Volume 3 – Issue 2: Summer 2016

Can Summer get her quick enough? That is usually a scary thing to say in Texas as we all know it will get extremely hot and muggy for most of us. But seriously, these Spring rains have been crazy. Scientific estimates on how much rain has fallen in Texas is beyond imagination. 5,000,000,000,000 gallons in just May alone. Enough to completely cover the State of Texas 8 times. Enough to supply the world eight – eight ounce glasses of water for 10,000 people a day!!!!

Welcome to the Texas Council!! The Texas Council was formed this fall, as there was a strong desire to unify our state. Texas was divided with the Northern clubs belonging to the Southern Council and the rest of the state belonging to the Gulf Coast Council. A unified state will be beneficial in so many ways. On November the 26th, the Federation of Fly Fishers approved the formation of the Texas Council. The new Council has been off to an excellent start, with the help of so many wonderful, and talented volunteers. Without them, this dream would have never came true.

We hope you find this website to be of great value, and easy to use. Please provide any comments, suggestions, or activities you wish the council to partake in. We would greatly appreciate your support.
