Todd will be dialling us in on the techniques, strategies and tactics on fly fishing for bass. He will be setting up his whiteboard so bring your notebooks. This is a chance to learn from a real expert and expand your skills.

Todd grew up fishing the reefs and open water of Oahu, Hawaii. He joined the Army in 2003 and has been stationed throughout the continental U.S. Todd was first introduced into the world of fly fishing while being stationed in North Carolina. His first trout caught on a fly was in the Smoky Mountains. Since that time he’s been addicted to fly fishing and sharing his passion with others. His job in the Army as a Flight Medic and Medical Instructor is apparent when he’s working with new anglers. He's fished for striped bass off the coast of New York, stalked monster bonefish in Hawaii, and chased trout in several states on both coasts. Todd's true passion is chasing trout in the desert creeks of Eastern Washington. Todd has been fishing for Warm Water species since he first moved to North Carolina. He traded his spinning rod for a fly rod and immediately taught himself warm water fly fishing. Since that time he’s fly fished for bass in 5 different states. During the spring in Central Washington, you can usually find Todd on a float tube chasing after largemouth and smallmouth bass.
