We carry affordable fly fishing equipment, do not let the Dark Web scare you into thinking this sport is way to expensive, We can fit any budget!!!
We have water for 2019! after several winter storms, The Sierra Nevada has a huge snowpack, this means the rivers of California will have cold water all season, this is great news for fisherman and even better for the FISH! Remember the California trout season opens the last Saturday in April, Stock up now and be ready for fantastic fishing all season!
After my lesson with Jamie at Heather Farms park in Walnut Creek, CA, I realized I had been doing it all wrong for almost a year
