Our Guest Speaker for the May 2nd club meeting is Cam Coffin, owner of Blue Ribbon Flies in West Yellowstone, Montana
Title of the presentation:
From Beginning to End: A Trip through the Seasons
The Fly Fishers of the Bitterroot is pleased to welcome Cam Coffin as our dinner speaker for our May 2nd meeting.
This presentation takes you through the entire fishing season in and outside of Yellowstone Park. It will cover many of the major streams and lakes and their hatches as well as many overlooked and not so obvious fishing opportunities that Yellowstone Country has to offer. There is no way to cover all of the rivers and lakes in the area so Cam will talk about the ones that he personally loves to fish!
Cam will also briefly talk about his saltwater trips that for the past 20 winters the shop have offered. This includes saltwater trips to Belize and Mexico both of which are world class bonefish, permit and tarpon destinations.
Cam was born and raised in West Yellowstone Montana and started fishing when he was 10 years old with his dad and 4 brothers. He started working and guiding for Craig Mathews in 1989 and have been at Blue Ribbon Flies ever since. During these past 25 years he has guided between 110- 160 days per year. He has guided all throughout Yellowstone Park and several rivers in Montana such as the Madison, Yellowstone, Missouri, Beaverhead, Ruby, Big Hole, Boulder, Stillwater, and Bighorn to name a few. In 2014 he became the proud owner of Blue Ribbon Flies, which he purchased from Craig Mathews. Cam currently lives in West Yellowstone, MT with his wife Kristy and two children Sam and Izzy.
You will not find another place in the world with a larger concentration of blue ribbon trout streams and still waters than the greater Yellowstone area. Over two thousand miles of water are within a short drive of our headquarters in West Yellowstone, Montana.
