    Default Let's help Jon B!

    You guys all know Jon Baiocchi, he posts here regularly under the Troutstalker handle, and is one of the best guides in the game. If you've fished the Lower Yuba, the Truckee, the Little Truckee, the Feather, the North Feather, the North Yuba, the Middle Feather, Lake Davis or Frenchman's, you've directly benefitted from his hard work through TU and other agencies to improve and restore the fisheries.

    Jon's truck and all his possessions / gear were stolen this am from a hotel parking lot in Sacramento as Jon was making the rounds speaking at various fly fishing clubs. We put together a fund to help patch things over for him in the short run until he can bounce back, please follow the link and share some love for someone who's worked tirelessly to help the fisheries we all use.

    Thanks for getting this going. Didn’t realize the extent of his loss. Donations made!

    Just flat out wrong what happened. Great to see everyone rallying to help Jon, one of the best ambassadors's for fly fishing and on top of that, a great man. He's a humble man, so great to see others who stepped up and created a way for us to get him some help in this tough time

    Done. Thanks for setting this up.

    Makes you sometimes lose faith in people, yet when the good ones step up, it gives
    you some faith back.

    Hang in there Jon!

    Simply one of the nicest most sincere guys I’ve met. Oh and he’s pretty good guide as well.
    Please donate if you can. I’m sure it all helps and get message out. This is a great community.
    Hang in there JB!

    UPDATE: The authorities have some very strong leads regarding my truck and gear.
    I cannot share the details at this time as it would comprise the case. I will be in Truckee for the next few days staying at some friends houses and meeting with council to plan a road map for the next few months or more. I'm completely blown away by all the support from all of you, it has been a real eye opener on just how much my presence in fly fishing and life has meant to you all. Thank you, lots of love to everyone - I'm one lucky dude! - J.

    Times of misfortune bring out the best in the best and the worst in the worst. Let's hope they catch the scumbags that made off with Jon's truck and gear.

    Really nice to hear all the support that Jon B has gotten and its no surprise given the positive influence he has in this industry and the type of person he is. What sort of low do you have to be to take somebody livelihood? Really sad. Certainly praying for a positive outcome to all of this.
