Hailing from Chico, CA, Hogan Brown is a name synonymous with Northern California fly fishing. With numerous signature fly patterns under his belt, a full guide schedule, a board seat on the AFFT, a family and an unwavering devotion to Notre Dame football and playing music, it's surprising that he still manages to find that elusive 25th hour in the day to get it all done. Hogan's expertise stretches from the battle hardened wild rainbows on the Lower Yuba to the monstrous stripers that inhabit the valley rivers and everything in between.
For trout, Hogan's been a leader on stripping fly patterns down to thinner profiles and sleek design. His legendary Hogan's S&M baetis nymph is a standard in every fly box in the West.
