Name: Kayla Katayama

What city/state do you reside?

Attending college in Chico, Ca.

What rivers or lakes do you fish?

On a regular basis I fish the Sac river, Feather river, Trinity river, Lake Oroville.

What is your favorite fish to hunt?

My favorite fish to hunt is bonefish, also known locally in Hawaii as O'io. I love chasing this species because it's a screamer on the reel, and will make you work your hardest stalking them on sandy flats or sharp coral reefs.

How long have you been fishing?

The first thing my dad bought me when I was born was a conventional fishing pole. I grew up on Oahu learning to love and appreciate fishing. I began fly fishing about four years ago, and haven't touched a conventional rig since!

What would be your dream fishing trip?

My dream trip would be to travel to Mexico in pursuit of targeting roosterfish on the fly.

What is your favorite FECO gear?

Definitely my lucky Billy brown trout hat! I also love my women's rainbow trout t-shirt!
