Sam Matalone


I grew up in Northern California and started my passion for fly fishing at the age of 11. I was extremely lucky to have been surrounded by very good fly fisherman who taught me to cast, tie flies and to understand the role each of us plays in ensuring the future of our sport. I have associated with the Washington State Council of Fly Fishers for over 10 years. I retired as an Engineer from Texas Instruments after 30 years.
