JOIN THE FEDERATION OF FLY FISHERS

Where can I fly fish around here? Who can I fish with? What do I need? What do I do?  In 2009, Our Fishing Manager Dan Davala founded Tidal Potomac Fly Rodders to help answer these questions once and for all.  Tidal Potomac Fly Rodders is a charter club of the FFF with a focus on our Nation’s River and its tributaries.  Through this club, we’ve built an awareness and excitement for this world class fishery, and the year round fly fishing opportunities it offers.  Come in today and speak with Dan and other TPFR members to find out more about the FFF, what we are doing, and how you can get involved.

FALL STRIPERS IN THE TIDAL POTOMAC RIVER

It’s that time of year again!  Every fall when the water temperature drops in the Tidal Potomac River, thousands of baitfish move out of the tributaries and head for deeper water.  Most of them never make it!   BIG HUNGRY STRIPERS lie in wait and ambush them on the way out, and those in the know are at the right place at the right time swinging a Clouser through the melee.  This is your opportunity to target Stripers over 30” on the fly, from shore, within city limits!  Come in today for a presentation on the conditions, flies, locations, and techniques necessary to get in on some of the best Tidal Potomac fly fishing of the year!

2:00 PM
THE BIG TWO-HANDED RIVER

Orvis in Arlington has been instrumental in pioneering the use of two-handed rods and Spey Casting techniques on the Tidal Potomac River.  Come in today for a free seminar on Spey and Switch rods, and learn why they are powerful tools for unlocking many of the fishing opportunities we have on this big river.  Find out the differences in casting styles, and the pros and cons of many of the different lines available for these outfits.  Upcoming on the water Spey Casting Clinics will be announced.
