Texas Council 2015 Summer Newsletter

August 14, 2015 General News No Comments

Texas IFFF members. Excited to share with you what may be our best newsletter yet. The 2015 summer edition. So many exciting things going on and coming this fall!! A great time to get involved in something, have fun, meet new friends, and learn more about fly fishing. Pay attention to all of the activities throughout the state.

Many of us are in Bend, Oregon for the IFFF National Fair. Great show so far and Texas was again well recognized at the awards banquet. Congrats to all that were recognized. Special recognition also goes out to Dutch Baughman, as he was introduced as one of the new Board of Directors member. Dutch replaced David Lemke who served for many years. Congrats to you both. Dutch will bring a strong passion for the IFFF and will be very active in his role.

Exciting news to come from TP&WD as the river access program is coming along nicely. Many new sites will be available for anglers to enjoy on our favorite rivers!! Also clubs will be receiving new conservation litter bags to help keep our rivers clean!!

I also cannot ever stop thanking the volunteers that make this council what it is. All have been doing an amazing job, and have served for many years. Some will be moving on this year and will be surely missed. But with that comes the opportunity for new members to serve and join a fun group that are primed to make a difference. We would love to see some new volunteers to keep us moving on. If you would like to join us in any role, please let us know by emailing us at:

Thank you and enjoy your rest of summer. Look forward to some awesome fishing this fall!!

Hank Patterson making GOOD Time

May 23, 2015 General News No Comments

A few weeks ago, we mentioned that Hank Patterson was coming from Montana to Texas for the expo in his drift boat. Well we have GREAT news!!! With all of the rain, and water going over spillways, he is way ahead of schedule!! Bringing with him his loads of wisdom, which does not take up much space, and a boatload of humor, yes he had to have another drift boat for that, we are excited he will be with us both Friday and Saturday night at the Expo. You can reserve your spot now through Sunday by going on line and registering. After Sunday, registration can still be done at the registration tables in New Braunfels.

This will be a lot of fun. Make your plans now!!!!

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.
