Fly Fishing Traditions Guiding Services
FFT Guided Fishing Trips on the Yuba River
A guided fishing trip should be more than counting the number of fish caught. It is my job to help you become a more knowledgeable and skilled fly fisher. I will tailor each guided trip to your style, your preferences and your needs. I will share my knowledge of the gear, fishing techniques, bugs and flies and let you know what “bug” I’m tying on and why. Hiring me as your guide is about being well taken care of, enjoying the day, and always learning new techniques, tricks of the trade and learning about the entomology and the bugs that live in my home river.
Team up with me for a day or two to get the help you need to become a more knowledgeable and skilled fly fisher.
