Fishing the Frying Pan and Surrounding Areas with Hutch Hutchison
Hutch has been professionally involved in the sport of fly fishing for over 35 years. He started in the early 70’s tying flies for local sporting goods stores in NH. In the early 80’s he started his 30+ year guiding career in AK, then stretched it into MN, WI, and CO. Since the early 90’s he has participated in and hosted many fly casting and fly fishing competitions/tournaments around North America. Hutch is also a Federation of Fly Fishers Master Certified Casting Instructor and to date has taught and consulted over 9000 students.
His objective will be to prepare us for our up and coming “Frying Pan” trip in August.
