Mastering the Dry Fly
Jon Baiocchi of Baiocchi’s Troutfitters has been fly fishing and tying flies since 1972, and is a California licensed fly fishing guide, published author, educator, tier, and public. Jon serves on the Truckee Trout Unlimited Board of Directors, and also volunteers his time with the South Yuba River Citizens League. Jon’s Dad, Bob Baiocchi, was inducted into the Federation of Fly Fishers Hall of Fame in 1999 for his peerless conservation work, and was a major influence in helping Jon hone his fly-fishing skills at a very young age. After finishing high school, Jon opted out of college to pursue a career as a professional snowboarder, competing at a national level, starring in feature movies, and working with manufacturers in their research and development programs. After his career ended in 1993, Jon focused entirely on fly fishing and conservation.
