Gary Gunsolley has been fishing the waters of the Eastern Sierra since he was 10 years old and has more than 50 years on the water experience. He is a FFF certified flycasting instructor and licensed flyfishing guide. He owned and operated Brock’s Flyfishing Specialists in Bishop, California for 25 years. The shop was Bishop’s “premier flyfishing store,” where Gary offered the full gambit of flyfishing support for his clients. Gary sold Brock’s in 2013 and the new owner officially closed its doors in December of 2014. 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
