May's speaker to cover the Lower Sac

Brian Bommarito of the Redding Fly Shop will cover fishing the Lower Sac at the May 8th general membership meeting. Brian has been guiding for The Fly Shop for a number of years. Here's a self introduction.

"I’m Brian Bommarito, a full-time, professional guide for The Fly Shop in Redding, CA.  Fishing, guiding and working on new fly patterns is about all I do these days.  I’ve been fishing most of the waters around Mt Shasta since the 90′s and guiding my guests to the finest fly fishing northern California has to offer since 2005.

I tied my first flies at 14 and learned to fly fish on the fabled rivers of northern Michigan like the Au Gres, Betsie, Manistee and Au Sable.  Fast forward a bit…and a 20+ year Navy career allowed me to fish for numerous exotic species all over the globe.  (ask me about a 62 bonefish day in Diego Garcia!)  After all the globetrotting, we’re officially tired of moving so my family and I have finally decided to settle down and call Redding “home”.

I love to teach and I’m proud to say  that I’m an FFF Certified Casting Instructor (CCI) who welcomes beginners and I do my best to tailor an instructional and productive day for all my guests no matter their skill level.  When not guiding, you’ll likely find me tying some goofy, new, can’t-miss fly pattern or hiking well out of cell range into the Pit river canyon.

My business is guiding (so yes, there will be a bit of self-serving spam here)but, this blog is just as much about the love of the sport.  I hope to focus many future posts on our pursuit of the wild trout and steelhead of northern California, the places they take us, the tactics, casting, conservation, fly tying and the ever-popular ‘more’."

The meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 8th at 7:30pm at the John R. Williams School, 2450 Meadow Avenue, Stockton. The meeting is open to the public.
