With a background in fisheries and wildlife management and teaching, Geoff is well suited to helping others experience the great outdoors with fly rod in hand. “I’ve come to realized that fly fishing isn’t about catching fish at all…it’s a catalyst for developing an appreciation for the natural world around us and deriving from it a sense of well-being. ”Since 1996, Geoff has owned Central Coast Fly Fishing, a full-service fly fishing specialties shop located in Carmel, CA.
