John Williams







Graduate of Long Beach State University in Art, I spent the bulk of my career selling paper products to printers. I began to fly fish after a couple of friends invited me to Hot Creek Ranch 1985 where I developed an appreciation for the sport. Being tight with funds and an art background I decided it was less expensive to tie flies rather than buy them, I was wrong, but it left open the ability to create what I wanted. After a pack trip into the Ansel Adams wilderness I was asked if I would be interested in guiding and fourteen years later decided I needed more time with my family and gave up the fun of guiding. Many years later and several thousand of dollar I feel complete except for the bucket list of places I have yet to fish. This sport has brought me in contact with many wonderful people who have a shared love for fly-fishing all over the world.
