HWY 395 - California’s Trout Highway
Hwy 395 courses through some of the most diverse and spectacular scenery in the west. As you travel north from Mohave, the Sierra appear to the West and present a dramatic tableau for the next four hundred miles. It not only provides spectacular scenery but great fishing as well.
In his presentation “Hwy 395 – California’s Trout Highway”, Greg Vinci takes us on a tour of Hwy 395’s best trout waters, beginning at the Truckee River with stops along the way, including the East & West Carson rivers, the East & West Walker Rivers, and Alger Lakes (Golden Trout).
Greg’s presentation includes gorgeous photos of streams, rivers, spring creeks and stillwaters, along with fishing strategies, tactics, and flies to use.
Greg is a native Californian. His name is known throughout the industry and has developed a number of fly fishing tackle product lines on a consultancy basis for clients. He is a highly respected fly tyer who has collaborated with Umpqua Feather Merchants, one of the fly tackle industry’s most prominent fly manufacturers. Greg has developed fly patterns that can be found in many fly shops around the country. He is also authored the bestselling book “Fly Fisher’s Guide to California.” His day job is that of Social Media Director at Kiene’s Fly Shop in Sacramento.
Would you like to be a 3rd Wednesday Speaker ???
Our programs chairperson Tim Huckaby says:
We have so much talent and expertise in the club that we have decided to augment our “normal” club meeting and presentation (every 1st Monday of the month) with a mostly club member presentation on the 3rd Wednesday of each month this year. Those of you that have joined the virtual club meetings you know we have had a lot of success. We sure have learned a lot and been entertained by some pillars of the fly fishing industry. Honestly, it has been easier for me to recruit speakers to do virtual presentations because I don’t take them out of their day jobs for stretches of travel to San Diego. We’ll continue our “normal” first Monday of the month meetings with “big name” speakers, virtually, until we can finally meet in person as a club again….which is not looking like any time soon. We have quite the lineup scheduled already for 2021. It’s not the same as meeting in person. I get that. I miss meeting in person too. But, the virtual thing is gonna’ have to do for while until the world gets ahead of the pandemic.
So…I’m on the hunt for you experts in the club that would be willing to do a virtual presentation and/or virtual Q&A for us on a 3rd Wednesday this year. Please contact me by email, firstname.lastname@example.org or my cell, 619-990-9200 to discuss. Don’t be surprised if I find you with a little help from other club members and proactively reach out to you for the ask.
