Rio Grande Valley Fly Tiers Update

September 19, 2013 General News 1 Comment

We have enjoyed the rain these past couple of weeks. Unfortunately, it’s going to put a dent into our plans to have our first RGVFTC Fly Swap Tournament which was to be held this Saturday, September 21st.


The weather report this afternoon shows that tropical storm Manuel is strengthening and heading toward us. It is predicted that rain events will increase and that the storm will bring more rain on Friday and Saturday before heading back south. I’ve added the current video from the weather channel to better illustrate the predictions.




It looks like sun will be short lived this weekend. Sunday before a cold front send storms back south. Sunny skies and 12-15 mph winds may be a time to look for fish.


We’re hoping that we can try again in late October. The Laguna Madre Fly Fishing Association is hoping to have a beach trip on Saturday, October 12. Check out their plans on the LMFFA Facebook page.


Stay dry and enjoy any break in the weather you can.

    Looks like more rain to come! And North Texas is in line for a “rain event” this weekend as well. It’s about time.

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.
