November's Guest Speaker is
Bill Beckett

Bill Beckett started his flyfishing career at the age of 8,
fishing mountain streams with his dad in the Trinity Alps.
He continued his passion for flyfishing through high school
and college while he studied to become a Fisheries Biologist.

Bill is currently the manager of Headwaters Kayak Shop in Lodi.

In 2011 Bill picked up the sport of Kayak Fishing and turned his attention to fly
fishing the Delta and the Northern California coast.

Bill feels the kayak is the perfect tool for fishing the skinny backwaters
of the Delta for bass, stripers and bluegill, or for paddling up
close to the boiler rocks for rockfish and lingcod.

Bill started hosting guided fly fishing trips in kayaks in the Delta in 2016, sharing his
passion for kayak fly fishing with others.

He believes our connection with the fish and our love for nature
is the common thread that unites us as fly anglers.
