Texoma on the Fly

Great event hosted by the Red River Fly Fishers. Close enough for ALL North Texas clubs to attend. Recommended for all to attend.

Texoma on the Fly 2015

 

The Red River Fly Fishers started on event they called Texoma on

the Fly eleven years ago. It began as a venue for fly fishers and people

interested in fly fishing to get together for fly tying demonstrations

and lessons, casting practice and tips, and presentations on fishing

Lake Texoma. From the beginning the emphasis was on teaching

and sharing ideas on using a fly rod on Lake Texoma. Conservation

has played a prominent role in the presentations at Texoma on the

Fly as the group tried to educate as many as possible on the danger

of spreading Zebra mussels to other lakes in the north Texas area.

Five years ago the Red River Fly Fishers took on the Go Fish

program of TPWD angler education classes at Eisenhower State

Park on Lake Texoma. Texoma on the Fly was a natural fit for the

beginning fly fishing class. The event has evolved into a combination

of angler education with the TPWD and a fly fishing expo for

people interested in fly fishing on Lake Texoma and the area waters.

We plan to continue this forum to introduce fly fishing to youth in

the area and to provide an event where area fly fishers can compare

fly tying designs and techniques, get feedback on casting, as well

as talk with are fishermen on best ways to target the excellent bass

fishing on Lake Texoma.

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

Federation of Fly Fishers
