A serene gathering area set amongst the oaks, a warm moist breeze, and a group of lively feathered friends above, the setting was absolute PERFECTION. Thank you to all of the Pasadena Casting Club members, especially President Wenda Payan, for your gracious hospitality. I look forward to collaborating on more projects in the future! Life is great .

So enjoyable, being able to share my passion for fly fishing with so many of my member friends in the Orange County Fly Fishers. Having fresh, hours-old data and strategies from a productive morning session made it all the sweeter. Tons of great questions, a load of laughs, and a fantastic buffet, I greatly appreciate the opportunity to hang with old friends and make new ones. Life is great 🌊🎣🐟☀️🤙😁

THANKFUL

Enjoying the easy drive up the coast, it was so enjoyable stopping along the way to visit the many areas that had the potential for sightfishing corbina, many of the same beaches I had grown up fishing as kid. The memories flowed as I remembered the clamming and campfires, the hot dogs and hot bites. Still rich, of the seven beaches checked, all but one held fish, which was impressive considering the tide. Content, the stage was set for the following morning and after a fun evening presentation to my gracious hosts, the Santa Barbara Flyfishers, it was off to bed for an early date with our coveted species.
.
Already steamy, rolled up onto the beach of choice and the gateway I saw yesterday during high tide was now fully visible and just beginning to fill. PERFECT! And soon they rolled in and up to the foamy edge in waves, and an oblique cast gave me the best chance of showing it to more than one........ and it took all of one cast. BINGO! A feisty teen bean, it fell off after a gallant battle as I was beaching it but that's fishing. .

Made up for it and landed the next three corbina including a real drag-screaming stunner conservatively estimated in that twenty inch class.

The tide continued to push in and it wasn't long before the sun began to peek out and the next "bean" gave me the 'ol "bit and spit" but the last one stuck and showed off her silvery sides in warming sun. And another fine So Cal morning it was............

a beautiful hybrid salmo trutta marmoratus / fario 30 cm 🎣 #dryflyfishing #flyfishing #catchandrelease
#flyfishing #thepalmdubai not easy at all. Fish gets spooked easily. Stingrays are hunting on shallow water. Got a few fish in hand and missed a big one which took off with my baitfish fly #hardyreels #orvis #orvishelios

From Santa Barbara to San Diego, the next two weeks are going to be a BLAST presenting "Ghost" to fly  fishing clubs throughout Southern California. Fly fishing for corbina has been absolutely PHENOMENAL with many of our past attendees landing their first corbina on fly! 
Approaching mid-season, my presentation will be updated to include new images and strategies. All of these FREE seminars are open to the public. Hope to see you there! 🌊🎣🐟☀️🤙😁

TBT to last season where a focused shot of the Boga Grip would have seen this stunning 26.5" 6 lb 8 oz "ghost" absolutely crush the IGFA 2# Tippet World Record. We kept it revived in a shallow pool between measurements so it swam away healthy and that is truly what counts.

Straight outta Africa, the latest issue of The Mission just hit my inbox and lo and behold, they have their own sweet version of a California Corbina! Seems the author knows about our local beans too! Love the ghost and permit references lol! Anatomically similar even down to the barbel. Hit them up at www.themissionflymag.com to read all about it and whole bunch of other very cool species 🌊🎣🐟☀️🤙😁

Me and the Helios ZG on a super secret extinct volcano lake. (My guide couldn't take me on Arenal because CR's Coast Guard had most operations shut down.) I was a little bummed to not have the guide with me on a big boat, but being literally the only one on this lake surrounded by jungle was incredible.

And about when the tide turned, Mister Sun decided to light the fuse, igniting the sky like a Fourth of July celebration. Completely different than yesterday, this stretch of coast is notoriously technical as packs of ghosts fire up onto the shallow angled ledge wobbling as they feed momentarily in the pushing surge then gliding back down with the receding wash back into the waist deep trough...... all in less than it takes to say California Corbina.
.
Now completely out of sight, if you can moonwalk while judging their pace and trajectory, you might have multiple shots. I managed to get things right three times; breaking off the first one, a real giant when the leader loop broke at the fly line. Yeah, that was me cursing three hours ago.....
.
Twenty minutes and multiple packs later, I stuck the second but a quick head shake and lip flare and she spit the bug right back at me.
.
With crowds of beachgoers now arriving en masse and stomping into the day's favorite section, I went west thinking the ghosts might be avoiding the pressure and sure enough a pair came to visit and BLAM it was game on! Terrific run towards deep water, I set the hook a few times, and knew it was going to be a tough time landing her in the shore pound.....but we managed. To the young lady wearing the stars and stripes patterned one-piece, thank you for capturing the moment on this special day. .

