    I attended a Dickson school on the Sky today - boy was it cool. After trying it own my own, this class sure provided a lot of "ah ha" moments. Then I got lucky and hooked into an 8-10 lb hen during the lunch break - what a day. I highly recommend signing up. Good luck. WPS

    Way to go on that chromer! I was watching when you set the hook. It seemed that Dennis pulled together a lot of steelheading 'fragments' that I was familiar with and set them into a very logical and useable system. And the Yancey line is just SWEET! Anyone out there considering a new multi-tip set up should at least check it out.

    I have been in his school and gone on several trips with dennis. He gives a lot of information that is easy to use and understand. i would recommend his classes and/or a trip. Check him out at www.flyfishsteelhead.com. :thumb

    I went on Dennis' Sauk School last year and learned a tremendous amount on steelhead behavior, how to read water, and how to present a fly most effectively. I think his key strength is his ability to translate years of experience and knowledge into practical, easy-to-understand techniques that a novice can assimilate fairly quickly. Prior to this class, I never felt truly confident in what I was doing, and the results spoke for themselves...zilch. After the class, I did fairly well, catching fish in the Sauk, Skykomish, and Snoqualmie. His class definitely shortened the learning curve by a year or so. I highly recommend taking one of his schools if you want to learn how to catch steelhead consistently.

    Cheers!
