Sierra Fly Fishing Vol.1 / The Lower Kern River
with Guy Jeans
Sierra Fly-Fishing is an episodic instructional fly-fishing show that features the rich and diverse world of fly-fishing in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. We explore these waters with Guy Jeans as our guide. Guy is the owner of Kern River Fly Shop and Kern River Fly Fishing Guide Service located in Kernville, CA. He teaches us the varied techniques for a successful day on the river, tailored to each location and condition. The first show focuses on fly-fishing the lower Kern River. The lower Kern river is a notoriously challenging tail water flowing from Lake Isabella. This past winters we were able to film some exciting sequences on the lower Kern presenting the techniques Guy uses in finding and catching the beautiful trophy rainbows that elude most anglers on this section of river. The lower Kern River is only a two and a half hour drive from Los Angeles and a three-hour drive from San Diego. Southern Californians don't realize that they have a world-class fly-fishing destination right in their own back yard. The Kern Drainage is home to three of California's wild native heritage trout; the Golden Trout, Kern River Rainbow, and the Little Kern Golden Trout. In future shows we will focus on The Upper Kern and it s many diverse tributaries, as well as the beautiful creeks and meadows of the High Sierra. The Techniques covered are Kern Czech Nymphing, Kern Dead Drift, Streamer Techniques, and Down Stream Presentations.
