Fishing Manager: Matt Brooks
Matt's love of fly fishing started after he took a FF101 class in the Baton Rouge store. Since then, he fishes local public and private ponds. When he gets the chance, he loves to travel to east Tennessee to catch native brook trout. Over the past year, he has been sight fishing for redfish from a kayak in the Louisiana marshes. He also has found a love for carp fishing in the canals around New Orleans. Matt is thrilled to now be the fishing manager at the store where his love for fly fishing started. His main goal is to help people grow in a lifelong passion for fly fishing, and to pass down the sport to the next generation. Matt lives in the Baton Rouge area with his wife and two kids.
