    Greg Darling | Warm Water Expert
    Gorge Fly Shop Internet Manager and Product specialist

    Greg DarlingWarm water Species is where I consider myself an expert. I have been pursuing Bass, Crappie, Bluegill and Walleye all my life. Between my hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio, north to Lake Erie and beyond into Canada is where I have gathered most of my experience. Since moving to the Northwest and starting my career with GFS in 2007 I have built my reputation for being a bass pro on the mighty Columbia River. I canít explain the hold on me the passion for these warm water species but it exists and thrives no matter where I go. So if you have ever wanted to take a Bullgill on a 3wt or tease a smallmouth to the surface with a giant popper than we share the same passion and I would be thrilled to share my knowledge with you for your pursuits. Today Steelhead gets much of my attention and swinging flies with a Two Hand rod has further advanced my skills. I now find myself using these tools in the pursuit of Trout, Bass and any other species I think I can swing a fly to. The passion of fishing involves discovery. Its a lifelong pursuit!

    John Garret Gorge Fly ShopI have been a full time professional fishing guide for 20 years, and have fished for Salmon, Steelhead and Sturgeon most of my life. I have guided some of the best waters in Washington State and Alaska. Iím knowledgeable in Gear, Center pin and Fly fishing but my true passion is fly fishing. I have been fishing these waters since high school. I have fished the Klickitat River since the late 70's and guided over 20 seasons. The Klickitat River is by far my favorite river to fish. This is a wonderful stream that is perfect for fly fishing. A glacier fed stream with steelhead that love to take flies. The Klickitat is a stream that you can wake, swing or nymph fish with confidence.
