|Welcome to Fly Fishing the
This site is dedicated to the fly fishermen that fish the Sierra Nevada
Region of California. This site will assist in locating the necessary information to locate
sites to fish, what flies to choose, and how to tie them. I've included maps of the region along with links to those
fly shops and guides who serve the area. There is a Fly Fishing Club link page with fly fishing clubs throughout California. Many of these clubs are members of the Federation of Fly Fishers.
I hope you enjoy this site. Please feel free to contact me with any comment you have pertaining to this site. Since I use many links to other sites, links can get broken and lost over time. Your feedback will assist in keeping the information current.
Regards, Steve Schalla (aka Stevenojai)