Happy Independence Day to all of my fellow Americans.

FULL HOUSE (cont)

...............With the area going dry, the nearest rip was the best option so some searching casts were in order and rewarded with pair of small wiggly yellowfin croaker. COOL! The next bean, another feisty adolescent, spit the hook as it was coming ashore, so NO TOUCH = NO COUNT, in my book. Capped things off with an epic eat tight to the bank just as the sun peaked through the coastal haze, yet another chunky backyard bone. Out of time, with fish still showing, I was more than happy having been dealt a fine full house on a beautiful Tuesday morning.

FULL HOUSE
.
A bean clam carpeted tidal zone, a truckload of neoprened wrapped surfers, and  an eighth of a mile of prime corbina real estate, the balmy morn was off to a fine start. Got things rocking when a slight wake pushing eastward into the falling tide turned into the first eat, a clean teen bean just full of piss and vinegar. .
.
With a couple others blowing up the pool during the battle, I left and the hunt resumed in the still grey, with the next section, a wide shallow swale, revealing the back of a GOOD one as it crawled over a sand bar to get to the soon to be closing buffet. Aired out a big loop and let the fish approach, and though I lost sight of this beauty, I began the strip and BOING, everything got real tight then came an explosive run ZZZZZZZZZZZZ - ZZZZZZZZZZZZ - ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ across the shallows. Three nice runs and she came ashore for pics.................

Dark, flat light, big surf, tight windows, it all adds up to a tough "sightfishing" session.... so look for sign where you can see. Here are a pair of corbina carefully pushing west in an inches deep receding flow where it meets an incoming wave. They gave me the snub as did the other ones I saw LOL 🌊🎣🐟☀️🤙😁

20 MINUTES

Having arrived in the dark, I found last week's "cut and trough" had vanished, replaced by a much different piece of structure, a shallow swale, some distance away. With nothing else worth staking out, the wait began and just as the sky became a lighter shade of grey, I spotted a VERY slight push from a feeding corbina as it surfed up and through the six foot wide glassy section between shore and the next wave. Going with my back up today, the Recon flipped the fly up onto the crab bed, the swash covered it and with a slow strip we were ON! A gallant splashy fight this teen bean had little to work with in the way of depth having sacrificed hunger for safety and so with a little side pressure, she slid up the sand. At the far east end, that section was filling in as well, and right on cue here comes another push but that one gave me the 'ol "bit and spit" and that was the extant of the morning. 20 minutes is about all the time there was before the south swell overwhelmed the shallow pool in which the couple were feeding. I'll take one for two any day of the week.

Here's a new fly that I've been massaging over the past couple of seasons. This year it has already accounted for a bunch of beautiful corbina. Seeking a tie that would complement my own versions of master tier Paul Cronin's Surfin' Merkin, this pattern includes some different features and triggers that corbina seem to like. A contrasting fluffy synthetic-fibered body, swimming silicone clawed legs, contrasting mono eyes, front and back ultra chenille walking legs, and a bright hot spot tail to create a target and increase the fly's sandy "smoke trail" as it chugs along the bottom.
..
The hot spot is a small custom powder-coated @flymenfishingco Fish-Skull Shrimp & Cray Tail attached in a position reversed from that suggested by the manufacturer.
.
The body is constructed of white @epflies Tarantula then enhanced with light grey marker to mimic the natural grey top/white belly of the natural.
.
Taking a cue from a successful gear fishermen I know that makes regular catches of corbina on an all-white swimbait, I sought to add movement and vibration. The little "clawed" legs create a nice wiggle effect when stripped.
.
Medium black brass eyes, minimize tumbling by keeping the front end anchored.
.
Whether used as an early morning searching pattern in a deep rip or a sightfished offering on a shallow flat, it might just add a few more beans to your tally this season. Give the "Bean Counter" a try!

