In June we have yet another great program from another speaker who I don't think we've met before...Hogan Brown. Hogan will be presenting his program "Northern CA Largemouth Bass Fishing, A Practical Approach"
Hogan began fly fishing from an early age virtually growing up on the banks of the North Fork and Lower Yuba rivers. He began hitch hiking the 5 miles from his house to the Lower Yuba River with a fly rod in hand in Junior High school.
He has chased trout and steelhead in California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming and Saskatchewan, British Columbia, and Alberta provinces in Canada.
Far from being a trout snob, Hogan has spent considerable time fishing for largemouth and smallmouth bass and readily admits to enjoying catching carp and catfish on a fly!
Hogan has become one of the leading innovators in warm water fly fishing in Northern California. Just as passionate about fly tying, Hogan has developed a unique approach to tying bass, carp, steelhead, and trout flies with the sierra foothills and the CA central valley as his testing ground. Hogan blends many different styles with his own unique approach to create innovative flies for catching bass, carp, steelhead nd trout.
Hogan is a contract tier for Idylwildw Fly Co. and has over 24 patterns out through them.
Hogan began guilding the North Fork and Lower Yuba Rivers when he graduated from high school and eventually relocated to Chico to attend Chico State. He is a 2005 graduate of Chico State with a degree in Social Science and a minor in Psychology. After that, he graduated from National University in 2006 with a single subject teaching credential and a Masters in Education. Residing in Chico, after 10 years of full time guiding he now teaches at Hamilton Union High School and guides the Lower Yuba River, Lower Sacramento River, Trinity River and Feather River along with various bass and carp water and small streams and rivers outside of Chico during the summer and on weekends.
Hogan is also a published author with articles appearing in both Northwest Fly Fishing and Southwest Fly Fishing Magazine along with Saltwater Fly Fishing Magazine.
He is also a FFF certified casting instructor.
Don't miss this. It is sure to be a great program.
