East of Redding Fly Fishing: Klamath/Sacramento Rivers and Hat Creek
Guest Speaker: Tim Fox
Tim Fox grew up in Northern California, fishing all the rivers, lakes and streams. He started commercially tying flies for Powell Fly Shop in Chico at the age of 14 and worked their retail shop from 1988 to 1995. He then left for a new shop being built in Fairfield. It was called the California Fly Shop (before the currently called shop of said name even existed), which he helped start from the ground up.
At the end of 1996, he moved to Redding and started working at The Fly Shop in January of 1997. During all this time, Tim was guiding, teaching schools and tying commercially and also creating fly patterns for royalty money. Tim was managing Kiene's Fly Shop in Sacramento, but was still living in Redding, this was too much for a responsible father to be away from wife and children so when Kienes merged with American, it was a good time to step out of the way and be with the family full time.
Tim now makes a living guiding both fly fishing (most northern CA rivers and streams) and hunting and working on the family ranch, and also working on his online store to sell his awesome fly patterns!
Tim's presentation will be on the waters he guides in Northern California for each season, and the flies he ties and uses, and the reasoning behind his fly choices. This promises to be an encyclopedic presentation for those who fish Northern California, so bring a notepad and pencil and be prepared to be schooled!
