Certified Fly Casting Instructor
“I can guarantee any of my guests that after a day on the river, they will have learned something new and caught plenty of fish in the process.”
The great charm about fly fishing is that
we are always learning.
Matt Curci’s family has a long history in Sun Valley. Though a native of Santa Cruz and California’s Bay Area, he has always had close ties to this area as his grandmother moved here when the Resort opened more than 75 years ago. He did not learn to fish in our region’s storied waters, however.
As a child, his stepfather put him in easy fly water all over the Sierras and taught him the fine art of tying flies. Matt is a complete convert to our area’s rivers, however. He loves the swarming hatches on the Big Wood, the snobbish fish on Silver Creek and all that the area’s smaller streams offer an adventurous fisherman.
