Scott Vaughn

 

Ed Wahl - high country fly fishing guru and mentor

    Hello all, my name is Scott Vaughn and I am addicted to fly fishing. I have been a member of Granite Bay Flycasters since 2008, and I am happy to share my experiences. One of my favorite things to do is leave the main road and head off on to the unbeaten trail and explore our wilderness in search of fish not seen often by others. My story is pretty simple, when I picked up my first fly rod in 2007, Joe Shirshac (formerly with Kiene’s) told me to go east young man and get off the road. He pointed me in the direction of the Silver Fork up off Hwy 50. He told me to park next to the water and start wading upstream deep into the mountain and to keep going till the people disappeared and nature was your only company. After my firstday of fly fishing catching wild rainbows on dry flies, I knew where I belonged, surrounded by trees and water.

    Since that day I have spent many days hiking into the woods to locate my quarry. With the help of my dear friends Scott Higashi and Ed Wahl, my passion for getting away from civilization and exploring the hills grew. Nothing is better than sitting on a quiet piece of water enjoying Mother Nature and catching fish with only those that are willing to put in the work to get there. And my friends took me to places I never would have gone on my own and seen sights I never knew existed. So I plan to show you where I like to go, how to get there, what you should take and what to expect. In the summertime, nothing beats heading to 6,000 plus feet to get away from the valley heat and enjoy the nice clean mountain air.

    I hope you enjoy where I am going to take you!

 

 


Leader's Line

   “For what is a man what has he got, if not himself then he has not. To say the things he truly feels, and not the words of one who kneels. The record shows I took the blows and did it my way.”

 

    I want to thank the membership for putting up with my year as President. I tried to make it fun, after all we are a fishing club not a government agency. And based on what the members have said to me the last couple of months, I think I achieved that. Thank you to the Board of Directors for the year of service with me.

 

    Hope to see you all at the Annual Picnic June 12th -15th. Saturday June 13th is the One Fly Tournament at Fuller Lake and the tri-tip and chicken picnic lunchis at 1:30pm.

 

Once again, Thank You.

Tony Fabian

This Month

 

"[Once a friend of mine spent all afternoon - a good four hours - trying for a nice-sized brown that he never did catch. Later I said, "That was a smart fish," and he said "Yeah, I was gonna kill 'im and eat 'im just to get the S.O.B. out of the gene pool]"
