The Red River Fly Fishers will be hosting their annual Red River Rendezvous fly tying Extravaganza on January 26 & 27, 2018, at Eisenhower State Park on Lake Texoma.

This event is a great way to kick off the year, tie a good inventory of flies, visit with old friends and make new friends.  There is always a wide range of fly tying experience levels from beginners to FFI Silver Award tiers.   It’s a casual group with no set agenda, tie as much as you want, practice casting, or take your newest fly creation out on Lake Texoma, a world class striper fishery.

The fly tying is held in the Recreation hall inside Eisenhower State Park.  It is a nice facility with a full kitchen, heat, and restrooms.  The state park has nice campsites including some full hookups for RV’s.   There are also several hotels in Sherman & Denison if you want to make a weekend of it.  We will have a pot luck lunch on Saturday so bring your favorite dish to share.  There has always been a lot of great food and a bunch of it!

There is no charge to attend this outing.  Let the park staff know you are a participant and there will be no entry fee into the park.   The schedule for the weekend looks like this:

  • 3pm Friday, January 26, 2018, the doors open.
