GSO - Great Summer Outing


Friday, July 22, 2022 to Sunday, July 24, 2022

SATURDAY NIGHT BBQ - 6:30pm

* Group fishing start on Friday morning, so you may want to get here on Thursday or even earlier in the week.



The Great Summer Outing is a fantastic event designed especially to help beginning fly fishers to get started fly fishing the Eastern Sierra.  But even experienced old time members can join in the fun. 

THIS YEAR WE HAVE SPECIAL EVENTS ON FRIDAY AND SATURDAY. THERE WILL BE AN ENTEMOLOGY PROGRAM TAUGHT BY ROBERT YOUNGHANZ AKA "THE BUG GUY"


Robert Younghanz, a.k.a.The Bug Guy, has been involved in the Fly Fishing industry for close to 25 years. Having traveled to over 60 countries, he is an accomplished angler, teacher and guide for fresh, salt, tropical and warm water species. His passion and expertise in the field of Aquatic Entomology has enabled him to travel the world collecting Insects, as well as studying, researching, curating and teaching at Colorado State University, In addition, Robert is a published researcher and has described several new species of aquatic insects. As a contributing writer for Field and Stream’s “Fly Talk”, and TROUT Magazine he offers helpful advice on entomology and fly selection to fly fishers all over the globe. For more information about Robert check out his website: www.the-bug-guy.com.
