Fly Fishing Expert Danny Salinas
  • Danny Salinas

    I spent 10 years chasing the music dream playing bass for Cody Johnson, Josh Ward, Clayton Gardner and others, but most recently my career has been focused on the information technology realm as an auditor and consultant. While I do not travel nearly as much as I did when I was a musician, I do still get to travel all over the country for work. I've taken advantage of that to go fishing in a lot of places that I would ordinarily not have had the chance. I call New Braunfels, Texas home where I'm lucky to have a year-round trout fishery on the Guadalupe River and am just a short drive to the Gulf coast. I'm most knowledgeable when it come to fly fishing, however I also do a bit of conventional inshore saltwater fishing.

    So, what do I need from you? Be honest with me about what you are looking for, your timeline, your budget, etc. I'm a fly fishing expert, not a sales guy! I know this market well, and will always keep your targeted species in mind, as well as your wallet! I'm always happy to find something cheaper or put things on hold for a while if that's better for you! Just keep me in the loop!

    Morgan's experience with Danny
    I have shopped with Curated a few times now and every expert interaction has been wonderful. Danny Salinas was incredibly helpful and incredibly knowledgeable and made the process simple and stress free! I am confident that what I purchased is not only good quality, but is a good fit for my son as well. Thanks so much, Danny!

    Great to talk with
    Danny was great to chat with. I know if we ever met in person we would definitely hang out and cast some rods and jam to some good tunes. He made the experience easy for us as first time fly fishers moving to Alaska. I'm sure my girlfriend is gonna love her first fly fishing set up and her first time in alaska. We are stoked to put some fish on the table for dinner!

    Danny was great and very informative.
    He was very knowledgeable and answered all my questions. I can't wait to start my new hobby and bucket list of fly fishing. He recommended two fly field kits for Gulf inshore fishing and my Montana fishing trip in December. He didn't try to over sell me but he recommended some quality equipment that should last and get me started.

    Danny was great!
    Danny really found great gear for me. I had a bit of a budget crisis there and so got the Redington rod and SA line elsewhere, but I was extremely impressed with how quickly he understood just what I wanted and also how quickly he responded to every inquiry. I will definitely seek out Danny in the future for my angling needs. Even though I had to buy elsewhere and save a few dollars, it was Danny who found the gear. Thanks again!

    Great dude knows his stuff!
    Never touched a Fly Rod, but Danny was able to help me get headed down the right track, and help me purchase some items in my budget. He sent videos and a bunch of information for my dive into fly fishing. Highly Recommended.

    Danny was awesome!
    I came into this with very little knowledge about fly fishing. Danny not only helped with finding the right gear, he also price matched, found deals, taught me a lot, and was super easy to communicate with. If you’re looking for someone who knows what they’re talking about, he’s the guy!
