Past Speakers from October 2022 to May 2023
Wednesday, October 12, 2022: Eagle Lake and Lake Almanor Guide Mark Antaramian "Black Boat Mark", as we affectionately call him, will be speaking about Eagle Lake and how to approach it. Mark is known for blending new technology with the fly fishing skills he has acquired from his father and other guides over the past 35+ years. He started fly fishing on Lake Almanor and has fished extensively through the United States and Canada in all kinds of water. An engineer, he started his guide service seven years ago with the motto "Out with the old, and in with the new!" Check out his Facebook page. Mark gave great information on how to fish Eagle Lake. He also opened the meeting with a fly tying demonstration. Mark plans to post videos of how to tie various flies that give him and his clients success on Lake Almanor and Eagle Lake.
Wednesday, November 9, 2022: Long-time area guide, Lincoln Gray stepped up at the last minute after our featured speaker couldn't make it because of weather issues. Lincoln gave a very informative presentation on Steelhead fishing on the Feather River. Great timing for this! Lincoln has been a member of CAF for decades, including holding the office of President.
