'Ghost of the Coast’ ... Sightfishing for Corbina
The Corbina is the West Coast version of a Redfish or Bonefish, and is similar in shape and size.
Glenn Ueda, our guest speaker this month, is an expert on sighting and catching Corbina in the surf. He is the holder of multiple IGFA records, and is an accomplished guide and instructor on surf fishing.
Glenn started surf fishing at a very early age under the watch of his father. At the age of five he was hurling pyramid sinkers for surf fish throughout the beaches of southern California. Many years later he read an article on fly fishing in Sports Afield and soon began his passion for the sport of fly fishing. He learned how to cast from a family friend who would take him to the Long Beach Casting Club. Soon Glenn fished local parks and the west fork of the San Gabriel River for many fresh water species. However, saltwater was in his veins, and as he grew older his passion turned back to the ocean"
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, firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
