Saltwater Fly Fishing Basics Seminar at Orvis of Madison

     Earlier this week I had the chance to attend a free fly fishing seminar at Orvis of Madison.  This seminar was billed as an introduction to the basics of saltwater fly fishing.  Specifically it was about the rigging and pursuit of bonefish, permit, and tarpon.  The speaker for this event was Mike Goeser an employee of Orvis and a professional Alaskan fly fishing guide.  Mike is a well traveled angler and has made many trips to the salt.  His approach was refreshing because he explained how to set realistic goals and was honest with his triumphs and his failures.
     Mike's seminar was well laid out and covered everything an aspiring saltwater angler would need to know to have success.  He covered basic rigging, casting, and line management.  We were even given advice on the top travel destinations to catch each species of fish.  I learned a lot and would like to thank Mike and the crew at Orvis of Madison for hosting this free event.
     Tight Lines.
