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!”
This past Saturday, Jim Solomon and myself had the opportunity to complete a two day “fly fishing the beach” Fly Zone course with some of the fine folks at the Pasadena Fly Club.
We started at the casting pond and went over the casting stroke and learning to cast and manage a sinking shooting head, knots, tackle, flies and techniques which included a slide presentation. This past Saturday, we all met down at the beach to practice some of the skills we covered which included casting and reading water. Learning the proper skills and techniques necessary to be a successful angler on the beach is something that will make every angler better when they return back to a creek, lake or river.
