About ondafly

I have met some of the most amazing people through fly fishing. Paying forward all the knowledge and lessons I have acquired over my life is worth sharing. I continue to learn something new every day on the water. Fishing makes me happy and sharing it with good like-minded people is what it's all about. Life is short, smile each day, and have fun, hopefully near water.

Square Off3 – photo exhibit, last day, this Saturday.

If anyone is around this Saturday and find themselves near Culver City it’s the final day to view Square Off 3 photography show in person at the Helms Bakery’s Washington Corridor. The show is a square format that highlights architecture in and around Los Angeles and abroad. I created this show to help non profits and helped curate it. All photos are still for sale and help support a great cause. They make a great holiday gift. For more info and to see the remaining photos for sale please click here!

tail magazine

Hey gang:

As some of you may already know I am honored to recently become the new west coast editor of tail magazine. Tail is the premiere saltwater fly fishing magazine published out of Florida. Tail is a bi-monthly magazine with 6 issues per year. The July/August issue is the first break out issue on the west coast that I had a hand in making happen. I was honored to ask some of my good friends and fishing buddies to contribute fun articles on some of the cool fly fishing opportunities we have going for us on our salty west coast. Please pick up a copy online or ask your local fly shop to start carrying it. I am always looking for good content so if you write, saltwater fly fish and have a good idea for a west coast article, please let me know? You know where to reach me…tight lines…

pic of the day!

My friend Colin Sako getting it done with a pink Holy Moley fly and an old school Tom Morgan fiberglass rod. It was special for me to watch him land his first fair-caught corbina. For those of you at home a fair-caught corbina is a fish that legit eats the fly in its mouth. That’s what makes it special. We never post fouled fish on this website. We like to do it the hard way. LOL This fish was released immediately after the pic was taken. Photo by Al Quattrocchi

summer bassin…recap

Its been fun getting some of my friends on some solid bass fly fishing this spring. The morning surface bite is starting to wind down as the water temps begin to rise. Now all we need is the afternoon winds to lay down so our surf temps can rise and the beans can begin to do their thing… –Al Q
