Join us on Wednesday evening, February 8th when Flycasters hosts Jon Baiocchi as our featured speaker. His program will a presentation about fishing on the Yuba River.
A Native Northern Californian with 44 years of hands on fly fishing for trout, Jon Baiocchi carries on the tradition of sharing the knowledge and the passion passed down from his father; a fly fishing hall of famer, and a legendary voice for saving California fisheries. Jon’s home is the rich flora and fauna of the foothills to the Northern Sierra. Fishing, guiding, public speaking, tying, writing, and teaching. The legacy continues.
Jon’s been fly fishing and tying flies since 1972 and is a California licensed fly fishing guide, published author of dozens of articles, educator, innovative tier, and a highly acclaimed public speaker. His Dad, Bob Baiocchi, was inducted into the Federation of Fly Fishers Hall of Fame in 1999 for his peerless conservation work, and was a major influence in helping Jon hone his fly fishing skills at a very early age.
Jon now owns and operatesBaiocchi’s Troutfitters guide service In Northern California where he has been guiding for the last 20 years. One of the most successful guides in Northern California, he has a reputation as hard working, with public relation skills at the highest level. His enthusiasm for the sport is contagious, and combined with his simple approach to teaching gives students the skills needed to be successful. Moved by all things flora and fauna his passion for such is never ending. His favorite game is stalking and sight fishing to large trout in shallow water whether it is a river or a still water.
