another fun day in long beach…

Just wanted to thank everyone again for being so giving and kind in joining us in our grass roots effort to perpetuate saltwater fly fishing off our local beaches. The day was filled with great information, talented instructors, enthusiastic participants and volunteers and it was FREE! It was a day of mentoring and hopefully you all made a few new friends and fishing buddies. Can’t say enough about Ken Yoshihara and Chum, Ken’s music was mellow and pretty, and CHUM, well let’s just say they blew the doors off the Long Beach Casting Club. They were awesome! Here’s a few pics to burn into our memories. Hope to see ya’ll on the beach for the One Surf Fly in Huntington Beach on April 27th. Tight Lines! -Al Q
