Board of Directors 2014



Jim Miller   

President Jim Miller

Jim and his wife Norma joined the HRRC in 2011. Jim became 2nd Vice President in 2012 and was 1st Vice President in 2013.  Jim has participated and assisted in many of the club activities since joining and both Jim and Norma have hosted the new member party at their house on Humboldt Island the past two years. One of Jim’s projects this past year is the text mail system which alerts members of upcoming events. Jim has also contributed a number of articles to the Fishing Flashes. Jim and Norma own and fish their 30′ Mainship Pilot II Tuna Tales and 17′ Boston Whaler.



First Vice President Casey Berwick

Casey’s close relationship with the ocean began at age 4, while fishing a boat hand crafted by his grandfather, a 32’ sport fisher. The past 14 years, Casey and his wife Diane have owned and fished their 38’ Californian Sedan, the El Guapo.  Since taking the keys in 1999, they have logged over 600 fishing trips aboard El Guapo, mainly focusing on Catalina and San Clemente Islands, as well as the inner and outer banks such as the 43, Cortez, and the Mushroom. 10 years ago, Casey earned his 50 ton master’s license and currently holds his 100 ton, which he still uses professionally on a limited basis. In 2012, Casey and Diane rejoined the HRRC, with Casey serving as social and event coordinator under President Scot Campbell. In 2013, Casey served as 2nd vice-president as well as social and events coordinator under President Dan Ward. His wife Diane has been producing the majority of event flyers the past 2 years.





Wendy Tochihara

Second Vice President Wendy Tochihara

Many in the sport fishing industry know Wendy as a host of the popular Rod and Reel Radio fishing show, president of the Chuck Byron Youth Art Foundation, National Sales Manager for Izorline International, representative of Big Hammer Swimbaits, Warbaits, Mega Strike, Gibson Enterprises, Aqua Design and Aqua Wear. Fewer folks, however, know that Wendy was also a child actress featured in commercials as well as popular television series like Anna and the King of Siam, Kung Fu, Medical Center and Roseanne. While she kept busy as a youngster working in TV or playing sports, the times she looked forward to most were family camping and fishing trips. Although accomplished in front of a camera, Tochihara’s expertise in fishing is certainly no act. An avid long-range fisher, IGFA world record holder and IGFA Southern California Representative, she can be found fishing freshwater and saltwater tournaments throughout the year, conducting seminars and speaking on behalf of anglers.


Past President Dan Ward

Dan joined the Club in December, 2002. One of his first assignments was telephone chairman. Beginning in 2003 Dan served as the official e-mailer to members. In 2004 Dan became 3rd vice president in charge of fishing events, sponsoring the first annual Halibut Derby suggested by Bill Woodard. In 2005 Dan was 1st vice president and served as our Club president in 2006 and past president in 2007. Since then Dan has been active in the Club as its historian.
