For Our April 15, 2014 Meeting Wilderness Fly Fishers Presents: 

 Southern California's Carp and Bass

with Conway Bowman
“The most underrated fly fishery in Southern California is only a few steps out our backdoor,” says renowned SoCal angler, writer, and TV host, Conway Bowman. “It’s time to take a serious look at the warm water fly fishing opportunities we have right here."
     It is Conway’s unequivocal belief that carp and bass are both outstanding gamefish worthy of pursuit by any fly angler willing to think ‘outside’ the box. “All of us can explore the many accessible lakes, ponds, reservoirs and creeks in and around Southern California and enjoy wonderful, year round fly fishing.” 
     His presentation will take us through the basics of successfully targeting bass and carp on the fly as he explains the tackle, the flies and the best locations and times to catch these fish. And Conway will no doubt erase any reservations you might have about the fly fishing worthiness of what he unabashedly calls, “the great gamefish available all around us.”
