Ryan Williams will be doing a presentation on the fly fishing Float 'n Fly technique he and his partner used to win the Wild West Bass CA Teams Tournament in early January this year on Lake Shasta for an $8,000 payout. Ryan’s team beat over 180 other teams fishing conventional gear.
The talk will focus on the technique, rigging and flies for fishing the Float 'n Fly for winter and spring bass and trout in lakes and reservoirs. He will also talk on the basics of how to approach and fish bass ponds in preparation for our upcoming trip to Kistler Bass Ponds later this year.
Ryan is donating a few of his now-coveted Float 'n Fly Components to our meeting raffle.
Ryan Williams is a full-time guide & fly tier, centered in Oroville. With 9 years of guiding experience, he now focuses on the Feather and Sac rivers for trout, steelhead, and stripers, Lake Oroville and Berryessa for bass, and Clear Lake for both bass and crappie. Ryan is best known for his re-discovery of the Float 'n Fly with the fly rod, and its application for stillwater bass during the winter. Ryan is also the first fly fishing guide to figure out Clear Lake. He’s been a major proponent of top-water fly fishing on California’s public reservoirs. Ryan is also the current Costa Bass-n-Fly Champion along with Brian Pultz.
Ryan now resides right next to Lake Oroville, allowing him to fish as much as he can possibly stand. He is about as passionate about fly fishing as they come, and truly enjoys sharing his information.
