Peninsula Fly Fishers

June "Surfs-Up" Workshop

  • June 05, 2014
  • 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
  • HCC


With California fresh water at all time lows it just makes sense to head out to the coast.  Less than an hour's drive from almost anywhere in the Bay Area the fish are nearby.  Sure it can be a challenge - so come to the workshop and get some tips.

We welcome Shawn Reese from the California Fly Shop located in San Carlos.  He has offered to be our guest tier this month.  The following fly's will be tied and the material listed so you can bring your own or what ever you have that may be similar. Shawn will bring some extra material for anyone that may need it. This should be a fun evening.
