Annual Dr. Ed Rizzolo Fly Tying Festival February 11th

January 7, 2017 General News No Comments

Texas FlyFishers

Houston, Texas

October 30, 2016

Dear Fellow Fly Tyer,

Well, it’s that time of year again and, I’m proud to announce that on Saturday, February 11th, 2017, the Texas FlyFishers will celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Annual Dr. Ed Rizzolo Fly Tying Festival and I would like to extend you an invitation to be part of this great event. The Festival will take place in the auditorium at the Bethany Christian Church, 3223 Westheimer Road in Houston, Texas, from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, with lunch and refreshments provided for the tyers.

Joining us at this year’s Festival will be David Nelson of White Plains, NY. If you’re not familiar with David’s flies, the best way I can describe them is flatwing flies, with a flair. David’s patterns and tying style have also been featured in David Klausmeyer’s book Striper Bass Flies, Patterns of the Pros and Bob Popovic’s latest publication Fleye Design: Techniques, Insights, Patterns. You can also find out more about David’s style of tying and his patterns on his website www.squimpishflies.com .

From its humble beginnings in 1993, the Festival has grown into one of the areas premier events, consistently attracting the top fly tiers from all over the country. This event could not be the success it is without the participation of tyers like you. With your support, it is our hope that the Fly Tying Festival will continue to grow in size and reputation. Please make plans on being of this great event.

Regards,

Chris Sumers

Event Chairman

Please send in your RSVP by January 7, 2017 to Raymond Lindeen at raymond@houstonanalytical.com or, to me at Csumers@comcast.net .

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
