January 7, 2020 General Meeting
Lance Gray speaking on “Fishing Sinking Lines in Still Water.”
In the next three months or more there will be times when all our moving waters will be blown out or just plain tough to fish. That’s when we’ll all be glad that we have many lakes to fish like Oroville, Collins, Bullards Bar, Scott’s Flat, Rollins, Camp Far West, Folsom, LOP, Wildwood, and Englebright.
"Fishing Sinking Lines in Stillwater" Is a presentation about the when, why and how of fishing sinking lines in still water. Lance will cover the countdown method, dragging (trolling) and straight line tactics. He'll focus on the equipment, picking the right tactic and line and then showing club members the why during the presentation. It’s a very educational presentation focusing on making the club fly fisher a better stillwater angler.
Lance and his wife Kristen have more than 50 years experience in fly fishing. Among other endeavors, in 2003 they launched Lance Gray & Company, a full-service outfitter offering guided trips, fly-fishing schools, workshops and a travel agency. Lance conducts presentations at fly clubs and outdoor shows and supports local groups like Cub Scouts and 4H. He's a signature tier for Solitude Fly Company, pro staff member for
Sage and Rio and is a featured writer, with articles published in Angling Trade Magazine, California Fly Fisher, Fly Fishermen, Sierra Fisherman and Northwest Fly Fishing.
So come on out to our January meeting to hear from an always engaging speaker!
