Please join us on Tuesday May 21, 2013 for our general meeting. The meeting will feature Jon Baiocchi, owner of Baiocchi's Troutfitters.
John will be discussing fly fishing Eagle Lake.
Jon's been fly fishing and tying flies since 1972 and is a California Licensed fly fishing guide, published author, educator, innovative tier, and public speaker-giving fly fishing presentations to fly fishing clubs and expos across the state of California. His Dad, Bob Baiocchi, was inducted into the Federation of Fly Fishers Hall of Fame in 1999 and was a big part in helping Jon hone his fly fishing skills at an early age. In 1979 Jon began snowboarding and was one of the pioneers of the sport competing professionally, starring in major films, and involved with research and development for clothing and board manufacturers. Jon now owns and operates Baiocchi's Troutfitters guide service In Northern California where he has a reputation as a hard working guide that's been trained by some of fly fishing's best known anglers. His locations for guiding include Lake Davis, the Wild & Scenic Middle Fork Feather River, Frenchman's Reservoir, Eagle Lake, the North Fork Yuba River, Lake Almanor, The Big/Little Truckee Rivers, and many secluded creeks in Eastern Plumas Co. Jon's philosophy on fly fishing is to keep it simple, be confident in your presentation, and have fun! His favorite game is stalking and sight fishing to large trout in shallow water whether it is a river or a stillwater.
