtle changes in my retrieve that move me beyond hand twist retrieve. Doug used practical stillwater tactics that add up tomake a difference. I put some of these strategies to the test on the last day Sunday and managed to catch a large number of quality fish, I had the retrieve dialed and I could feel the fish lick the fly.
