If you have Googled or used You Tube to search for any “How To” video in reference to fly fishing, then
I am sure you have seen Joe Rotter of Red’s Fly Shop. I know I have. He is always there. There seem to be hundreds of videos where Joe is teaching some topic related to fly fishing. On January 11, 2017, Joe will be at the Spokane Fly Fishers monthly meeting discussing Central Washington Steelhead Fishing.
Joe Rotter of Red’s Fly Shop is a veteran guide of Central Washington, spanning 17 seasons. He has taught thousands of anglers with beginning to advanced casting skills with both single and two handed rods. While still guiding part time, his primary focus is on fly fishing education through blogging and social media outlets. His YouTube Channel is one of the most widely recognized and utilized sources of fly fishing information with over 4 MILLION views! In addition to guiding for trout, salmon, and steelhead, Joe also hosts and coordinates many trips to tropical destinations as well. He is eager to share all he knows and always looks forward to helping in any way he can with a friendly and humble approach. So please come early to get a good seat.
