EDUCATION NEWS

A lot of out Texas clubs have been busy teaching this year. Recently the Dallas Fly Fishers taught two TPWD Fly Fishing Classes. The first one was at the Carrollton Senior Center. They went there thinking that they were going to have 8 students but when they showed up they had 23. The students ranged in age from early grade school kids to as Jere Anderson put it “the rest looked like the teaching team”. The next week DFF went to Dallas Baptist University and taught a class on Monday and followed up on Tuesday by taking the students to the Freshwater Fishery Center to let them test out the skills they learned and try to catch a fish on a fly rod.

Thanks to Richard Johnson and Jere Anderson for being so dedicated to fly fishing education.

On June 15th the Red River Fly Fishers will be having their first Learn to Fly Fish Event at Eisenhower State Park.  For more information go to http://rrff.org/

We are planning a TPWD Angler Ed Instructor Course for sometime in July. The class will be taught by the Red River Fly Fishers and will more than likely be taught at Eisenhower State Park.
Anyone who might be interested in becoming certified as an Instructor please email Jerry Hamon at  revtcf@gmail.com  so we can get you on the list.

Caddo Conclave 2013

If you did not go, you missed a great one. Fun time. Friends, fly fishing, tying, presentations, food, and more!!! Raffles, and lots of stuff to buy. Great job Mike, the East Texas Fly Fishers, and the North Louisianna Fly Fishers for a great weekend. My 1st time to Caddo, and it did not disappoint. Ken Bohannon did a great lesson on stacking deer hair, and on Saturday there were awesome presentations from Tom and Bruce, tying, TFO team showing off rods and providing casting instructions, kayak demos and so much more. You all have to start attending these awesome events!!! So much can be learned and new friends can be made. Oh, and there is some fishing that can be squeezed in to!!

First time to witness the issue with Giant Salvinia at Caddo lake. That stuff is nasty. We should so help out, anyway we can. A conservation nightmare that stuff is. More to come on that.

WELCOME

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.

Sincerely,

Texas Council
Fly Fishers International (FFI)
