Learn fly tying & streamer fishing on the fabled Esopus Creek Autumn on the Esopus Creek offers anglers with a unique opportunity to fish for large brown trout making their way upstream from the Ashokan Reservoir to spawn in the upper reaches of the watershed. Large trout want more substantial meals than the traditional dry and wet flies fished during the warmer months... it's streamer season! Coincidentally, the first fly most people learn to tie is the Wolly Bugger, a perfect fly for catching big trout.

Join Esopus Creel during a prime-time weekend and learn the basics of fly tying. You'll get your own Orvis Fly Tying Kit and a morning of instruction. Then head to the river with flies tied-by- you and learn the casts and presentations of streamer fishing. The kit and the memories are yours to keep.
