Monthly Meeting Tuesday May 12th, 2015 Guest Speaker Kevin Green
FLY FISHING THE SURF
Kevin Green is a long-time resident of Huntington Beach, CA. Kevin has been fly fishing and tying since 2003. Fly tying lessons at the Long Beach Casting Club planted a fascination with catching fish with his own flies. A 35 year obsession with surfing every weekend was soon replaced with a passion for fly fishing and tying. Most weekends, Kevin can be found on the local Orange County beaches stalking the surf for fishy looking structure and testing new fly designs and colors. Kevin is well-known in the Southern California fly fishing community for his Crabby Paddy surf pattern.
Kevin served as treasurer of the Southwest Council Federation of Fly Fishers (SWCFFF) for several years. Kevin is also a featured fly tying expert at the SWCFFF Fly Buy and Double Haul Ball.
Other regular pursuits include trout in the Eastern Sierras, spotted bay bass and halibut in the local bays and harbors, as well as Yellowtail and Dorado in the local blue water.
In spite of his compulsive obsession with all things fly fishing, his wife and two kids appear surprisingly well balanced and accepting of his "vice."
