May 2018 First Friday Meeting Speaker “Quiet Fly Fisher”
Our May 4th meeting will feature Mike James, owner of the Quiet Fly Fisher. Quiet Fly Fisher is a guide service in southern Utah. Mike will share information about the amazing scenery and endless options for chasing trophy sized brown, brook, rainbow, cutthroat, and tiger trout, while fly fishing South Central Utah.
If you’re not yet a member, you can still come to the meeting and learn about fly fishing in South Central Utah. We will also be giving more information about our upcoming outing to Kelsey Bass Ranch, an event that is a member favorite.
Mike and Debbie James run the Quiet Fly Fisher with the help of their 5 kids. Mike was introduced to fly fishing by his father at a young age when the family took trips to Idaho, Alaska, and different places in Utah. His father taught him a great love and respect for nature and a love for fly fishing.
Mike recalls memories of his dad having him practice his casting in the family’s swimming pool until he could hit a selected Poplar leaf his dad had picked out. “When I learned to hit the leaf my dad said he would take me fishing.”
It was his father’s desire, as Mike matured, to run a business that was geared more towards teaching the individual and families a love and respect for the pastime that he and his father so enjoyed together as well as his son’s experience with the beauty and wonders found in nature.
From Mike and Debbie “We are a small yet personal Fly fishing Guide Service for South Central Utah, and work hard to meet all your Fly fishing needs. We fish small streams, rivers, and lakes for great trout. Our love is Fly fishing and we really do enjoy sharing this quiet past time with you.”
