September's Guest Speaker is
Leo Gutterres


Leo has been fly fishing since the mid 60's. Leo started out fishing for trout and eventually graduated to black bass and shad. And of the two, bass became his passion. He's fished for largemouth bass on all kinds of water from farm ponds to exotic locations such as El Salto in Mexico.
 
In the early 70's he fished Clear Lake for bass and was fortunate to meet the famous "Lucky Lloyd Eiserman" the Prince of Clear Lake. Mr.Eiserman was unable to guide him for the day, but agreed to meet at his trailer home after dinner for a popper making session. Leo spent the next 6 hours  gleaning all the information that Lucky Lloyd graciously passed on to him. From how to choose the hardest balsa, how to make a jig to score the centerline, the different types of solutions for dipping the poppers for a clear hard body and the different types of paints and painting schemes.
 
Leo has spent the last 35+ years trying to pass this information along to anyone who is interested in this craft. He has been tying for the NCCFFF for many years and has given popper making classes to many of the fly fishing clubs in Northern California including TFF.

Come join us for another unforgettable session with Leo and don't forget to bring your NOTEBOOK !!
