An angler whom you should meet is Gary Metras (our interview with him here). He catches many fish, and here is one of them.
I am excited that he is willing to share his presentation on winter fly fishing at the Swift River. The link is at the bottom of this post.
There are many friendly anglers who know the Swift. They share their knowledge, and our Swift River overviews here, here and here also can help you. All that, and easy access, make the Swift a great DIY river. No guide needed.
Gary recently presented at the TU Millers Chapter. He emailed over his presentation and is willing to share it with the fly fishing community.
It is full of great advice and recommended fly patterns. It represents decades of assiduous angling and research, and so, we all need to applaud him.
Thank you, Gary, for your generosity! Thank you, Will, for asking Gary!
