Steve Crosetti “CRO” was born and raised in the Bay Area,but grew up hunting and fishing the local waters and lands of the North State for 20 years.  In 2004, Steve moved his young family to Redding, CA in pursuit of a better life closer to his fly fishing passion.  Steve has spent the past 17 years,educating at kids camps, teaching, instructing and promoting fly fishing and casting through countless hours of guiding.  He’s a FFF certified fly casting instructor with Fly Fishers International and spends summers guiding in Alaska at HooDoo Lodgemojobella@gmail.com | 530-333-3484       

Dennis Franco “Popeye” has been guiding longer than the fish have been swimming.  All kidding aside, I’ve known popeye for more than 18 years now and he has been not only a good friend but an inspiration for guiding.  With more than 30 years of guiding experience in California, Alaska and beyond he is a consummate professional and friend.   Popeye  has been at HooDoo Lodge in Alaska since its inception.  Years ago he guided me and my dad and has continued to mentor me ever since.   530-524-9901
