Last year I had the good fortune of running into fellow fly angler, Steve Horgan at the airport in Oahu prior to flying to Christmas Island. Steve prides himself on going after multi-species on fly. Steve just returned from another epic journey and slammed many exotic species on my “Beach Bug” fly pattern. Thanks for letting me share these great pics Steve! I hope to join you someday, Beach Bugs on me,  grin…

Fly fishing the surf this morning out of Oceanside, our good friend Dustin Sergent nailed his PB halibut from the surf on one of my surf fly patterns, the Qs Beach Bug. Way to go Dustin!. “The halibut hit on the third cast into a lateral trough. Slammed it!”

As soon as I am comfortable with how this fly swims I will post a step by step. Still working out the kinks… 🙂

the mighty shad…

 

varoius mighty shads tied by Al Q using ep fibers, ostrich and sf blend. I usually weight them with a few turns of lead in the front part of the shank.

Local angler, John Whitaker with a nice Mexican largemouth bass landed on a Q Mighty Shad Fly last week. He was fishing some mysterious lake south of Puerto Vallarta.
