Northern California Steelhead
Guest Speakers: Anthony Carruesco and Chris King
This month, we are fortunate to be featuring two speakers, both of whom are very knowledgeable about their subject, and come highly recommended. Be prepared to take notes, as this is a rare opportunity to be double-teamed by steelhead experts!
Anthony found a passion for fly fishing at a young age. He followed that passion to the foothills of gold country and beyond to the vast tundras of Alaska and finally back home to Northern California, where he has turned his passion into a career. Growing up in competitive sports and being a former collegiate athlete, his drive to persevere and always find his clients fish is apparent on the water. A natural leader, Anthony has put together a group of like-minded guides with superior work ethics that want nothing more than to see their clients have a great time and be successful on the water. His confidence and positive demeanor is infectious, and a trip with him is certain to make for some of his clients most memorable vacations. When he is not guiding you'll find him chasing the white ball on manicured fairways or chasing anadromous fish on the coastline.
Over the past 25 years, Chris has become a living legend in the Fly Fishing world. From and industry rep to guiding and instructing on 3 different continents, Chris' passion for Fly Fishing has taken him around the world. Chris is a Master Certified casting instructor, two handed (Spey) certified casting instructor and an Emeritus member of the board of governors. Chris has been guiding professionally since 1995 and has established a cult like following of clients. Simply put, Chris is a wizard with a fly rod and has a unique and very effective way of teaching his world class skills to others. All of this accompanied with his witty personality makes a day on the water with him one you will not soon forget.
They will be speaking about Northern California Steelhead, from Trinity and Klamath, Lower Sac and Feather to big Coastal (winter Steelhead), and the tactics and techniques and the seasons in which we fish for steehead.
