PRO STAFF AND SIERRA GUIDE
Long-time friend of CFFU, Ernie Gulley is currently a professional fly fishing guide in southern California and the eastern Sierra with 23 years of fly fishing and is known as one of the Sierra’s premier Stillwater guides. Even when he is finished guiding for the day, you will find him back out on the water until sunset, always exploring, testing, observing, analyzing and putting in the extra time and effort to master his craft. His philosophy is simple: you can always learn something new every time you are on the water.
Ernie is a “Pro Ambassador” for the Hardy Fly Fishing Company and the Cortland Line Company, among others. He takes great pride in sharing his knowledge of fly fishing and his greatest passion is teaching Stillwater fly fishing tactics.
Chironomids from Top to Bottom
Every wonder why other anglers around you are consistently catching fish? Let me help you and share my philosophy and tactics that will help you become a better and more consistent angler. I have been aggressively fishing and guiding one of the toughest and technical Stillwaters we have in the West and want to share this knowledge with you. I will show you my leader setups, types of fly rods and reels, fly lines, fly patterns and the chironomid life cycle. I will share and make sure you always will know how and when to put your fly patterns at the proper depth. Depth, color and size of your flies in that order are the most important aspect of learning how to fish chironomidssuccessfully. Let me share with you my secrets of success from thousands of hours on the water and help build your confidence so you can have great success on the water using my chironomidfly fishing tactics.
