Matt Zawacki - Fishabout - Flyfishing Loreto Mexico
Matt joined Flycasters in the early 2000's and quickly became active in the club starting with chairing the "Evening Rise" (a monthly fly tying / social get together in the club room) and was eventually voted in as club president for 2008. Like many flyfisherman Matt had (and still has) a fondness for fly fishing for trout in both streams and rivers and on still water and took advantage of the clubs casting lessons to become a better trout flyfisherman. Along the way, again like many club members, Matt attended many club seminars and fishouts to learn how to fly fish for surf perch, striped bass and more. After seeing trip pictures and hearing tales from other club members about fly fishing at Loreto Mexico, in 2006 Matt and Jim Knecht went to Loreto for 3 days to check it out. Matt fell in love with fly fishing in the Sea of Cortez and has been back every summer since. In 2007 Matt began fly fishing at Loreto as a client with Fishabout International and in early 2010 Fishabout trip host Atwin King decided to retire after 23 years of hosting Loreto trips and Matt was selected by Atwin and Fishabout to become the new Loreto trip host starting in July 2011. The rest is (future) history!
