Lee Baermann Fly Fish The Surf BookWelcome to FLY FISH THE SURF. I am a full time fly fishing in the surf guide in an area blessed with some of the West Coast's best fly fishing in the surf and outdoor scenery.

My name is Lee Baermann and I fly fish the surf over 300 days a year. As a fly fishing in the surf guide, I know where the fish are, what techniques will work and which flies will catch them. As a client you can expect a friendly, informative and fun day on the beach. 

If you are not set up for the surf; rods, reels and stripping baskets are available while I will supply the Surf Flies and leaders for the day. We'll also go over how to read the water, look for holes, troughs and fish the "rough" water. So it does not matter if you are an experienced fly fisherman or a beginner, I will accommodate your needs and fishing experience level.

I cover the northern end of LA County, all of Ventura County and the southern section of Santa Barbara County, so there's plenty of beach to fish.

Schedule is dependent on tides and weather although there are beaches that fish great at lower tides and ones that fish great at higher tides.  So either email me flyfishthesurf@yahoo.com or call (805) 486-8226 I am a Pro Staff member of both Rajeff Sports and Waterworks-Lamson Reels.
