DFF Welcomes Michael Schweit
Michael Schweit has been fishing since the age of 8 (catch and release as he dropped his first trout back in the Kern) and took up fly fishing over 30 years ago. His passion is saltwater fishing because he likes to see his backing knots. Five years ago, he landed a world record White Seabass on 8# tippet at the Channel Islands.
