WATCH THE VIDEO WRAP UP OF 2016! You may learn something more than you expected from an old fly fisher.

It was a year for the record books – in quantity and size of the carp on Lake Ray Roberts, Texas. And with a 2016 model Lagoon Sport Skiff, and a whole new perspective was unleashed for targeting carp and bass on North Texas lakes. The experiment was a success!

Texas Carp Fly Fishing Guide Services – How about a ride on a saltwater skiff an hour away from the heart of Dallas or Fort Worth? That’s what we’ll be doing again in the spring-summer-fall of 2017.


 Yes, I do evening outings for sand bass starting in June-July. Talk about a great way to end your work day? This is it! I have special rates for parents-kids 1/1 these evenings, and you’re more than welcome to bring conventional tackle to help your young person catch sand bass on just about every cast! And if you’re hungry like me, you can keep some too.


As the person who keeps Texas Fly Caster running, I also hit hot spots as they come up – guerilla style. We could hit the water on a moment’s notice for things like palmetto bass in the Trinity River, or adventures to smaller, less populated lakes and ponds – all over Texas.

Floods lead to exciting but short lasting hybrid action at nearby rivers and dams
Hybrid action  and sand bass like this sometimes lasts only a few days, but it’s some of the most exciting fly fishing you can find in North Texas. Follow my twitter account @texasflycaster to get updates on this seasonal action.

If you are interested in chasing Texas Parks and Wildlife Department water body records, we can do that as well – on Lake Ray Roberts, or just about any freshwater destination that is walkable or by flats skiff. It’s fun to go after fish with a specific goal in mind, and the TPWD records add an interesting twist to your thinking when you’re out there actually in pursuit.

Keep checking here for more services, specials and destinations as they come available. You never know what kind of radical fly fishing I’ll find next.
