Bob is a California “native”, fishing the various waters of the expansive state since the 1970’s and after retiring from a “real job”, owned and operated a retail fly fishing store, Fly Anglers Unlimited in Pleasanton, California. Currently, Bob is active in his local fly club, The San Jose Flycasters, and has previously served on the Board of Directors, including a term as President.
