The low-flow closures have been lifted and the Northcoast rivers are slowly coming into shape. The storm that pounded Northern California last week has passed, and in its wake, a smaller storm front is bringing additional rain to the area. Hopefully, this is the beginning of a moderately wet winter on the coast, with plenty of open windows for swinging flies for Steelhead.
To celebrate, we thought we’d introduce you to a friend of ours, photographer, author, graphic designer and fly fishing travel host, Jeff Bright. Jeff’s photography and writing have been featured in Catch Magazine, American Angler, Southwest Fly Fishing, California Fly Fisher and many other magazines. In 2002, Jeff’s book, Found In a River: Steelhead & Other Revelations was published by Frank Amato Publications. The book is filled with stunning photography and sparse prose chronicling his passion for fly fishing for steelhead.
Jeff, who is eternally committed to the celebration, pursuit & conservation of sea-run Rainbow Trout, does design work for the following conservation groups: California Trout, Wild Steelhead Coalition, Friends of the Trinity River & the Smith River Alliance.
