a very sad day…

April 30, 2014

yesterday for those that already do not know we lost our brother and fellow fly fisherman, Shane Chung at 46 years young to what seems like a massive heart attack. He leaves behind a beautiful wife Kim and son Devin. He was a loving father and husband, a great fly tier, teacher and ambassador to our wonderful sport of fly fishing. He always had a big smile and loved to joke around. He was bigger than life, always sharing and willing to help other anglers. He was a great part of the One Surf Fly and a close friend, we worked together from the very first one back in Dockweiler, seven years ago. I spoke to Shane the night before this terrible tragedy and he seemed in good spirits, we were going to get together after Mother’s Day to discuss the next OSF. I posted a few pics of Shane below to hopefully paint a picture of his larger than life personality. The last picture is one that is familiar to all who attended any One Surf Fly, Shane checking in everyone in the morning, nose to the grind stone. He will be missed dearly. As Billy Joel says, “only the good die young” We wish our prayers and condolences to his family and friends. We would like to have a get together to memorialize Shane for all to attend. Details are being worked out. Once I get the funeral arrangements I will post them as well. Rest in peace pal, keep an open spot for me at that deep trough in heaven… -Al Q

A celebration of Shane’s life will be held on Friday, May 16th at 10:00 am at Saddleback Church, 1 Saddleback Parkway, Lake Forest, CA 92630, Tent #2. Shane collapsed due to a brain aneurysm.

Well all I can say is that I am still smiling at the great turnout at Rincon Beach Park / Bates Road. It was our 7th OSF to date and a major group effort! We broke all OSF record attendance with 70 registered anglers. Shane Chung and the boys knocked out the check-in and fly picks in 45 minutes. Gary Bulla lead the 15 volunteer spotters down to the beach and we were rocking by 7:15 am. We ended at 9:15am. Thanks to all the volunteers for helping set up, spotting and scoring cards. There was a flurry of activity with many perch recorded. I will add totals soon! As you know we award a trophy in three categories: FIRST FISH caught was by Sam Michael at 7:16am using Julio’s Surf Rat fly submitted and tied by Julio Nuno, BIG FISH was awarded to Andy Malouos ( a 15.75 inch barred surf perch) on a Crabby Paddy fly submitted and tied by Kevin Green, MOST FISH was awarded to Southbay Flyfisher, Steve Hollowell (total 23 perch) on a Cento Crab fly submitted by John Kingsley, tied by Mike Centofani.
