|Bob Marriott’s Fly Fishing Store, in conjunction with Orvis, will host a benefit to support a scholarship fund in memory of the late Shane Chung. Chung, 46, a fresh- and saltwater fly-fishing fanatic and fixture and volunteer at virtually all casting and tying events, died unexpectedly. |
All proceeds of the June 28 event are earmarked for a college trust on behalf of Shane’s 9-year old son, Devon. Event hours are 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at 2700 W. Orangethorpe Ave., Fullerton.
Highlight of the fund-raiser is a $1,300+ one-of-a-kind Orvis Helios 2 rod with a black nickel Mirage reel, and a matching Hydros line donated by Orvis.
In addition to the Orvis outfit, a water color donated by John Williams will be one of several items up for auction during the day.
Other activities include presentations by Ken Hanley, Capt. Vaughn Podmore, Alex Cady and George Daniel.
Orvis’ Hutch Hutchinson will be on hand to answer questions including those regarding the sonic welded waders, new pivot wading boots, and new "Made in the USA" CFO reel.
For information and directions, call Marriott’s Fly Fishing Store toll-free at 800 535 6633.
