AL QUATTROCCHI (AKA AL Q)
has been a saltwater fly angler and fly tier for over thirty five years. He has been an advocate for education and the environment by creating fly fishing events to help introduce others to this great passion he has for flyfishing. His personal mentors include Neal Taylor, Lefty Kreh, Nick Curcione and Bob Popovics.

Al is a two-time, IGFA world record holder, breaking two records in the same day. He was recently awarded the Ross Allen Marigold Complete Angler Award by the historic Pasadena Fly Casting Club.

His articles, photography and fly patterns have been published in many prominent fly fishing magazines across the country. Al is a licensed and bonded fly fishing guide that prefers teaching strategy over guiding.

Al founded the popular One Surf Fly in So Cal which lasted nine seasons and raised thousands of dollars for non-profits and flyshops up and down the coast.

Al and fly celebrity friend, Conway Bowman teamed up to host the Carp Throw Down at Lake Henshaw, San Diego. This original, catch and release carp tournament founded in Southern CA that helps support veterans through their annual raffle.

Al and master FFF MCI instructor, Jim Solomon, teach fly casting techniques to anglers around the world through a program they designed entitled The FlyZone. One of Al’s most famous fly fishing students is Jimmy Kimmel.

This March you might see Al’s name in Tail Magazine as a regional editor for the West Coast. Tail is a bi-monthy publication and the premiere magazine for Saltwater fly angling in the country.

Al is also a professional photograher and fly tier. He has had many fly patterns featured in the Umpqua Feather Merchants catalog and flyshops in California.

Although Al has fished in many places, his passion is still sight fishing the beaches of Southern California for corbina in the shallow summer surf. He has recently self-published his first book entitled, The Corbina Diaries, which is the first in-depth work on this popular surf species.
