Doug is well known in the Reno area for his expertise on many area stillwaters such as Eagle lake, South Fork Reservoir, Davis Lake, Knott Creek Reservoir and Frenchman's Lake just to name a few. Rob has emerged on the scene in the last 10 years hosting club outings, teaching large clinics on both stillwaters and moving waters, doing talks at shows and fly club meetings all over the West.
