UPDATED, June 15–Say good-bye to 95991 (or is that 95993?). That’s because one of the state’s preeminent anglers–Gary Dobyns of Yuba City–will be trolling south and taking center stage tomorrow evening (TONIGHT) at Anglers Marine in Santee. The reason, if you’ve been cloistered out on Lake Elsinore practicing non-stop for the CBC on June 25, is the inaugural 2010 FINS (Fishing Instructional Night School) where Dobyns will be the featured speaker.

Dobyns, of course, is the reigning U.S. Open champion, is the founder and designer of Dobyns Rods, and most notably, the man who forced the U.S. Post Office to deliver in Yuba City. It’s true, until Dobyns was named the “Best bass fisherman in his zip code,” he actually had to go to Marysville to pick-up his Ace Hardware and Bass Pro Shops catalogs.

But despite all that notoriety, the biggest benefit is anglers will be able to hear from him first hand; I presume ask questions; as well as enjoy a special barbecue hosted by Anglers Marine. I think we’re very fortunate to have the most recent U.S. Open champion in the Southland, and I’m told all are welcome (619-449-3474).

Barbecue starts at 6:00, seminar at 7 p.m. The address is 10960 Wheatlands Ave. Suite 101. Santee, CA 92071.

I’ll be leaving my zip code about 4:30 p.m.
