Monthly Meeting June 10, 2014

The Corbina Diaries…
The fish you may or may not catch but will hook you for life! 

Presented by Al Quattrocchi

Are you up for a fly fishing challenge? One of the most understood fish that inhabits our local beaches during the summer months is the California Corbina. For years they were prized by bait fisherman not only as fine table fair but for their finicky behavior and explosive runs once hooked. They were always considered a by catch by fly rodders, mainly in deeper troughs that ran parallel to the shoreline. The past ten years have been a corbina sight fishing renaissance amongst a handful of dedicated anglers. We now target these fish in shallow water and get them to consistently eat properly presented flies under the right conditions. Al Q will discuss the techniques, tides and tackle you will need to learn to begin your new adventure to a world class fishery that exists only a few months each year for those up for the challenge, right at our feet on our local beaches. Stay thirsty my friends...

Al will be doing a tying demo from 6 to 7, the main meeting will start at 7.
