Ueda’s ‘Planet Carp’ splashes down in Pasadena

There are literally miles and miles of carp water throughout Southern California and beyond. Some of these watersheds literally untouched and ready to reward the intrepid fly fisher. 

Please plan on attending his presentation “Planet Carp” as Glenn Ueda will be sharing his experiences over the past decade, personal fly fishing tackle, and specific techniques when sightfishing for carp.

A native of Southern California, Glenn was introduced to surf fishing as a child by his father. Every Sunday, from Morro Bay down to San Onofre, they caught their own bait and targeted everything from striped bass to barred perch to corbina. Reading about fly fishing in Field and Stream, Glenn soon learned basic fly casting and tying at world famous Long Beach Casting Club, He was ten. A local pond provided endless joy fooling bluegill, crappie and bass. Almost five decades later following a rewarding career as an architect, he sought new challenges. Taking all of those cherished surf and freshwater lessons he built a very successful business “So Cal Flats Fishing Guide Service” teaching fly anglers the art of sightfishing in shallow surf for one of the world’s most challenging species, the California Corbina. Guiding highly skilled anglers from all over the globe, many agree after a day’ of stalking that they our “Ghost of the Coast” is as difficult if not worse than the very popular and highly coveted flats permit.
