Once in a Blue Moon
Peter Koga started fly fishing in 1966, when there was little instruction; both level and double taper fly lines were still the standard. Peter started out fly fishing for trout, then moved on to the bonito in Kings Harbor. Peter joined FFCOC in the mid 70's after hearing a talk on fly fishing for steelhead. It was while fly fishing for steelhead that he met and was mentored by the likes of Bob Nauheim, Randall Kaufmann, John Hazel, Jim Klug, and various other anglers. Click here to view full details
