Travis Johnson to appear at The Sandy River Spey Clave
Travis Johnson began his fly fishing career at the ripe old age of 12. He was that kid who could not learn enough about anything and everything to do with fly fishing.
Travis landed his first Deschutes red-side at age 14 and his first summer steelhead at age 16. His passion for fishing with a fly has taken him all over the country and his wisdom of fishing the western United States surpasses most young men his age.
Having guided the Sandy, Clackamas and the Deschutes Rivers for over 6 years, Travis has learned how to find even the toughest of fish with success, while bringing an infectious energy to the game that will leave you invigorated and inspired.
From a day of chasing wily resident trout to learning in one of his advanced Spey casting classes, your day with this young man will not soon be forgotten.

is both student and instructor in the art of fly casting. He is a member
of the prestigious Carron competition Spey Casting team. Last year he
placed second at the CLA World Championships held at Blenheim Palace.
Winner of the event was Carron team member Gerard Downey, with a
magnificent cast of 70.63 meters (231.7 feet). Gerard is now the current
World Champion. The team is based out of Invergordon, Ross-shire,
Scotland. It has dominated the Spey distance events for the past eleven
years and has 12 world Championships to its credit. This team has won
more events than all of the rest of the competing teams combined and
Carron fly lines hold all of the Spey Casting distance records Most of
the 6- members are Scottish. Gerard and Raurri are Irish, and of course
Travis resides right here in Oregon, USA. As a matter of fact he grew up
in Brightwood, just down the street from The Fly Fishing Shop, where he
is currently employed in several capacities, including fishing guide and
fly fishing instructor. He practices distance Spey Casting several times
a week and regularly achieves casts of 150-200 feet with either hand.
The video below was shot adlib while fishing. Nothing was staged or scripted. Everything was shot with a hand held pocket camera. We hope you find it entertaining and informative.
