Due to parking restrictions and beach permits, our Torrey Pines beach location has been changed to Mission Beach. Mission Beach was our original location four years ago and was able to handle the parking without any problems. Should be a fun morning. Our raffle will be off the hook, no pun intended. More info to follow, please stay tuned…

Please pass this along. Thursday the 15th is the burial at Holy Sepulcher in Orange at 10am. Friday the 16th is the big one at Saddleback in Lake Forest at 10am in tent 2. Thursday will be usual service attire but Friday is going to be more like Hawaiian shirts/shorts or slacks type of thing. The Saddleback Church is the large one in Rancho Santa Margarita!
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.
