Reminder – Fly Fish Texas Happening March 13

| February 24, 2010

Just a final reminder that Fly Fish Texas will be March 13 at the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center in Athens, Texas. Everyone I talk to says this is a great event. Here is the information off the TPWD web site:

–Anglers from novice to expert will gather at TFFC to celebrate the sport of fly-fishing. Learn the basics of fly-tying and casting, then fish for rainbow trout in our on-site ponds and streams. Attend seminars and demonstrations led by fly-fishing professionals. Visit with vendors of fly-fishing services and equipment.

Fly-fishing clubs from across Texas will be on hand to help anyone who wants to learn or improve existing skills. Equipment will be provided for casting classes, but participants are welcome to bring their own gear.
