Josh Smitherman

Born & raised in a small, Texas town called Cameron, with not a lot to do around town as a kid, the outdoors was always a great pastime for Josh.

He first picked up a fly rod when he was 18 and the sport has taken over his life since then. He is now lucky enough to travel all over the world in search of different species of fish.

This past year he was fortunate enough to become an Umpqua Signature Fly Designer; so when he's not traveling, he's either tying flies or wading around his local creeks looking for bass.
