October 10, 2018 – Greg Vinci
“Tail water in Central California with a small portion on Shad in American River.”
After graduating from California State University Sacramento, Greg worked as a commercial photographer for a few years and then went on to a career in marketing and wholesale distribution.
After twenty one years as the owner of Sierra Pacific Products, where he innovated many popular fly fishing tackle and accessory products, Greg has also kept his foot in the door of the fly tackle industry, so to speak, by continuing to develop fly tackle product lines on a consultancy basis for clients in the fly tackle industry.
In 2011 his product Insta-Set Indicators was selected by Field & Stream magazine as the best fly tackle accessory of the year! Greg is also is a signature fly tier for the fly tackle industry’s most prominent fly manufacturer, Umpqua Feather Merchants and his fly patterns can be found in many fly
shops around the country.
Since Greg sold the business in 2010, he has been able to re-establish a relationship with his first loves, writing & photography and his work can be now seen in many fly fishing and outdoor magazines. He has also just completed his first book “Flyfisher’s Guide to California” which was published in December of 2015.
In addition to writing and photography he also travels around California speaking to fly fishing clubs about some of the great fishing opportunities in the state.
Among the subjects that Greg writes about are fly fishing (of course), California history, and the California wine industry. He also created and manages the web site: www.california-flyfishing.com.
