Veteran Oregon angler and guide John Smeraglio will give a presentation on how to catch steelhead on the Deschutes River when the Puget Sound Flyfishers meet Thursday.
Smeraglio remembers landing his first Deschutes steelhead on a downstream swung Muddler Minnow in 1973.
In 1985, he moved from Portland to Maupin, Ore., to open the Deschutes Canyon Fly Shop. He has operated the fly shop and guide service for 26 years. He has been widely quoted in books, featured in magazine articles and has teamed up with Rick Hafele to produce a series of fly fishing DVDs.
The meeting begins at 6 p.m. at the Tower Lanes banquet room, 6323 Sixth Ave., Tacoma.
An optional $15 dinner is offered prior to the presentation and the regular meeting of the fly-fish group.
