August Monthly Meeting

Speaker: Ernie Gulley

Ernie Gulley was born in southern California, and started fishing with his father as soon as he could walk.  At age seven, Ernie and his family moved to New Orleans where he learned how to fish Lake Pontchartrain for speckled trout and other saltwater species.  Later he moved back to SoCal and began fishing Lake Crowley, Bridgeport Reservoir and many lakes in Utah, Idaho and Nevada.  (Ernie currently resides in Riverside with his wife Shannon and there two children, Logan, age 17 and Aidan, age 13.)

In 1997 Ernie’s curiosity about fly fishing began and a true love affair was born.  This love affair blossomed and he never looked back.  Ernie was mentored by Bob Slamal, one of Ernie’s legends in the fly fishing industry, and he also joined many local fly fishing clubs to learn as much as he could about fly fishing.  In 2007, Ernie won the “Double Hall in the Fall” tournament at Lake Crowley, now his home waters for guiding; this is where he won both individual and team division titles.  

Ernie 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.
