Casey Rolig of Buff on the Napa River, CA

Casey Rolig of Buff on the Napa River

Episode Summary

On this episode of the Fly Fishing Journeys podcast, we are in the San Francisco area, in the Napa Valley on the Napa River, podcasting right on the river.

I was honored to get an invitation from Casey Rolig of Buff to fish for Striped Bass on the Napa River. Casey is a passionate fly fisherman. He covers the opportunities available on the Napa River as well as the greater San Francisco and Northern California areas.

Sun protection is crucial for the amount of time we as fly fisherman spend on the water. As a die-hard fan of the Buff products, I additionally asked him to review the Buff line up. When you combine sun-protection and style, no one does it better than Buff.
