The Fly Fishers of Davis will feature Jay Murakoshi with a program Tuesday on Baja fly fishing.

The islands of Isla Cerralvo and Bahia de La Ventana have been Murakoshi’s home waters for the past 19 years. He has been fishing in Mexico for more than 34 years and runs an inshore fly fishing operation for beginners as well as advanced fly fishers.

These waters offer a choice of three types of fishing: blue water, rocky structures and sandy beaches.

There is a wide variety of species to catch in Mexico, including skip jack, yellow fin tuna, Sierra mackerel, dorado, wahoo, marlin, sailfish and the sought-after rooster fish. Murakoshi will cover everything that fly fishers need to know and do to have an enjoyable trip.

“By the end of the program, your arms will be aching,” a news release said.

He also will play a short video segment that shows feeding under water.

Murakoshi has been in the fly fishing industry for the past 37 years and was a commercial fly tier for 36 years, having tied for such notables as Lefty Kreh and Trey Combs. At one time or another, he has tied for most of California’s fly shops.

His patterns have been featured in Fly Fishing in Salt Waters, California Fly Fisher, Western Outdoors, North and Southwest Fly Fishing. He is one of the West Coast contributing writers for Fly Fishing in Salt Waters magazine.

He has developed a few top water bass patterns that are featured through his website, http://www.fliesunlimited.com. They are the CB Diver, Floating Minnow and the newest fly — The Hula Girl.

As a speaker, Murakoshi has been doing seminars and clinics since the early 1980s. He has spoken to thousands of people at numerous sportsman and fly fishing events. He is also on pro staff for half a dozen fly fishing companies, and he runs his own travel business.

For more information on Murakoshi, visit http://www.bajaflyfishingadventures.com. He also arranges trips to Honduras and Australia, Baja’s East Cape and Pesca Maya in Belize.

The Fly Fishers of Davis normally meet to swap lies and tell fish stories at 7:30 p.m. on the last Tuesday of the month at Holmes Junior High School, 1220 Drexel Drive, Davis. The meetings are free and open to everyone.

The club also provides a class in fly fishing, so those interested in learning the sport are invited to attend. For more information, call Lowell Ashbaugh at (530) 797-6722 or visit http://www.dcn.davis.ca.us/go/ffd.
