Their favorite fishing spots include Lamar Valley, Yellowstone National Park, Hot Creek, the Madison River, and the Big Horn River. Dennis retired in 2008 after 38 years teaching U.S. History in the Los Angeles Unified School District. His son Ethan is also an active Club member. Dennis is also a longtime photographer and railroad buff.

2017 - 2018
Wenda Payan
Wenda is responsible for organizing PCC's Annual Fundraiser, an auction and raffle held in March of every year, as well as the raffles held at every monthly meeting. Wenda’s ideal vacation is a wilderness destination road trip with her camp trailer in tow and a trunk full of fly rods. She was introduced to fly fishing and fly tying by her father when she was a teenager living in the Eastern Sierra. After her husband, Paul, became interested in fly fishing, they signed up for classes at PCC. Paul and Wenda are now inseparable river partners, but still competitive with everything fishing, so it’s no surprise that Wenda warns Paul “game on” whenever they hit the water!

Adrian Uribe
Adrian Cid Uribe was born and raised in Northern California where he grew up fishing alongside his cousins and uncles as a boy. His passion for fishing expanded as he grew into an adolescent jumping at every chance he got to fish with his Uncle Manuel for steelhead, salmon, and stripers in the Sacramento, Feather, Yuba, and American Rivers. Adrian had to put his fly rod down temporarily to focus on his studies at UCLA, but returned to his passion shortly after graduation, when he moved to Miami to join the Teach for America program. Adrian took advantage of the many fly fishing opportunities available in South Florida, and now he enjoys both the fresh and saltwater water fly fishing the Los Angeles area offers. He has a particular affinity for fishing the rivers he once fished as a little boy with his spey rod. Adrian is an attorney practicing civil rights and criminal defense law in Pasadena.

Sam Hagen
Sam has been fly fishing for many years and is still humbled every time he goes out. Fly tying makes his ADD kick in hard, so he is a fly buyer rather than a fly tier. However, he enjoys the art of fly casting and loves this aspect of our great sport. He and his wife are empty nester's that live in Claremont, but enjoy their time with their adorable dog, Cash. Sam has been a Mortgage Salesman for over 20 years and often introduces his clients to our great sport.
