On Tuesday March 30 the Fly Fishers of Davis will hear from Justin Miller, via Zoom Webinar, who will be presenting on fly fishing the saltwater flats of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. Mexico offers a one-of-a-kind experience for everyone whether an angler is looking to catch their first bonefish or hoping to target the elusive Permit. While most anglers visit Mexico in the winter and spring, the often-overlooked late summer and fall season can be extremely productive. Miller will explore the species available, the tackle and equipment you will need, and some of the best lodge options you will no doubt want to visit the next time you feel like heading to the beach! After graduating from Chico State University, Miller started his career at The Fly Shop in Redding in 2004 as a counselor at the acclaimed FishCamp program. After that first summer, he was hired to work in the store full time. He started guiding the rivers of Northern California for The Fly Shop in 2006, swinging flies with Spey rods for steelhead. He started guiding the Kamchatka Peninsula in 2008 and has spent all summer, every summer, learning every river we fly to and offer on the Kamchatka Peninsula. Add all that time up and Miller has spent over a year of his life on the ground in Russia. Outside of Russia, Justin spends his time making plans on when and how to chase steelhead and then actually chasing steelhead, immersed in his rivers in every conceivable condition, good or bad, all around the Pacific rim and the world. You will be caught up in his purely infectious enthusiasm for anadromous fish. Miller now works in the International Travel Department at The Fly Shop. While he specializes in Spey fishing trips for steelhead and salmon, he also spends a lot of time in the jungles and saltwater flats. To register for this Zoom Webinar go to
