The Fly Fishers of Davis will host Dave Barbieri on Tuesday, Feb. 25, for a program titled “Fly Fishing the Yuba River.”

The Yuba River is one of the most popular known fly-fishing rivers in Northern California. Barbieri will discuss the technical nature of the river and its hard-fighting fish, which combine to make it a sought-after destination for fly-fishing enthusiasts.

Barbieri is a certified fly-casting instructor and licensed guide with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. An avid outdoorsman, he grew up fishing the Yuba and has more than 35 years of angling experience on the trout rivers of Northern California, as well as some of the best trout streams west of the Rockies.

“I take pride in sharing my personal experience on the river with fellow fly-fishers,” Barbieri said. “From teaching basic fly-casting and fly-fishing technique to advanced angling concepts, my goal is to increase your knowledge of the sport and provide you with a relaxing and pleasurable experience.”

In addition to fly-fishing, Barbieri also enjoys hunting, playing bass and spending time with his family.

The Fly Fishers of Davis normally meet to swap fish stories 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 young fly-fishers (under 16).
