Ending the year with a true SoCal trophy from the beach, Jim Solomon (theflyzone.com) getting it done in our local waters on the morning of December 31st, 2018. It was awesome to watch Jimmy land that beautiful fish. We were actually targeting them, they cruise our local beaches this time of the year when the water gets cold and the perch show up… as Steve Perry once said, “Don’t Stop Believing, Hold on to that Feeling!”

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 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.
We are going to the big pond! I will be doing the Southern California fly fishing club circuit this summer. For those of you that might want to try your hand in some saltwater beach fly fishing, I will try to take the pain out of it and break it down so you can be safe and understand all you need to know to DIY it and have fun…hope to see some new faces! 🙂 I will also have my new fly design, “Come Fly With Me” long sleeve shirts available for purchase, supplies are limited…

The 9th Annual Carp Throwdown brought to you by Conway Bowman and me is happening Saturday, June 3rd 2017 at Carp Headquarters, Lake Henshaw in San Diego. If you have never participated in this event, it is a blast and one of my favorite fishing events of the year. Its the place that the best carp fisherman all converge to highlight their skills and get drunk, LOL. Only kidding! Some of the best people I have ever met are at the CTD for sure, great group of guys and girls. There will be music and popcorn on Friday night and we have an amazing raffle to help support our good friends at Healing Waters. Thanks to all of our wonderful sponsors that help make this possible. Hope to see some new faces this year. Cheers
I hope some of you guys at this Saturday’s, Culver City Arts District’s Art Walk from 2pm to 6pm. I will be selling some of my fly fishing artwork and fly creations. I will have a few Gyotaku prints from my 12# line class world record calico bass (largest to date caught on fly) for sale.
I will also do some of my original colored pencil hand fly sketches (5×7 printed card stock, suitable for framing)
…and a few hand tied anchovies and squids in sardine cans…first come, limited supply (couldn’t eat enough sardines to make a lot more! LOL)
