Country Pleasures is pleased to announce the initial line-up for Saturday Seminars for 2015. We believe this is the best lineup ever. Each Saturday at 10:00 a.m. we host a free seminar on a fly fishing topic. We hope you can come and participate.

Seminars are scheduled as follows:


January 17 - Bow River Guide Patterns
Jeff Thomson and Kevin Peterson will show their favorite patterns for the
Bow. Comprehensive seminar outlining how, when, and where to fish
these patterns.

Improve your presentation skills on Lakes. New tips and techniques for
Stillwaters as well as the equipment set up for locating large fish. He will
also tie a few new patterns that will hook you up to some great fish.
Interactive seminar for beginners to advanced anglers.

January 31 - Streamer Fishing
We have a ton of people come into the shop and say they don’t really
get streamer fishing and don’t do well at it. This seminar, presented by
Mike Gifford, will show you how to do it properly. Techniques, gear, and
flies for wade or drift fishing.

February 7 - Missouri River Primer
The Missouri River offers some great fishing within a fairly reasonable
distance as an alternative to our fisheries. Blair Yerxa spends a lot of
time on the “Mo”. Blair will outline seasons, flies, gear, times to go,
everything you need to know to fish the Mo.

February 14 - Family Day Weekend- No Seminar

February 21 - Spey Explained
