August Meeting - Evan Praskin

  • August 06, 2020
  • 7:00 PM - 9:30 PM
  • Zoom

Please join us on Thursday August 6th at 7pm when our guest speaker Evan Praskin of StokeVentures will discuss Fly Fishing the Beaches and Surf around San Francisco.

Evan Praskin was born and raised in the Santa Cruz mountains of California. His parents introduced him to fishing at a very young age and he would spend most of his summers swimming and fishing the beaches of Santa Cruz County.

On his 9th birthday he was given his first fly tying kit and his addiction for the sport began. Some of his favorite memories are of early morning trips with his dad to the local San Lorenzo River in chase of Steelhead, or to the piers and jetties of Monterey Bay in hopes of catching the “big one.”​

Evan began heavily targeting surf species in the mid 2000's, and once he realized they would eat a fly he never looked back.

Evan is currently an Ambassador for Galvan Fly Reels, BlackStrap Inc, Streamworks Fly Fishing, and Arcade Belts. He has a deep compassion for the sport, with conservation always in mind.

Being a father of two himself, he strives to keep the fisheries thriving in hopes that his son, daughter, and future grandchildren will always have waters to wade in.

Evan also has some great videos on YouTube.

If there is interest we may try to set up a couple workshops with Evan on an unofficial individual “tag-a-long” basis.

There's no need to register online for the meeting. An email will be sent in advance to all TVFF members with the link you can use to access the Zoom meeting.
