You can pretty much say that Alex was born with a fishing rod in his hand. He caught his first fish when he was only two years old with his Grandpa Joe. When Alex was six years old he learned how to fly fish the streams and lakes near Mammoth lakes with his Father. Any chance Alex got to fish he would take it like before school at a local pond for bass or venturing offshore to chase Tuna and Sharks. At the age of 18 he moved Mammoth Lakes and went to the Clearwater Guide School to chase his dream of being a fishing guide. In 2014 he moved back to Southern California to guide the local inshore and lakes. Over the years Alex honed in on the local Southern California and San Diego bass lakes and in shore bass species. Alex is now proud to call The Fly Stop in San Diego home as head guide and manager of the store front.
