'Ghost of the Coast’ ... Sightfishing for Corbina
The Corbina is the West Coast version of a Redfish or Bonefish, and is similar in shape and size.
Glenn Ueda, our guest speaker this month, is an expert on sighting and catching Corbina in the surf. He is the holder of multiple IGFA records, and is an accomplished guide and instructor on surf fishing.
Glenn started surf fishing at a very early age under the watch of his father. At the age of five he was hurling pyramid sinkers for surf fish throughout the beaches of southern California. Many years later he read an article on fly fishing in Sports Afield and soon began his passion for the sport of fly fishing. He learned how to cast from a family friend who would take him to the Long Beach Casting Club. Soon Glenn fished local parks and the west fork of the San Gabriel River for many fresh water species. However, saltwater was in his veins, and as he grew older his passion turned back to the ocean"
