HomeSpeakers 2018


by Andy Frumento 

The FFCOC Speaker's Program has truly been an interesting and educational part of our monthly meetings.  Past speakers who have visited our club have been some of the best in the country. Speakers such as Lefty Kreh, AK Best, Gary Borger, Bob Clouser, Nick Curcione, Ed Jaworowski, Cecilia "Pudge" Kleinkauf, Mel Krieger, Maggie Merriman, Flip Pallot, Doub Swisher, Dave Whitlock and many more men and women have shared with us the best that the sport of fly fishing has to offer.

Today our Speaker Program continues to seek out some of the most dynamic speakers in the fly fishing industry.  In 2010 the FFCOC joined a consortium of seven other clubs that includes Conejo Valley, Golden State, Pasadena, Santa Barbara, Sespe, Sierra Pacific, and Wilderness Fly Fishers.  This consortium is the largest in the country, and it allows us to book international speakers as well as various speakers located throughout the United States.

Club speakers are obtained through several criteria and format, which includes a presenter that is educational, informative, entertaining, organized and professional.  Many of these speakers are conservationists, educators, equipment manufacturers, fishing guides, outfitters, writers, and self-taught fly fishers.  All eight consortium program chair people seek out these presenters through various media and personal contacts.
