Todd “Slim” Cancilla has been a full time professional fly fishing guide since 1993. He makes his home in Redding Ca. and guides 200+ days a year. Slim spends early Spring through late Summer on the Lower Sacramento River targeting trout and occasional steelhead, then switches to the Trinity River from early Fall through the end of Winter to fish exclusively for steelhead. Slim spent the first 11 years guiding on the San Juan River in Northwest New Mexico where he became an expert at helping clients catch hard to fool trout. Slim brought that technical knowledge and experience to Redding in early 2004 when he moved with his wife back to Northern California. Slim is now an independent guide and outfitter and gives 110% to make sure his clients have the best possible experience on the water and go home with memories to last a lifetime.
Slim has been fishing Hatch Reels exclusively since 2010 because its the best, “ I expect my gear to perform flawlessly 100% of the time, regardless of the conditions or circumstances, period. Hatch Reels do that for me and my clients every day on the water when it counts. You don’t want to lose the fish of a lifetime due to equipment failure, I don’t have to worry about that with these reels “. Slim is proud to be a member of Hatch Reels ProStaff.
