May's Guest Speaker is Kevin Doran
       
 
Kevin's presentation will be "Delta Bass:  Top to Bottom."

Capt. Kevin Doran started fishing for largemouth bass on the shores of Clear Lake in N. California as a young boy over fifty years ago.

He became interested in Flyfishing as well during this time after being given his late grandfathers bamboo Flyfishing rods and tying equipment. Hula Poppers and Jitterbugs soon gave way to balsa poppers as he taught himself to cast fly cast and gain Flyfishing skills.

Top water fishing was in his blood at this early stage of his fishing career. This carried forward into his Delta fishing with committed focus on learning as much as he could about catching largemouth bass and Stripers on the Delta.

From top to bottom, Kevin pursued these fish with passion using Flyfishing tackle. This eventually resulted in Kevin   abandoning sub-surface tactics for his largemouth bass fishing and focusing strictly to top water tactics.

These experiences culminated into Kevin being renowned as one of the Delta's premier Flyfishing guides with his top water experience being unmatched.

Kevin no longer guides but still retains his passion for pursuing the Delta's LM Bass,Smallmouth Bass, and Striped Bass.

Kevin has been featured in numerous industry publications, books, tv shows, and played a supporting role in "Bass the Movie" by Howard films. Kevin also does presentations, has conducted lodge guide training at two of Mexico's premier bass fisheries and his fly designs have been well documented. Kevin is an original founding member of "Bass-n-Fly"  which developed into the premier Flyfishing bass tournament in the country.
