My buddy, Zino Nakasuji had been texting his reports to me the past few days and was getting a little frustrated, he was seeing fish and getting grabs but the fish were all unbuttoning. I can relate, believe me! Anyhow, I told him the meet me at one of my favorite spots this morning. I had spotted some fish there on Monday and I knew the tide would be perfect for seeing fish. I didn’t say catching because these fish can drive ya nuts! LOL We changed the fly to a little larger profile, still a size 6 but a wider, pink model. From the time we got to the spot, the fish were all over the place moving up and down. I was seeing fish all the way down the beach. We began working, casting, walking and stalking, trying to line up shots to multiple fish. I saw Zino get a couple of bumps, then bingo, he was on! His reel screaming and a big wake flying across the flat. After a few nice runs and a tug of war, Zino slid the fat fish onto the wet sand. He ended up going one for two this morning, landing a second fat fish that was fouled. Lots of shots, a few laughs and a little slight sprinkle of rain later, I waved goodbye to Zino as I had to get off to work. Great morning, mission accomplished and one stoked angler! Zino sealed the deal! Tonight I am off to Icast for a few days. I will be tying for Tuffleye, if any of you are around please come by and say Hi! Also this coming Saturday I am giving a corbina presentation to the Sierra Fly Fishers at the Long Beach Casting Club at 7pm, all are welcome!
