GUIDE TRIPS
A gift that has to put a smile on any fly anglers face…a gift certificate to fish the premier freshwater striper lake in the country.

NOTE – Thanks, Steve Hollensed. I always appreciate anyone’s ability to consistently self promote in order to continue doing what one loves, and likes to share with others. It’s always refreshing to receive these calendars from Steve, as it reminds me that there are a few, a very limited few in the fly fishing business, who care enough about what they do to follow through with opportunities offered freely at Texas Fly Caster.
