Bio

Sam R. Johnson

Outdoorsman, Author, Bagpiper & Do Gooder @Wild Bearings

Sam has been described as a part yesterday – part today, red-blooded, flag waving American, performer, Christian, traveler, “sensible” conservationist, kilted fly fisherman, talker, loyal friend, gentleman, do-gooder, mountain man, and occasional prevaricator…. as well as few other slightly demonstrative adjectives! But here’s what we know for sure about him as far as fly fishing: Charter Member, Past President and current Board Member of Trout Unlimited’s Gold Rush Chapter. He learned to fly fish in his family’s lake in AL for largemouth bass, bream and shell crackers. Been fishing the waters of North Georgia, North Carolina and Virginia most of his life, also loves fishing Western US waters – especially the Rockies, Cascades and Sierras. Author of the First in Class book: “Fly Fishing the Blue Ridge Parkway”, Forwarded by Mark Woods, Superintendant of the BRP, published by Mountain Arber Press, and reviewed by American Fly Fishing Magazine
