About Trace Bright

Shop Manager, Guide

A Bishop native, Trace can either be found in the Fly Shop or on the water. Well liked for his positive and easy going nature, Trace will point you in the right direction with the right flies to make your fly fishing trip as successful as possible. A lot of our midge and successful patterns are tied by Trace right here in STM fly shop…
Sometimes, after he successfully takes many fish with one of his patterns, we arrive back at the shop from guided trips and notice in the fly bin a new invention of Traces that he has tied and named himself.

His patience, perserverance and competent fly fishing skills have led him to also be a fly fishing guide for the past two years. He enjoys tubing Crowley, hitting the prolific hatches on the Lower O, and hunting the large fish that run up the Upper Owens River. Trace specializes in beginner and advanced clients alike. He is full time on the STM team and a great asset to our business.
