Award Winning Presentations By Jon Baiocchi


I’m available for fly fishing-themed presentations on a variety of topics and destinations. I absolutely love to share the world of fly fishing with fly clubs and organizations whether it is at their meeting place or on site. I also offer a number of choice Powerpoint programs that decipher areas like Lake Davis, The Wild & Scenic Middle Fork Feather River, Eagle Lake, The Lower Yuba River, and Frenchman’s Reservoir. My newest presentation “Pontooning Rivers” opens the door for those seeking how to effectively drift in a personal watercraft in moving water. Another new program I’ve created which has been highly spoken of, shares the absolute beauty of the “North Fork Yuba River”. My audience can gain insight and knowledge from my first-hand experience from flies to equipment and beyond. Acquire the knowledge for a more enjoyable and productive day on the water!

“Thanks again Jon for an excellent high level presentation. The club appreciates your contribution.”

Trent Pridemore, Gold Country Fly Fishers


“Jon, you are on the top of my list of presenters and please feel free to use us as a reference any time! Thanks again!  Great Program!”

Ken Giesser, California Fly Fishers Unlimited

“Jon, I got a bunch of great feedback on your presentation! The way you presented the info was perfect. Thanks again for sharing the knowledge.”

– Steve Potter, Tracy Fly Fishers

“Jon, thank you again for coming down and visiting our cruise ship that never leaves port. The word was out and we had the most attendance in 3 years…48 old timers showed up out of 70     members. Most fall asleep at 7-8PM, and I didn’t notice anyone nodding off, that is a record! Thanks again!”

Henry Sandigo, Lincoln Hill Fishing Club, Sun City.

“Our May program was an outstanding presentation by member Jon Baiocchi on the North Fork of the Yuba river. The river is pretty close to us and is a great place to catch a wild rainbow       on a dry fly.  All you beginners out there – this is a river you should try. If you missed it, sorry, because it was one of the best presentations we have had”.

Dick Gander, Tahoe Truckee Fly Fishers

“Jon, thank you so much for fighting through the rainstorm and making it to Modesto to give us your new presentation, Mastering the Dry Fly. The club thoroughly enjoyed the program and I heard a lot of positive feedback including several folks wanting to see the show again. Thanks for taking your time with the presentation so the members could take pictures of screenshots that they found exceptionally interesting. I really enjoyed the animation you used to demonstrate different techniques of dry fly fishing. Your program was interesting, informative and fun. You proved again with your new program and your obvious passion for fishing with the long rod why you are one of our, (Stanislaus Fly Fishers), favorite speakers. Thank you!”

–  Jim Bowen, President, Stanislaus Fly Fishers


“Your presentation last night might have been one of the best presentations I’ve ever seen. Not only in terms of content, but in terms of style, storytelling, and use of multimedia. You have definitely peaked my interest in dries. Thanks!”
