Welcome to the Texas Council!! The Texas Council was formed  to unify the clubs in our state. Texas was previously 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 is beneficial in many ways that will support and grow fly fishing in Texas.

Please provide any comments, suggestions, or activities you wish the Council to consider. We greatly appreciate your support.