Are you ready for an extended season of bean stalking? Though just a shiny  lil' dude this was last year's closer way late on October 4th. So excited as weather models are already indicating the likelihood of another El Nino this fall. With an already stellar corbina season underway, this could be one for the record books! WOO-HOO!

..........inches of pure ghostly goodness this morning. Had to dodge moms and dads and the little ones too once the structure filled in. With those conditions came extra spookiness, necessitating long leading shots but even then there were plenty of blow ups. Missed one when it shook its head and another when its white lips double pumped, both rejecting the fake offerings. But we got it done, the first feisty girthy and dark, the next slim and banded with a crazy huge dorsal, and the last almost like a powerful silvery beige football. So cool! This season keeps getting better and better. Let's all hope that it goes into October like last year! Have a GREAT humpday everyone!

Exactly six short years ago to the day, the ONE that ignited my deep passion and pursuit of a wonderfully challenging species. During that summer of '13, I made exactly thirty-six trips and landed only three corbina, and though I don't gamble, I thought I had hit the lotto. Yeah, it was like that. I would occasionally find them and cast....then watch them swim away. Determined, I have since stalked hundreds of miles of shoreline annually, observing, and striving to be just a little better each time I stepped onto sand. With still so much to learn, the results of that journey are chronicled in my seminars. The only thing that I love more than sightfishing for corbina is inspiring others to do the same. Mid-circuit complete, I want to thank all of the fly fishing clubs and stores for providing a learning environment in which to share. These are the remaining seminars for 2018. Please come out and share your experiences. I would be honored to meet you.

WHY NOT.......

......it's Father's Day. A five hour wait following a drizzly arrival, the cut FINALLY filled in and they slid in and turned right at the kelp clump. Let them settle into their new accommodations then watched as they glided back out but returned, three turning into five targets. A long lead and BLAM but a sideways blast then violent handshake and the bug came flying at me. Rude. A short break and soon a smaller pair pushed in and TAILED. Moved upstream and the downstream flick did the trick. Thanks dad for not letting me quit.🌊🎣🐟☀️🤙😁

Thick haziness couldn't mask the entry point and soon enough, the tide filled in and the welcoming party arrived. Looking more like a winged grey skateboard, an absolute monster rolled in and ATE then did something that left me stunned in utter amazement. Now, these critters are down right smart as you may have guessed, but, how smart? More clever than your basic spooky bonefish, yup. On par with the ever wily permit, uh huh. Way beyond most carp I've met, without a doubt. Now hooked, this beast acts like a mossback yellow and runs straight for the ONLY mass of kelp on the flat and soon one of the strands slides down to the hook and it pops free.......UGH. All of the meditating in the world couldn't stop me from belting out a couple of choice expletives.

Helping to flush the sting, the tide soon rushed in, as did a couple handfuls of smaller grade, each pod giving up a sweet teen bean on either end of a shallow trough, with the grey bug enticing the first and pink the next. Capped it all off when a fast moving gang of yellowfin showed up with the pack leader grabbing a new bug I've been testing. I sure love summertime surf sightfishing.

. . B A C K Y A R D 🐟 B O N E S Thick haziness couldn't mask the entry point and soon enough, the tide filled in and the welcoming party arrived. Looking more like a winged grey skateboard, an absolute monster rolled in and ATE then did something that left me stunned in utter amazement. Now, these critters are down right smart as you may have guessed, but, how smart? More clever than your basic spooky bonefish, yup. On par with the ever wily permit, uh huh. Way beyond most carp I've met, without a doubt. Now hooked, this beast acts like a mossback yellow and runs straight for the ONLY mass of kelp on the flat and soon one of the strands slides down to the hook and it pops free.......UGH.

BETTER LUCKY THAN GOOD
.
Swellmagnet's forecast was again correct as the area of operation got pummeled by angry walls of water, each producing a leopard-spotted blanket of cottonball-like whiteness across the sand-churning shallow. With barely a clear window, today's hunt would be relegated to spotting surface swirls, pushes, and tails, so that's what I did for the next three hours. A mile plus double-covered, led to only a few pushes and one tail, a barely perceptible "tick" which didn't bother to stick. With the tide bottomed, finally observed a headstanding silver tail in a receding wave directly over a healthy tailgate-sized crab bed. Quickly flipped a short cast off to the right side and let the fly sink out so that I'd have the correct length of line extended for a follow up cast. But I never had the chance as that furry morsel resting on the bottom got SLAMMED, the H3 suddenly loaded up and fly line just flying off the little violet reel! Just sitting on the bottom and BOOM! A great tussle, this season's 20th bean wasn't a giant but I'll take these brain-twisting eye-burning butterballs all day, every day.

