Michael Gorman, a professional guide of more than 30 years helps us make the most of every stillwater fishing outing - even those ego-bruising days when the fish seem to reject everything. Join us to learn Michaels strategies, techniques and secrets.
Nymphing to Catch More Fish
Michael Gorman, a professional and savvy guide, has vast knowledge on one of the most effective methods of catching fish – nymphing. His well-tested techniques are effective on both trout and steelhead. Join us to pick Michael’s brain on all things nymphing.
He owned and operated his own retail fly fishing shop in Corvallis, OR for many years, also being the head fishing guide. Michael continues, still, as an Oregon fishing guide throughout the calendar year, in addition to teaching classes at Oregon State University, where he has done so since 1987. For more than 25 years he taught credit fly fishing classes at OSU.
As a professional fly fishing guide throughout the calendar year, Michael focuses his efforts on McKenzie River trout and selected stillwaters spring and summer, summer and fall steelhead on southern Oregon's Rogue River, and winter steelhead on the central and north coast.
In addition to authoring Effective Stillwater Fly Fishing, An Analytical Approach to Help You Catch More Fish (Stackpole Books), he also wrote Steelhead Fly Angling, Guerilla Fly Rod Tactics (Frank Amato Books). Currently Michael is finishing up a third book on nymph fishing.
