JP Ross Builds Custom Fly Rod for Saltwater Fly Rodders

For a recent fund raiser, JP Ross built and donated a saltwater fly rod for the Saltwater Fly Rodders club. Here is a link to their very informative web site.

Saltwater Fly Rodders Pacific#1 was formed in 1968 and has since then been the only club on the west coast devoted solely to saltwater fly-fishing.

Many of our past and present members pioneered saltwater fly fishing on the west coast and in Mexico during the ‘50s and ‘60s when saltwater fly fishing was virtually unheard of.

The club’s membership numbers around fifty. We are from diverse backgrounds, but our main fishing interest is saltwater fly-fishing. We have plied our sport worldwide, fishing in locations such as Thailand, Australia, The Seychelles, the Pacific Islands, Baja (both in the Pacific and the Sea of Cortez. We can’t leave out mainland Mexico (the Pacific and Caribbean, Belize, Costa Rica, Honduras, Panama) and Canada.

Our members have fly-fished both inshore and off shore on most of the coastal areas of the US. We look to ply the art of saltwater fly-fishing whether inshore, off shore, or blue-water.

As a club we support a variety of educational and conservation efforts to protect our saltwater fisheries and to promote saltwater fly fishing as a sport. Our members participate in many shows, especially when they are held in the Southern California area. We conduct fly tying demonstrations, slide shows and seminars – all related to saltwater fly-fishing.
