Adventure Bound on the Fly Hosts March 25

   The guides at Adventure Bound on the Fly are excited to offer decades of experience of guiding and fishing on the Steelhead waters around the Ellicottville, NY area. After many requests through the 2016 season they have decided to have a one-day Steelhead school on our home water Cattaraugus Creek, March 25th from 9-4. During the day they’ll cover a wide array of techniques including reading the water, how to find steelhead during different seasons, techniques to catch steelhead based on water temperature, flow and clarity. Most of the day will be spent on the water with demonstrations from the shop instructors then the guides will help you learn the techniques demonstrated.
   Space is limited to 6 students and $199 each, so please reserve your spot in advance. Shore lunch will be provided along with water and coffee. Rods and Equipment will be provided for use. Wader rentals are available with advance reservation.
