IFFF Certified Casting Instructor Course

February 14, 2014 General News No Comments

Anyone interested in improving their casting skills and working toward becoming an IFFF Certified Casting Instructor is invited to meet with Dr. Reynaldo Ramirez Jr at his home to learn about the program. This will be a one hour session over coffee and sweet bread.


     Date: Saturday, February 15, 2014

     Time: 10 a.m.

     Location: 31940 Cactus Road, San Benito, Texas 78586


We’ll go over the casting and teaching skills needed to pass the exam. This is not an easy process, but one with great opportunities for personal development and an opportunity to support fly fishing in south Texas.

Information about the CCI exam is available at the IFFF website at www.fedflyfishers.org.

The session is limited, so call 956-639-3426 to reserve your spot.

Facebook Pages For Your Reading Pleasure

We all know the power of Facebook, and although Facebook may be a here-today-gone-tomorrow phenomenon, for now I figured we should go ahead and link to all club’s Facebook pages here at the Texas Council site.

The idea here is to cross pollenate the Facebook pages, and that is obviously up to you who read and manage those respective Facebook pages.

Here is the list I have as of now:
East Texas Fly Fishers
Laguna Madre Fly Fishing Association group

Lubbock Fly Fishers

Best I can tell, those without include:
Central Texas Fly Fishers
Red River Fly Fishers
Texas Fly Fishers
Pineywoods Fly Fishers

Please notify us if you add, change or delete your Facebook page. And don’t hesitate to put that information in a comment to this post as well. If you were left out, please let us know as well. These links are now also in the sidebars of this site.



We are looking for stories from all the Texas clubs, as well as the information you want to appear in your club's web page on this site! Feel free to contact us about being a contributing writer to this site, and we will set that up behind the scenes.

Please feel free to register and comment on news stories you see here at the official Texas Council Website. The only way you can comment on stories you read, because of the battle against spammers, is to register first, and then be logged in - to comment.



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.