ROCK YOU LIKE A HURRICANE
.
The first of the season, Hurricane Alleta tacked west sending sizable aquatic vibrations northward overnight and a major surfer hatch ensued. Being a Sunday to boot, it was going to compound an already challenging task but we were there and we were going fishing BIG surf or not. Hopscotching groups of beachgoers, the lengthy morning stroll featured a few lazy targets barely glimpsed here and there, drifting about as the structure eventually went dry. A quick lunch and back to the best section of sand as the tide turned and whaddya know its void of trough stompers. NICE. The rising push swept way up the beach but there were small workable windows. And that's when a beautiful chrome-clad pair cruised straight in, then caromed westward. Ran down to the edge, dropped down, and fired a cast mostly parallel to shore, and with one long strip ............ ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ- ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ- ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ! Another sizable critter, this went a chunky 22". I don't often fish weekends, but when I do, I prefer that they end up like this.🌊🎣🐟☀️🤙😁

Strip-strip-strip, I've now lost sight of the bug and about the time the fly line is leaving the water's edge, she pulls in behind and EATS. Big white maw, line jumping out of the stripping basket, she's on the reel in a blink and into the backing bonefish-style. Four solid runs later I slide her up and no doubt, the largest of the early season so far. A young lady from a gathering audience did the honors, followed by nothing but cheers as this beautiful creature paddled off. Stoked. 🌊🎣🐟☀️🤙😁

A displeasing omen of sorts, I could hear the crunching surf before I stepped onto the sand. Ugh. Bundled up, headed into the chilly breeze and knew it was going to be a tough session. As far I could see, outside breakers rushed in creating a surging blanket of foam, coating the inner zone. Ahead, ran into the best fishermen on the beach busy dismantling his beachside breakfast, while a gang of gull onlookers cackled with envy. Donning my inner osprey, I found yesterday's rip had shuffled west and within it a swirling mass of rag kelp playing grab ass....and this is where they were.....all three of them cruising haplessly about. It took the better part of two hours for the tide to change their attitudes but when it did they surfed into the steep edge to dine and just as quickly they would ride the reverb back out to the safe zone. Somehow picked the right set wave, and right on cue, she angled her girthy self into the grainy swash zone, and the little grey merkin airborne above alighted perfectly, an adjusting drop and.....ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ- ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ-  ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ! A blur of violet, she had the little Galvan spinning wildly, the H3 throbbing with joy. Geez, I love this stuff. 🙌🌊🎣🐟☀️🤙😁

THREE BEAN SALAD
.
Probably the darkest start of this early season, it pretty much stayed that way until the tide bottomed. Took a few minutes for the ol' pupils to recalibrate and the stalking began. Started at yesterday's cut and the first bean rolled up, acted right, and ate. Left it so it could hopefully reload and a shallow bowl offered a big one but it spooked but its accompaniment musta been starving cuz it charged from five feet away and voila another teen bean! Kept hunting and found this sucking rip that would on occasion fill in. Thought I saw a JUMBO gliding by with its pecs flared, angled off a cast and got SMOKED, breaking off on the eat.......Not even this morning's sadhana could level my nerves after that one but a quick check of the earlier cut softened the blow as bean number three came into my life, quickly pouncing on the new bug. Tide turned and the heavy salad rolled in and blocking any further hopes of making a clean cast. So STOKED with the first trifecta of this early season!

Mondays are great
Water was smooth
Corbina were there 
Somehow hooked two
.
New beach presented a few shots and managed to convert them into a pair of solid grabs both right up on the skinny hissing edge. The warm suds really has them tugging hard each racing for the outer bar, unfortunately the tanker that ran into the backing fell off. No biggie,  I'll take ONE stunning backyard bone any day of the week! 🙌🌊🎣🐟☀️🤙😁
