Wed, Sep 14th at 7:00 p.m.
Meeting in person at Manuel’s Tavern.
Topic: Tactics targeting brown and rainbow trout, stripe and shoal bass.
Devin grew up on Buford Dam Rd in Buford Ga hunting and fishing along the Chattahoochee. Devin is the current fly fishing manager of the Buckhead ORVIS store. He and his Brother Dillon have guided with River Through Atlanta Guide Service since 2018.
Bio: Devin remembers his first fly rod well. It was an Orvis 7’6″ 4-weight Far-and-Fine rod with a Battenkill click-and-pawl reel; he received it when he was all but seven years old. While a faraway memory for sure, it was indeed a fine one as just a year later, he reeled in his first fish, a 12” wild brown he caught on the Provo River in Utah with his dad proudly at his side.
Fishing has always been a big part of Devin’s life, taking him to the Everglades to chase redfish snook and jack crevalle as well as to the Yellowstone River in southwest Montana. He even worked as a professional guide, where he led trips into the north Georgia mountains in search of native brook trout.
But Devin’s favorite adventures often involve a little hiking and a bit of bushwacking to get to a seldom-fished stretch of stream to test his luck against the fish there. Despite a brief stint as a private investigator, Devin remained firmly ensconced in the outdoor industry all his life. His position at Orvis Atlanta gives him the opportunity to provide greater numbers of anglers with the gear and guidance they need to realize their fly fishing dreams.
