Fishing the Truckee, A Guide's Perspective

Matt Heron operates a fly-fishing school and outfitting business in the Truckee/Tahoe area. His school offers multiple classes daily, spring through fall on private stocked ponds in Squaw Valley. His outfitter network is permitted to guide nearly every body of water in the greater Reno/Tahoe region. Matt’s background includes being an IFFF Certified Casting Instructor, NOLS Patagonia graduate, IFFF Angling and Aquatic Educator, hosting saltwater trips worldwide, and working for the Fly Fishing Film Tour. Matt's casting sessions address "Faults and Fixes." He'll show you how the ‘pick up and lay down’ cast, false casting, shooting line, and roll casting.  He’ll also cover how a fly rod works, and loop formation and sizes.
