Tailwaters Dallas Fly Shop Event Schedule 2020

| March 4, 2020

This is from the good people at the preeminent Dallas Fly Shop – Tailwaters, and as you can see, they have a great slate of events lined up for every level of fly fisher. Sure, we all know they love to do the exotic trips, and quite honestly wouldn’t we all! But, as you can see, they are invested in the beginning fly fisher (just as I have been for years) as well. DO ME A FAVOR: If you are an experienced fly tier, be sure to bring YOUR OWN fly tying materials to these BRAND NEW FLY TYING events at Tailwaters … it’s just common sense, and courtesy. (My unsolicited two-cents-worth) And if they have fly tying supplies, BUY SOMETHING please (again my own two-cents).


We’ve have some great events coming up this Spring!  Included are several gatherings at the shop, the annual Fly Fishing Brew Fest, the Fly Fishing Film Tour, Schools and Clinics at the shop, and much more. Put these dates on your calendar and stand by for more details. 

Meantime, we could not be more excited about the arrival of Spring coming soon. Make sure to come down to the shop to see us as you gear up for your Spring Break adventures or the pretty weather local fishing that will be here before you know it!
