Favorite Flies: How to Tie and When to Use 'Em

Lucky Ketcham, long time club member and leader of our Thursday night fly tying congress, will lead a presentation on an introduction to Fly Tying and give some tips on getting started.  He will be joined by club members and regulars at the fly tying congress, Mel Ochs (who hosts the congress zoom sessions) and  Richard Cullip who will demo some "go to" flies for the San Diego Bay. And finally, we'll hear Paul Woolery, who has for years created beautifully mounted salmon

flies to be awarded to members for their service to the club.  Paul will speak about tying "presentation" salmon flies.

Would you like to be a 3rd Wednesday Speaker ???

Our programs chairperson Tim Huckaby says:


We have so much talent and expertise in the club that we have decided to augment our “normal” club meeting and presentation (every 1st Monday of the month) with a mostly club member presentation on the 3rd Wednesday of each month this year. Those of you that have joined the virtual club meetings you know we have had a lot of success. We sure have learned a lot and been entertained by some pillars of the fly fishing industry. Honestly, it has been easier for me to recruit speakers to do virtual presentations because I don’t take them out of their day jobs for stretches of travel to San Diego. We’ll continue our “normal” first Monday of the month meetings with “big name” speakers, virtually, until we can finally meet in person as a club again….which is not looking like any time soon. We have quite the lineup scheduled already for 2021. It’s not the same as meeting in person. I get that. I miss meeting in person too. But, the virtual thing is gonna’ have to do for while until the world gets ahead of the pandemic.

So…I’m on the hunt for you experts in the club that would be willing to do a virtual presentation and/or virtual Q&A for us on a 3rd Wednesday this year. Please contact me by email, or my cell, 619-990-9200 to discuss. Don’t be surprised if I find you with a little help from other club members and proactively reach out to you for the ask.
