Although the majority of anglers attending Pier Fishing In California (PFIC) or United Pier and Shore Anglers of California (UPSAC) events have been adults, many of them have brought along their children and made it a family event. One of our most esteemed anglers, Rita Magdamo, has always made it a point to bring along her son Kyle and it has allowed us to watch his progression from youngster to college student.
