Certified Fly Casting Instructor
Master Casting Intructor
For a guide who as a young boy remembers fishing with a cane pole using hot dogs as bait, Jim Sommercom has come a long way. But that early ingenuity served him well in later endeavors. As a biochemist, he researched the cause of Type 2 Diabetes in the Pima Indians of Arizona
and enjoyed a long and distinguished career as a scientist. He brings the same attention to detail to understanding Idaho’s waters. His best guiding memory is the day that he successfully taught a guest some new presentation casts that ultimately helped her land some difficult fish.
In one word: Teacher.
