Monthly Meeting: Jack Trout Takes Us Fishing in Cuba in Search of a “Bay of Pigs” , Thursday, September 28th at 7pm

Our September speaker is Jack Trout.   Jack Trout, owner and guide, started fishing Northern California streams and rivers as a youngster, with his father, a fishing guide on the Feather River in the little town of Portola, California.  For over 16 years Jack has guided and outfitted in the Mt Shasta area and as far away places as Chile, Argentina and Belize.

His passions are people and teaching fly fishing.  Jack is always enthusiastic with his clients and is very good at listening to and answering questions. He willingly shares his knowledge and is always empathetic to individual needs. For the novice, veteran, or something in between, Jack’s keen sense and intuitive nature provide a customized experience. Jack knows the holes that hold the quality wild trout our local waters are so famous for as well as in other countries.

Come join us at the monthly meeting, Thursday, September 28th at 7:00pm.  Details
