Digital Slide Programs

I have documented most of my fishing career with a camera, and I can offer a number of audio-visual presentations to fly fishing clubs and other groups. I can also offer a combination of a program with a tying or casting demo, depending on the structure of a club's meetings. If a club has a social hour before their meeting, I can do a tying demo while people are socializing, with the demo connected to the program material.

With reasonable lead time, I can develop a presentation customized to your group's needs. Call or e-mail for details.

Programs Available Now
  • "Fishing Montana's Paradise Valley Spring Creeks"
    I developed this program to provide a complete travel guide to the spring creeks in our area - Nelson's, DePuy's, and Armstrong - in the Yellowstone valley. It includes an overview of the fishing plus information on timing of hatches, weather considerations, and other trip planning information.
  • A Montanan's Guide to the Spring Creeks
    Since the Paradise Valley spring creeks are open all year and are not affected by runoff, they provide an alternative to anglers in the region when other waters are not fishable. This program was developed for fishing groups around the state, providing information to local (and semi-local) anglers on off-season hatches and fishing on these fisheries.
  • Advanced Spring Creek (and Tailwater) Tactics
    This program takes a step beyond the basics of spring creek angling, providing more detailed information on tackle and leaders, sight fishing methods, reading riseforms, hatches and fly selection, and presentation techniques.
  • Lessons from the Spring Creeks
    This program is an introduction to spring creek fishing for a more general audience, with less technical information and more scenic images and fish shots. This program is ideal for banquets or holiday meetings, when non-anglers may make up a good part of the audience.
  • Off Season Fishing in Yellowstone Country
    This program covers fishing in the Livingston/Bozeman area in the off season, with an emphasis on the spring (pre-run-off) period. The program includes trip planning information, as well as details on hatches and fishing techniques for the Yellowstone River, lower Madison River, area spring creeks (Nelson's, DePuy's, and O'Hair's), and private lakes.
