This month, Tuesday March 27, at Harper Junior High School, the Fly Fishers of Davis will hear from Ken Hanley who will give a presentation on fly fishing for largemouth bass. Ken will go over tactics, conditions that are best to target the fish, and the wide assortment of specialized flies that Ken has found great success with.
Hanley has been a fly fishing ambassador since the early ‘70s. As a guide and instructor, he’s worked with thousands of students in the field. He’s the author of seven fly fishing books. He also writes and photographs for both international and regional publications in the outdoor industry.
In addition, his outreach to audiences includes videos celebrating both saltwater and freshwater adventures. Hanley’s extensive field experience spans the globe; from the highest peaks in Tibet and the Himalaya, to the remote wilderness regions of Asia, New Zealand, Mexico, Europe, and North America.
Hanley is on Pro Staff with the following sponsors; SAGE Instructor, SIMMS, RIO Products Intl, Daiichi, Renzetti, Dr. Slick, Hatch, and Patagonia. He’s still stoking the fire with his longtime commitment to the Adventure Industry and environmental education.
