One-On-One Virtual Skills Sessions are Here

by | Feb 12, 2024 | 0 comments

After months of work and preparation, I’m pleased to announce the launch of Troutbitten One-On-One Virtual Skills Sessions. This latest arm of the Troutbitten Project allows for greater connection with more anglers, readers, listeners and viewers than ever before.

When Covid hit, most of us became comfortable with webcams and Zoom calls. Those virtual meetings became part of our daily lives. And since then, I’ve had anglers from all over the country ask for online tutoring about a variety of topics. Over these informal sessions, we’ve talked a lot about fishing — about reading water, rigging, locating trout, nymphing tactics, dry fly theory, streamer presentations, pattern selection, casting and so much more. I’ve also consulted with with people about becoming a fishing guide, on building a website for a fishing brand, on writing, recording, podcasting and video work.

Each of these sessions was a rewarding experience. I shared things, I learned things, and it was fun.

I’ve decided to make this a permanent part of the Troutbitten Project. I now offer online, one-on-one skills sessions customized to your interests and needs. What do you want to learn? What do you want to talk about?

These one-on-one skills sessions are held in our Troutbitten online studio, where we record the Troutbitten Podcast. You will access it from your desktop browser or a mobile app.

Built For You

As a full-time guide, spending a hundred days with guests each year, I’ve learned what confuses anglers or holds them back. And I can share tactics, efficiencies and philosophies that will absolutely shorten your learning curve.

Whatever you’re into, whatever your direction, I’m happy to share some ideas that will help make your hours on the river more enjoyable.

These sessions are tailored to fit your needs. Visit the One-On-One Sessions page and scroll to the bottom. There, you’ll find a series of questions. Your answers will help me build an outline for our session together.

A Video Record

In the last few months, I’ve worked to upgrade the audio and video capabilities of the Troutbitten studio. Our session will be recorded (for your use only), and afterward, you’ll receive a video of our meeting, along with notes and links to more Troutbitten resources to help you keep learning.

Rates and times are available on the One-One-One Sessions page.

I’m excited to see where this goes. Thank you for your support.

Fish hard, friends.

PODCAST: Critical Nymphing Concepts #6 — Line On the Water — S10, Ep6

PODCAST: Critical Nymphing Concepts #6 — Line On the Water — S10, Ep6

This episode is about tension and slack. It’s about how we manage fly lines and leaders on the water while nymphing. My friend, Austin Dando, joins me to walk through the tight line advantage of keeping line off the water and what happens when we give that up. Fishing greater distances often requires laying line on the water, and how we manage that line, how we plan for it, makes all the difference between a great drift and a poor one . . .

PODCAST: Critical Nymphing Concepts #5 — Weight: The Fundamental Factor — S10, Ep5

Once you leave the water’s surface, weight is necessary for the presentation. Here’s what weights to choose, for nymphing, why and when. You can’t avoid it. Weight is the fundamental factor. Meaning, it’s probably more important than the fly itself. More weight or less is more consequential than what dubbing, feather or ribbing is wound around the hook shank.

We use all types of weight, and there are good reasons for all of these: tungsten beads, split shot and drop shot . . .

STREAMSIDE: MidCurrent Features 1 Million Troutbitten Podcast Downloads (an Interview with Dom)

A few weeks ago, the Troutbitten Podcast crossed the 1 Million downloads milestone. Spencer Durrant, the news editor for Midcurrent and host of the Unhooked Podcast, got in touch to ask if I’d answer a few questions for the occasion.

The Midcurrent publication is part of the glue that binds this industry together, so I was happy to oblige. Answering these questions also got me thinking about where this Troutbitten Project has been and where it’s going.

So as Troutbitten enters the year of its tenth anniversary, here’s a look into one of our favorite branches of this Troutbitten media company and how it became so important to the Troutbitten community . . .

What do you think?

Be part of the Troutbitten community of ideas.
Be helpful. And be nice.
