  • Born in Buenos Aires in 1960 within a Spanish immigrant family, Garcia has been fishing since his early age of six. He discovered fly fishing during the yearly ’90 vacations in San Carlos de Bariloche with friends and guides. The awesome experiences in the productive Patagonian rivers and lakes improved his fishing technics. In 2010 Garcia decided to build a lodge in Trevelin and settle down with his wife Andrea and their young daughters, Francisca (age 12) and Antonia (age 8). Garcia is also a jazz specialist, who worked in famous theaters like Boston Symphony Hall (Massachusettes), Avery Fisher Hall Lincoln Center (New York), Carnegie Hall (New York), Royce Hall UCLA (California), Berkeley University (California) and John F. Kennedy Center Washington (Washington D.C.), touring with Mercedes Sosa “La voz de Latinoamérica”. After many years at the BA Jazz Festival he performed the sound for artists like Branford Marsalis, Gary Peacock, Vincent Herring, Peter Bernstein and Joe Lovano. The Fly Fishers of Davis normally meet to swap fish stories at 7:30 p.m. on the last Tuesday of the month in the multipurpose room at Harper Junior High School. The meetings are free and open to newcomers and guests. Come around 7 p.m. to check out the various outings, ask about the Club or try your luck at the monthly raffle. If you’re interested in learning to fly fish come to the meeting and ask anyone about our introductory and intermediate Fly Fishing courses. The club is also working on a program for young fly fishers (under 16).
