Audrey Wilson's Journey to 
CI Certification and Mental Management Program

Web Conference, via Zoom (See details below)


Due to the current Stay at Home order, our Monthly General Body Meeting will be conducted via online with a program called ZOOM.  To access the Zoom Meeting, please click the link below.

 

Audrey Wilson will be presenting her show remotely using the ZOOM platform and will leave time for questions at the end of the evening.






Audrey Wilson’s journey to CI certification, and competition success that led her to develop a mental management system; a system that can help any angler to mentally prepare for making that great cast to land that big fish! Join Audrey as she presents her system for success.

Audrey’s fly fishing journey began nearly 15 years ago. Her time on the water fly fishing allows her to disconnect and reflect, to be in touch with nature, to be centered, and to be her true self. She dreams of sharing that peace and unity with others. She began my Casting Instructor (CI) journey nearly 10 years ago. She is the first woman in Utah to get her CI. Her motivation, and dedication increased as her love for the art of casting grew over time. With that love grew her love for competing as well as her love for sharing it with others. Becoming a CI has enhanced her personal casting skills, as well as her ability to share and teach others. Becoming a CI has also allowed her the opportunity to be a part of a wonderful community of fly fishers, competitors, industry professionals, and more. Her short term personal goal is to start a journey in the industry as a career professional. She’s worked for the Air Force for 14 years as a business operations manager, and project manager and hopes to step away to apply her experience in the fly fishing industry. She is also the Casting For Recovery Utah Program Director, a non-profit organization she loves to support. Last, but not least, her continued success and accomplishments with the American Casting Association has sparked a passion, and goal to be a world champion caster in 2021!!

Thanks to our members and friends, the Pasadena Casting Club was able to host a successful fundraiser auction last month, in spite of the pandemic.  Owing to concerns about potential availability, we did not include the popular Trips & Lodging item category.  After consulting our generous donors, we have decided to hold a special online auction for a few trips, most of which are close enough to drive to and are available until the end of the current local fishing season, some until Spring of next year.

Many of us are champing at the bit to get out and wet a line - check out the available trips in the catalog, make some plans, stay safe  and tight lines!

Pasadena Casting Club is devastated to announce the untimely death of our Refreshment and Bamboo Chair Board Member, Chuck Swab. He passed away Tuesday night from a long battle of health problems.
Chuck was a long time member who would traveled all the way from Twin Peaks, CA to bring the club delicious treats at every monthly meeting. If you were lucky enough to taste one of his amazing desserts, then you left the meeting with a happy full belly. His bamboo rods were made with the utmost care and he engraved each one with your name. He continually donated his rods to our annual fundraiser, always supporting the club. He continually helped out with the youth committee went on many Yucaipa Youth trips.
He was a staple to the club and will be very missed.

 





Here are a few words from his best friend in the club, J.W. Healy:

I first met Chuck a few years ago when I joined PCC and was introduced to him as a fellow bamboo rod maker. We soon became friends, sharing rod making ideas and swapping stories about fishing and rod making. He had a doctor in Covina and would often stop by my house in Upland on his way too or from visiting the doctor. Sometimes he wanted to use some equipment but more often he just wanted to schmooze. I learned a great deal about him in these sessions. He didn’t have much but what he had he willingly shared with others. He frequently baked cookies and pies for his church’s get togethers and other charitable organizations in the Twin Peaks area. If anyone needed his help, he was there doing what he could. Chuck was a world class human being and we will miss him.
