October's Guest Speaker is
Greg Vinci

Greg Vinci has been contributing articles and photography to publications since 2008. Upon graduating
from California State University, Sacramento his first career foray was as a commercial photographer. After a career
in the wholesale fly fishing tackle industry, Greg began a new career contributing photography and articles to national outdoor magazines.

Some of the publications that he has written for are, Flyfishing & Tying Journal, Sierra Heritage, Fly Fisherman
Magazine, Fly Rod & Reel Magazine, American Angler, Northwest Fly Fishing Magazine, Southwest Fly Fishing Magazine and Runners World to name a few. Subjects have ranged from historical articles to fly fishing and travel. Several of his photos have appeared on covers of these magazines. His book “Flyfisher’s Guide to California” was published by Wilderness Adventures Press in November 2015.

Greg's presentation for this month's club meeting will be "American River Steelhead".

Northern California’s American River is one of the southern most reliable trophy Steelhead fisheries in the northern hemisphere. The size of the fish are large and they return each winter like clockwork. The American also hosts annual runs of “half-pounder Steelhead” and good runs of American Shad and Stripped Bass. All of this in one of the most densely populated cities in the state.

Greg's presentation consists of over a hundred photos taken over the past ten years to illustrate the stories he's
written for major fly fishing and outdoor magazines. The tour begins at the most downstream access point and then continues upstream to Nimbus Hatchery near the dam. Along the way we visit each of the access points and
the best holding water for Steelhead. Fly patterns and techniques are covered along with lots of maps to provide orientation as we proceed.

This is a great introduction to those who have never fished the American and it will also provide some good information
to regular visitors that have not had a chance to explore the whole fishery.
