2—Local bugs and respective fly patterns
3—Seasonally ideal angling times
4—Key access points of selected waters
The SPECIFICS: The Tour is designed to give fly anglers what they need to know to be successful when venturing on selected special regulation sectors of the Big Truckee, from the town of Truckee to Hirschdale, and the Little Truckee below Stampede dam. Fly fishers will learn of access points, equipment, tactics, techniques, flies, entomology, and local inside knowledge. The Tour entails a “meet & greet” and PowerPoint presentation on Friday evening. Attendees receive a Tour Packet consisting of a map, essays on both waters, and a hatch chart. A bonus is a copy of the original Truckee & Little Truckee Tips. Saturday we auto-caravan; participates providing their own transportation. Lunch and drinks are included. After lunch we wader up (bring your own gear) and split into two fishing groups; similar to a guide trip.
Tours are limited to six (6). Jon and Frank know they can easily enroll more tour guests, but they want to assure a high quality experience. We maintain a maximum 3-1 ratio of attendee to “tour” guide. Minimally, one of us will conduct the tour and there is a probability that both will conduct the tours jointly.
The TOUR GUIDES: Jon and Frank are the founders of the Native Sons Tours. They are “born & raised” northern Californians with a combined 54 years of guiding fly anglers exclusively on their “home waters” and a near-century, 94 years of fly fishing experience. The tour information dispensed is reliable, timely and ingrained from Jon and Frank’s vast experience. Simply, experience does count. They have always tailored guide trips to the specific desires and skills of the individual client and have planned guest’s time accordingly. Hence the genesis of the Native Sons Tours; to provide a group of experienced fly rodders a short learning curve and cost-effective investment in their angling time.
