Frank Burr

Frank Burr learned Fly Fishing and Fly tying in summer school at the early age of 7 and Tenkara fishing in Japan in 1970. A native of Southern California, Frank fly fishes throughout the state. Although Trout is his favorite species, Frank will fly fish for any species just to get in a day of fishing. Frank has worked in the fly fishing industry for the past 6 years for Orvis and now for Snowbee USA. Frank is also a Fly Fishing instructor and Guide, specializing in Golden Trout and other Heritage Trout species. Click here to read the article.

Our Mission

  • To promote, improve and enjoy all phases of fly fishing.
  • To maintain a high standard of true sportsmanship and promote social relations among its' members.
  • We, individually, endeavor to take at least one youth (beginner/no age restriction) fly fishing annually; instruct them, to the best of our ability, in the art and responsibilities that are soon to be wholly theirs.
  • To fraternize and cooperate with organizations whose aims and purposes preserve our waters and to promote the sport.
  • To provide instruction and information in fly casting, flytying, rod building and entomology. These classes and/or clinics will be open to the public with no fee
