SALTWATER FLY RODDERS PACIFIC 31 WINS TOURNAMENT

On August 8th the First Annual Beyond the Breakwater Offshore TYD ( Tuna, Yellowtail, Dorado)Tourament  was won by Pac#1 members Mike Forrest, Dave Yellow TailWratchford, Rocky Tussey and Steve Petit.  The day was a bit lumpy and most fish on the near banks had lockjaw .  Fortunately, one 7 lb yellowtail ate one of our flies 15 minutes after the tournament started.  Unfortunately, for us and all the rest of the contestants the remainder of the  day was a big donut for flyrod fish.  The Pacific One Crew was not aware of that fact until after we came back to the dock and went to the Barbecue.  It made a long generally fishless day a little brighter as we walked away with a nice trophy, a Bluewater flyrod ( TFO), Bluewater Reel ( TFO), Abel Reel, 60 lb Boga Grip, a big Cam Sigler Waterproof Boat Bag, a bunch of lines and other neat stuff.  John Loo ( lifetime club member) deserves a major pat on the back for organizing two great tournaments ( inshore tournament held in June) The club  will announce next year’s tournaments well in advance in hopes that more club members will participate.
