Fly Fishers of Davis to talk about surf perch

By
From page A4 | April 25, 2013 |

Ever want to fly fish the Pacific Coast surf zone? You couldn’t ask for a more dynamic environment.

It’s likely to be one of your greatest challenges in fly fishing. The Pacific surf zone is one heck of a place to bring your flyrod. Don’t let that scare you — bring it on! There are plenty of places to fish the surf within a few hours of Davis.

Ken Hanley will speak to the Fly Fishers of Davis at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 30, in a presentation that will cover tackle, field tactics and target species for Pacific surf zone fly fishing. He’ll cover the micro-habitats of the surf zone, the best times and tides to fish and the species you can expect to catch. He’ll also show the flies to use and methods to fish them.

Hanley has been conducting fishing and adventure specialty programs since 1970. More than 15,000 students have taken advantage of his varied programs, both in the field and on the water. His award-winning instructional programs are well respected throughout the adventure industry.

He’s the author of seven books, including “Tying Furled Flies,” which was earned the Book of the Year Award (2008) from the Outdoor Writers Association of California. Hanley also writes and photographs for national and regional publications in the outdoor industry.

His extensive field experience spans the globe; from the highest peaks in Tibet and the Himalaya, to the remote wilderness regions of Asia, New Zealand, Mexico, Europe and North America. From panfish to roosterfish, he’s caught more than 90 different species of fresh and saltwater gamefish.

Hanley was chosen as the 2005 inductee into the NCCFFF Fly Fishing Hall of Fame. Since 1981 the Hall of Fame award has been presented to the individual who has made outstanding contributions to the sport of fly fishing. The criteria for this distinction include the improvement of the art, science, literature, techniques, enjoyment and conservation of fly fishing and the resource.

The Fly Fishers of Davis normally meet to swap fish stories at 7:30 p.m. on the last Tuesday of the month in the multipurpose room at Harper Junior High. The meetings are free and open to newcomers and guests. Anyone interested in learning to fly fish can come to the meeting and ask anyone about the introductory and intermediate Fly Fishing courses. The club is also working on a program for young fly fishers (under 16). For more information call Lowell Ashbaugh at 530-797-6722 or visit the club’s web page at http://www.dcn.davis.ca.us/go/ffd/.
