The Fly Fishers of Davis will host Jon Baiocchi on Tuesday in a program on “Fly Fishing Eagle Lake.” His presentation will unlock many secrets to this vast stillwater that is so popular with fly anglers all over the west and beyond.

Baiocchi will talk about access points, techniques, tactics, flies, entomology, the Eagle Lake rainbow, the seasons and the history of the lake. More than 100 slides, including maps and diagrams, will accompany his talk.

Baiocchi has been fly fishing and tying flies since 1972 and is a California licensed fly fishing guide, published author, educator, innovative tier and public speaker. He has given fly fishing presentations to clubs and expos across the state. His dad, Bob Baiocchi, was inducted into the Federation of Fly Fishers Hall of Fame in 1999 and was a major influence in helping Jon hone his fly fishing skills at an early age.

Jon now owns and operates Baiocchi’s Troutfitters guide service In Northern California, where he has been guiding for the past 17 years. He has a reputation as a hard-working guide who has been trained by some of fly fishing’s best-known anglers. His enthusiasm for the sport is contagious and, combined with his simple approach to teaching, gives students the skills needed to be successful, a news release said.

Baiocchi has guided fishermen at Lake Davis, the middle fork of the Feather River, Frenchman’s Reservoir, Eagle Lake, the north fork of the Yuba River, Lake Almanor, the Big and Little Truckee rivers, the Lower Yuba, and many secluded creeks in Eastern Plumas County.

The Fly Fishers of Davis normally meet to swap lies at 7:30 p.m. on the last Tuesday of the month in the multipurpose room at Harper Junior High School, 4000 E. Covell Blvd. The meetings are free and open to newcomers and guests.

“If you’re interested in learning to fly fish, come to the meeting and ask anyone about our introductory and intermediate fly fishing courses,” a news release said. The club is also working on a program for fly fishers under age 16.
