Time and Date

About Steve:

Steve Hudson, a writer, teacher and lifelong fly fisher, says he may have the best of all possible jobs – one that lets him share the excitement of the fly fishing with others. An award-winning journalist and illustrator, he has written extensively on fly fishing, fly tying, hiking and travel.

This month, Steve will be speaking with us about fly fishing for white bass. For about six weeks every spring, the white bass run from lakes up into rivers on their annual spawning runs, and that can make for some exceptionally exciting fly fishing! Steve will talk about white bass strategies, flies, locations and more, and you’ll leave with the info you need to enjoy fishing for white bass yourself!

Following the program, Steve has offered to stick around for a little while to show us how to tie his favorite white bass fly – the “Red Nosed Yeti.” It’s a shad imitation that’s exceptionally effective on white bass wherever white bass are found…and we have it on good authority that it’s a great fly for other species (including trout) too!

When not out on the water, Steve stays busy at the writing desk. He is the author of more than 30 fly fishing and fly tying books, including the acclaimed “101” series of introductory fly fishing and fly tying guides. He is also the author of CHATTAHOOCHEE TROUT, a 328-page guide that’s been called “the definitive work on fishing for trout in north Georgia’s acclaimed Chattahoochee River.”

Steve is also the creator of the award-winning TIE IT & TRY IT series of fly tying kits. Each kit includes a detailed 20- to 28-page book designed to teach you how to tie each pattern, along with materials to tie of plenty of flies too.

Steve especially enjoys teaching others about flyfishing, fly tying and the out-of-doors. He is a frequent speaker and teacher on fly fishing, fly tying, hiking and outdoor recreation, having led seminars and workshops from Alaska to Florida.

Steve has three grown children (and two grandkids, which he will talk about endlessly if given the slightest opportunity). He lives in Roswell, Ga., with his wife Ann, Zoe the cat, and Ellie the Miniature Schnauzer.

He can be reached at (770) 329-7642 or via email at info@chattahoocheemedia.com.
