Flyfishing Lakes
Jeff Perin, The Fly Fishers Place

Bonus: DIY Alaska with Rick Newton

Thursday, March 12, 7 p.m.

Jeff Perin of Fly Fisher's Place in Sisters

Jeff Perin, owner of The Fly Fishers Place in Sisters, will take us through the ins and outs of flyfishing stillwaters in our neighborhood and beyond. Jeff guides on many of the waters that we feature on our yearly outing list, so his insights should at least make us a bit more productive when we hit the water.

Jeff has spent his life in pursuit of fish, falling in love with trout as a kid on a central Oregon lake. That led to working in the business as a teenager and his purchasing a fly shop and guide service when he was just 22. Teaching and guiding have kept him busy for almost 30 years and helping clients improve their skills and catching fish is what it’s all about for him.

Patagonia and Belize are regular destinations for Jeff, but he has fished all over the world including Kamchatka, Christmas Island and his favorite, the South Island of New Zealand

DIY Alaska

As an added bonus this month, we will also have with us Rick Newton of Rainland Flycasters in Astoria. Rick will lead off the evening with a short presentation on putting together an inexpensive trip to Alaska, a concept that should appeal to many of us.
