Robert Gerlach-Director

My passion for Fly Fishing began in 2001 when I met my wife. I picked up a spey rod very early on and put all other forms of fishing aside. I have since become a Certified Casting Instructor and I spend many hours teaching fly casting to youth throughout the Pacific Northwest.






Jay Woodbury-Director

Jay is a medically retired USMC combat veteran who became the Deputy Area Coordinator of Project Healing Waters in 2007. He took up fly fishing and tying in 2006 and has two flies published in the Fly Tying Journal and one fly on display at a museum in New York’s Catskills. He has been a board member of the (WSCFFI) since 2011






Larry Gibbs-Director

I am presently a director and the vendor coordinator for the Washington State Council. I am a life member of the FFI and belong to the President’s Club, plus I am a life member of the Fly Tying Group. I was also the auction coordinator for the FFI for five years and I served a term on the FFI’s Board of Directors. My past duties with the WSC have included the positions of auction coordinator, treasurer and secretary. I am the president of the FFI Charter Club, the Alpine Fly Fishers, in Puyallup as well as their newsletter editor. I will fish all waters but I prefer to fish for trout and smallmouth bass in the rivers of eastern Washington and western Montana.

Steve Jones –Newsletter Editor

I’ve been a member of Clark-Skamania Flyfishers for about 15 years and served as club president for three years and on the board since 2013. I want to contribute to the Washington chapter of Fly Fishers International and help keep it the lively and successful group members expect.
