Charlie Robinton is our guest speaker and will be re-capping
the Delta bass fish out in August and give a talk about fly
fishing for largemouth bass in the California Delta, specifically
from small craft such as a float tube, pontoon boat or kayak.
He will share his knowledge of flies, techniques, access points
and seasonal variations, as well as tips and tricks he has learned
from his experience fishing this untapped and exciting fly fishing
He has been the Fishing Manager at the Roseville Orvis store
since Nov, 2014. A lifetime angler and fly fisherman, Charlie
grew up in the Bay Area fishing for largemouth bass in local
lakes and trout in the Sierras. He began his career in fly fishing
as a guide on the South Fork of the Snake River in Idaho, and
since then his passion for instruction and fly fishing education
has grown, taking him to the Pacific Northwest and back home
to California. Charlie loves to travel and fish for just about
anything, but he especially enjoys pursuing warmwater predators
like largemouth bass, stripers, pike and more with a fly rod.
Lots of activity coming up in the next few months:
Lee kicks off his annual rod building class with signups
at the October 8th meeting. What a great opportunity
to get a custom rod at a great price and with only a modest
amount of sweat equity. And October 22 marks the first day
of the Upper Sacramento River fishout. Ron Rabun, retired
Upper Sac guide, will be giving an in depth clinic on Saturday,
October 24. So if you can only make the weekend there you
won’t miss it. We have a lot of experienced anglers on this
trip, and novices, or people new to that river, will get
lots of help!

“They say you forget your troubles on a trout stream, but that’s
not quite it. What happens is that you begin to see where your
troubles fit into the grand scheme of things, and suddenly they’re
just not such a big deal anymore.” ― John Gierach
