A Quick Trip to the Long Beach Casting Club

flyfishingIt was a long but fun day yesterday.  It began leaving Hayward at 4 AM for the Duluth Airport.  It was my first business trip since moving into our new home in Wisconsin.  I wasn’t sure how long it would take to get to the Duluth Airport nor what the parking scene would be.  I’m happy to report I was there, parked and checked in with Delta by 6 AM.  My door to my gate in 2 hours – that will work!


fly-castingI spoke to the famous Long Beach Casting Club in Southern California.  I spoke here years ago but the casting pond was out of commission and therefore it wasn’t that impressive.  Last night, when I spoke there it was a dream.  It’s a really classy facility with plenty of room to cast and teach fly fishing.


fly-fishing-presentationsI delivered “Streamer Tricks for More and Larger Trout”.  We had a solid crowd of around 60 people and they were one of the most interactive groups ever.  We had lots of fun and there were lots of good questions throughout.


Casting-ClubWisconsin to Southern Cal is a long way to go for a one night gig, but I really enjoy doing the presentations.  Like all my gigs, this was well worth the trip.  Covid took a toll on my speaking gigs and just happy to report they are coming back.  Teaching and sharing my knowledge through stories are my favorite part of my business.


If your fly fishing club or event needs a speaker keep me in mind.  You can find my details on my website under Booking Jeff.

    Hi Jeff. Rock Schumacher here. Was at the presentation that night. Just to confirm, you don’t use a leader when fishing streamers, just 0X tippet tied to the fly line. And also you always have 2 flies tied on? Thanks in advance for your time. It was an outstanding presentation!


  2. Jeff

    HI Rock,
    You are correct. Just straight 0X from the fly line. And yes, as long as its legal to fish multiple flies (most places not a problem) I have at least 2. And remember, always put the heaviest fly at the point.

I started fly fishing at age 7 in the lakes and ponds of New England cutting my teeth on various sunfish, bass, crappie and stocked trout. I went to Northland College in Ashland, Wisconsin, where I graduated with a Naturalist Degree while I discovered new fishing opportunities for pike, muskellunge, walleyes and various salmonids found in Lake Superior and its tributaries.

From there I headed west to work a few years in the Yellowstone region to simply work as much as most people fish and fish as much as most people work. I did just that, only it lasted over 20 years working at the Jack Dennis Fly Shop in Jackson, WY where I departed in 2009. Now it’s time to work for "The Man", working for myself that is.

I pursue my love to paint fish, lecture on every aspect of fly fishing you can imagine and host a few trips to some of the most exotic places you can think of. My ultimate goal is to catch as many species of fish on fly possible from freshwater to saltwater, throughout the world. I presently have taken over 440 species from over 60 countries!
