    Four years ago I decided to focus my angling efforts on fly fishing, which was further compound by reports of this elusive "ghost of the coast." Restricted to only weekend mornings, and my mule-like stubbornness to catch my first one on the fly, it went something like this.

    2017: What am I looking for/at?
    2018: I see corbina!
    2019: I spook corbina.
    2020: I snag corbina.
    2021: I caught a corbina!

    Countless hours of reviewing books, blogs, podcasts, seminars, SDFISH and IG insider tips, and it all came together yesterday, as a I saw a hungry pack staging for the next wave and casted into their trajectory.

    Very nice post! Good job. If I ever start I'm at least a year away from starting to spook them. Been interested but not enough I guess. Also , I thought you were an old guy. Congrats on being young too!

    Fantastic! Great job, man!
    I’ve caught a few beans but only tried the fly this past year. Was a feat I was unable to pull off before we left CA, but I am very stoked for you and your perseverance paying off. Hope it’s the first of many! Go get ‘em!
