Monthly Meeting February 2014
February 2014 Monthly Meeting
Nick Vargas is a guy that defines the term urban angler. You won’t likely find him on a guided bonefish flat in the Bahamas or on a private trout stream in Patagonia. If you want to fish with Nick, your destination is going to be a local park or one of our many southern California beaches. Nick’s introduction to fly fishing started at a local park in Pico Rivera, with a well known resident in the park that amazes people with his fishing and fly-tying abilities. Nick learned to catch carp on the fly before it was cool and as you can tell from his photos, he knows how to catch bass too. If you walk into the Orvis shop in Pasadena, you’ll usually find Nick helping a customer, whether it is a seasoned angler or someone just getting started. Nick is also an excellent surf angler and that will be the focus of his presentation for our club. Come to the meeting on February 11th and help us welcome Nick Vargas.
