His photography has appeared on the covers of California Fly Fisher, Fly Fishing & Tying Journal, and Sierra Heritage.

Topic:  The Lower Yuba River

Greg fishes numerous California tailwater rivers, which are convenient for PFF members because most are within 2-3 hours' drive of the Peninsula.  He will present on fly fishing the tailwater section of the Yuba River below Englebright Dam, aka the Lower Yuba River.


In the twenty-five years that Greg has been in the fly tackle industry, his career has taken him down many diverse paths. In 1989, he started Sierra Pacific Products which became one of the major wholesale distributors in the fly tackle industry. Greg developed several best selling product lines that are still being sold today. Greg sold the business in 2010. Since then he has been able to re-establish a relationship with his first loves, writing and photography.

Greg also has kept his foot in the door of the fly business, by continuing to develop fly tackle product lines on a consultancy basis for clients in the fly tackle industry. In 2011 his product Insta-Set Indicators was selected by Field & Stream magazine as the best fly tackle accessory of the year! As a signature fly tier for Umpqua Feather Merchants, the fly tackle industry’s most prominent fly manufacturer, he has developed fly patterns that can be found in most fly shops around the country. In December of 2015 Greg’s book “Fly Fisher’s Guide to California” was published by Wilderness Adventures Press and is available in most fly shops and Amazon. Greg’s day job is as the Social Media Director for Kiene’s Fly Shop in Sacramento CA.
