Dave Whitlock invited me to spend time with him learning how to correctly tie his flies so that I could pass that knowledge on to others after he was gone. What an honor he bestowed upon me! This school is one way for me to help ensure that folks continue to learn about Dave's fabulous flies.
The Complete NearNuff School offers a hands-on experience that aims to provide participants with the skills to expertly tie and fish Dave Whitlock's famous NearNuff Sculpin and NearNuff Crayfish patterns.
You will learn how and why Dave tied these flies and what materials he used. We will delve into the realm of stream-bottom fish and crustaceans … focusing on the main species that these flies imitate: darters, mad toms, sculpins, stone cats and crayfish. Insights into the characteristics and habitats of these food forms will help with your understanding of when and where the NearNuff Sculpin and Crayfish fly patterns can be most effectively fished.
