Rio Grande Valley Fly Tiers Club Meeting

January 9, 2014 General News No Comments

The Rio Grande Valley Fly Tiers Club will be meeting on Wednesday, January 15, 2014 at the Bass Pro Shop meeting room for it’s first fly tying session of the year. The session is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. and is free to all RGVFTC members. The public is invited and will only be charged $2.50 for the instruction.

Either Jack Keller or Charlie Villarreal or both may tie this fly. They demonstrated it at my house the other day and it certainly seems worth learning.

I’m currently recuperating from a hip replacement and won’t be able to attend. This will give me sometime to finish the Rio Grande Valley Fly Tyers Club website and the fly tying schedule for the year.

More information to come.

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.
