Monthly Meeting October 14, 2014

 Join us at 6pm for a fly tying demo, general meeting at 7pm

Alex Ramirez began his fly fishing career on the South Fork of the San Joaquin River at the age of 10 chasing wild trout. This youthful passion soon found him testing his skills for bass at the local lakes and golf course ponds. Alex went off to study biology at Stanislaus State University but you could always find him perfecting his skills on the local waters every weekend. Prior to his residence in San Diego Alex worked for a Northern California fly shop where he shared his passion for the sport by teaching numerous classes on tying, basic fly-fishing and still water tactics. In addition, he guided anglers on the Stanislaus River and was lead instructor for the Boy Scouts of America’s fly-fishing merit badge. With 28 years of experience fishing freshwater Alex shifted gears toward saltwater and became one of So Cal Fly Fishing Outfitters lead instructors for fly-fishing the local surf as well as Mission Bay. He continues to share his passion for the sport as a Rep for some of the major brands in the Industry such as Sage, Redington, RIO, Smith Optics, Outcast Boats, Tibor Reels, Solitude Flies. 

Alex will be showing a short video that takes us through Sage and an informative video about choosing a fly line and understanding line weights. He will follow up by showing us and talking about new products from Sage, Redington, RIO and other companies he reps.
