B.P. #021 - Guide Greg Kennedy - Fish Kennedy Brothers

Greg Kennedy-one of the locally famous Fish Kennedy Brothers, started fly fishing in Mammoth lakes of the Eastern Sierras, where his dad started fly shop. Greg moved to Redding, CA 2002 and the rest is history. The two brothers have been expanding and growing their business, and recently have had no available days to guide due to demand. The fly shop Greg’s Dad started, “The Troutfitter,” is still very successful, but the pull for bigger water and steelhead is what keeps the brothers in Redding.

Listen up as Greg talks about his very exciting trip to Russia, where he participates in scientific research in order to fish the area. Greg also compares coastal California trout to Russian trout. Stay tuned to hear why Greg and Kris Kennedy make such a great fly fishing guide team. Other interesting stories will include guiding a bachelorette party, a close bear encounter in Russia, discussion of bear encounters on the Sacramento River, and how Russian water management compares to ours.

Later, hear some valuable tips about building a fly fishing blog or website, as well as a social media presence, from an experienced guide. In the same discussion, Chad recommends a free CRM website. Greg also recommends his favorite camera recently for social media and blogs.
