Gary and Theresa were devastated to learn that their home, woodworking shop and all their tools and possessions were completely destroyed in the Thomas Fire of Ventura County, just weeks before Christmas. Many friends and family have asked if they can help in any way, so we have set up a campaign to help them begin the next chapter of their lives.
Funds donated will be used for supporting them with essentials while they sort through the steps necessary to begin the rebuilding process. We are so deeply grateful for your love and support.

I had the great pleasure of hanging out with our buddy, Pete Gray (host of Let’s Talk Hookup) this past Sunday to talk saltwater flyfishing on the Mighty 1090am for two hours. Rocking Rick Reda was unfortunately not in studio, we missed him, he was offshore on the Royal Polaris pulling on two hundred plus pound yellowfin tuna, LOL, hey, someone has to do it. Anyhow, if you missed the early radio show on Sunday, here it is on the archive podcast, hope you enjoy! Tight lines…
I had the pleasure of meeting fellow Long beach Casting Club member, David Dywer last night and he shared a wonderful story with me of his recent 22 pound halibut that he landed on one of his beautifully tied, Thunder Creek style flies. This was truly a trophy on the fly rod and I wanted to share this fantastic catch with all my saltwater friends. Even though our local surf hasn’t be productive the last few years doesn’t mean there aren’t trophies lurking in the troughs…if your not fishing, your not catching! way to go David!
I will be speaking tonight at the Long beach Fly Casting Club and doing a basic presentation on Surf Flyfishing the Beach, plus some shooting head casting techniques (The Tango), which can be used for fly fishing off a boat as well and I will be tying my “Qs Beach Bug” surf pattern. Hope to see ya tonight!
Also I will be on “Lets Talk Hookup” Sunday morning on the Mighty 1090AM out of San Diego to talk shop with Pete Gray about Saltwater Flyfishing. Tune in if your up early from 7am to 9am.
here’s a great example of how to put the fly right in front of a bull redfish. The angler is my friend Larry Acord and I can attest that Larry has put in the time this past year practicing and analyzing his casting. This was not luck, this was creating your own luck by being prepared. Nice job bud, glad I got it on video…
Dan Blanton and Noel Guzman did a great job this year raising money for the fight to keep the striped bass a gamefish in the CA delta.
