General Meeting with speaker Mike Copithorne!

  • April 21, 2011
  • 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
  • HCC

Mike Copithorne is the co- owner of Off the Hook Fly Fishing; a fly fishing outfitter based in the Napa Valley. Mike grew up in the hills East of Redding CA. He began fly fishing at age 7 in the small streams and lakes in the mountains surrounding Redding. 

His passion to fly fish has led all over the world and loves to tackle new species with his fly rod and add them to his life list. It currently sits at 56 species. Most of which have been caught after a snowboarding accident left him paralyzed from the waist down.

Mike has been a teacher, professional athlete, business owner, motivational speaker, and worked in fly fishing retail. His story of hope has been featured in magazines, books, and videos. He truly enjoys sharing his passion for fly fishing with others, and hopes that those who hear his story will be encouraged to tackle the challenge of life and get out and fish!

Mike will show a slide presentation on fishing Belize for the Inshore Big Four; Bonefish, Permit, Tarpon and Snook.  He will share fantastic photos by renown adventure sport and fly fishing photographer Adam Barker, and heart pounding video from Mikey Wier from a recent mother ship trip.
