Forks of the Delaware Chapter of Trout Unlimited Presents “Pocket Water Strategies” with Anita Coulton, Guide with Cross Current Outfitters, March 9th

EASTON, PA – The Forks of the Delaware Chapter of Trout Unlimited is please to host two-time NJ Flyfisherman of the Year Anita Coulton from Cross Current Guide Service & Outfitter as she presents her program, “Pocket Water Strategies.” Anita will make her presentation on Saturday, March 9th at the Stockertown Rod and Gun Club, 206 Lefevre Road Stockertown, PA. Doors open at 9:00 AM and program starts at 10 AM.. This event is free and open to the public.


We all have our individual approaches to pocket water. Come out and learn some tips and techniques from Anita for upping your catch rate. She’ll discuss:

  • Why fish hold in pocket water,
  • How to read water and know where fish are,
  • Understanding how depth and current act on different techniques,
  • How to effectively present small flies in fast moving water, and
  • Positioning/Landing fish.


Anita’s journey with a fly rod began at age three when her father, an avid outdoorsman, sat her on the bank with an old Zebco rod. A deep love for the outdoors was born, and more importantly, a passion to pursue anything that could be caught with a fishing rod. Her extensive fly-fishing experience spans nearly 30 years, and she is comfortable in both fresh and saltwater.


A former competitive angler, Anita has fished alongside some of the World’s best. She is a two-time NJ Flyfisherman of the Year (2017 and 2020). Anita is also a graduate of Reel Women Guide School, based in Montana. She is proud to be an Orvis-Endorsed Guide with Cross Current Guide Service & Outfitters, and in season you can find her navigating her Clackacraft on the Upper Delaware River, chasing some of the toughest wild brown trout around. In addition to guiding, Anita has been involved with Casting for Recovery for over 10 years. She is also an avid writer and contributor to publications such as Dun Magazine and Fly Fisherman.


So, mark your calendar and come out to this open and free event.
