Join us online on Feb. 2 for Landon R. Mayer’s presentation, Mastering the Short Game, in which he points out that 80 percent of trout are caught within 20 feet or closer. Watch for an email from FWFF President David Hooper for the Zoom link as the meeting date nears, and be sure to put David’s address, firstname.lastname@example.org, in your contacts or safe senders.
Landon has been guiding in Colorado full time on the South Platte River for the last 23 years, and one full season on the Nak Nek River in Alaska. His angling success is fueled by an addiction to pursuing large trout with small flies and lightweight fly-fishing equipment. He enthusiastically teaches and demonstrates his techniques and on-river knowledge to fellow anglers and has developed innovative strategies for sighting, hooking, and landing selective trout. He shares these tips and secrets in his books The Hunt for Giant Trout: 25 Top Locations in the US to Catch a Trophy (new for 2019), Trout Tips: A Guide’s Secrets, Tactics and Techniques, Colorado’s Best Fly Fishing, Sight Fishing for Trout, and How to Catch the Biggest Trout of Your Life, in addition to his new film with “Headwater Media: Mastering the Short Game.”
Landon is a contributing writer for Fly Fisherman and High Country Angler magazines. His contributions also have been featured in publications such as Fly Rod and Reel, American Angler, Southwest Fly Fishing, Field and Stream, and Fish and Fly magazines. As an ambassador in the fly-fishing industry, Mayer represents several lines including Simms Fly Fishing apparel and is a royalty fly designer for Umpqua Feather Merchants. He is also an advisory team member of Simms, R.L. Winston, Bauer, Scientific Angler, Smith Optics, Fishpond Fly Fishing, Yeti Coolers, Regal Vise, Riversmith, and Casio Pro Trek watches.
He resides with his wife, Michelle, and their four children in Florissant, Colo.
