Looking forward to seeing you there! 

For our September Zoomting we will hear from Devin Olsen. 

Devin’s book, Tactical Fly Fishing: Lessons Learned from Competition for All Anglers, and videos are regarded by many to be among the best when it comes to learning how to use European nymphing techniques for trout fishing in rivers… and for catching more fish. 

Devin started fly fishing in Yellowstone at age 9. Within a couple of years, it became an addiction he could not shake, and he begged for rides to local streams until he could drive. He started competing at age 19 and made Fly Fishing Team USA in 2006 when he was 21 years old. He has competed in 11 consecutive World Fly Fishing Championships. He has earned a bronze individual medal and silver and bronze team medals from these championships and numerous medals from competitions in the United States. 

Away from competitive fishing he holds a bachelor’s degree in Ecology and a master’s degree in fisheries science. He worked as a fisheries biologist for several years before starting his company Tactical Fly Fisher. 

So please join us for the Zoom presentation. It’s easy to join a Zoom meeting: Just click and watch.
