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.

As always a big shout out to the passionate One Surf Fly team: Shane Chung (raffle master), Gary Bulla, Jim Solomon, Alex Ramirez, Conway Bowman & Michelle Bowman! Special Thanks to all of our main sponsors: Loop, Abel, Redington, Sage, Orvis, Flymen Fishing Co, Olson Visual ( banners and graphics), Enrico Puglusi, Dennis Harper, Bowman Bluewater & Simms and everyone else that donated great stuff and have supported us this year and past years! Thanks to Eric Rangel for hooking us up at The Barbeque Place to hold the raffle/award ceremony. Our epic raffle benefitted the Land Trust of Santa Barbara County. We awarded Ken Marshall from the LTSBC with $3265! Thanks to Jorge Salas and Kristina Kaufman for taking great pictures and always being there for us and to Michael Schweit and the Southwest Council for having our back.

Hope to see ya on new beach next year!

OSF_DHB3_2014_WEB

This coming Saturday, another great FREE lineup at this year’s Double Haul Ball brought to you from The One Surf Fly, SWFFF council and the Wilderness Fly Fishers. It’s a great time to dust off your shoes, meet new people and see old friends. All that volunteer their time at the DHB to teach and give back reinforce the great camaraderie we all share as fly fisherman! I am very proud of everyone that participates.  - Al Q

DHB_2014 Schedule   We are very fortunate to have a good buddy swing by and perform for us at lunchtime! His name is Chris Murphy and all I can say is if you attend you are in for a treat!
