General Meeting with John Squires

John has been a fly fisher for 40 years and has planned and carried out wilderness fishing trips in California, Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Canada and Alaska. 

In this presentation John will explain how to go about planning and carrying out your own affordable Alaska wilderness fishing adventure. Topics covered will range from destinations, timing your trip to coincide with different fishing opportunities, necessary gear, meal planning, available fish species, appropriate fishing gear and fly patterns, photographic gear, how to deal with "the 3 Bs" (bears, bugs and the barometer), costs and how to keep them down, reliable service providers, a typical trip schedule, and reference materials. 

Recently, John started a company called Against The Flow Adventures to do guided trips to the "not so famous rivers" in Alaska and is planning a horseback trip to a very special place in the Sierras. 

The focus of this presentation is that, with proper preparation, proper equipment, proper wilderness skills and proper planning, you can conduct any wilderness trip yourself.
