The Fly Fishers of Davis will host Mikey Wier on Tuesday, July 29, discussing his experiences fly-fishing the Truckee River.

The Truckee is a high Sierra freestone that slices through mountains and canyons as it complete a long descent from Lake Tahoe to Reno and the Nevada desert. Wier will discuss this technical, scenic river, with its classic riffles and pools holding rainbow trout and brown trout up to 20 inches long.

Growing up in the Sierra foothills, Wier was always close to nature. Spending a lot of time at lakes and rivers, he learned to fish and tie flies at a young age. Once he moved to Lake Tahoe, he began to split his time between snowboarding in the winters and fly-fishing in the summers.

Wier spent 15 seasons fishing and guiding the waters of the Truckee, Carson and Walker rivers and surrounding waters. In 2001, he started Burl Productions, specializing in adventure and outdoor films.

Wier now works for California Trout helping to protect California’s trout, salmon, steelhead and blue-ribbon waters. He is an ambassador for Patagonia Fly-Fishing, Loon Outdoors, Galvan Reels and Outcast boats.
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. in Davis. The meetings are free and open to newcomers and guests.

Members and guests are invited to gather at 7 p.m. to check out the various outings, ask about the club or try their luck at the monthly raffle.

“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).”
