Need an introduction to Jerry French? Here it is:

"Hi, I'm Jerry French. I was born and raised on the West coast, where I developed a love of fly fishing early on. At the age of 16, I loaded up my Volkswagen Beetle and chased trout all over Washington, Oregon, and BC. My trout addiction inevitably led to steelhead. Once I caught that first summer run steelhead, all I could think about was encountering more.

My summers were soon occupied with guiding in Alaska to support my winter steelhead habit. There's nothing like the peaceful and quiet current of winter steelhead on the Skagit and Sauk Rivers. Now, almost 30 years later, I'm even more infected with the steelhead bug and everything about it!"
