Held at North Toledo Bend State Park, Walter McLendon leads the event.

Directions from Houston

2907 North Toledo Park Road
Zwolle, Louisiana 71486


Rendezvous is the result of several fly fishermen gathering to fish and tie flies at the state park many years ago. After a couple of years of growing pains they found the park's group facility. And what a facility indeed! A capacity of 150 people in 5 heated log bunkhouses (30 beds each), a heated central shower and restroom building with nice night lighting on all the sidewalks and a large main log building with A/C, a commercial kitchen, dining hall, fireplace, a long front porch, picnic table and a large barbeque trailer out front.

We begin gathering before 3 PM on Friday when the park staff unlocks the facility. Families and individuals check in at the main office and ask for their FREE Parking pass for the "Fly Fishing Group".

More details as the event gets closer

Outing Information Only / Guadalupe One Fly, Saturday, January 17th, 2015
« on: December 04, 2014, 10:39:38 AM »
Texas FlyFishers of Houston
Event: Guadalupe One Fly


When:      Saturday, January 17th, 2015
Where:     Guadalupe River, Rio Raft in Sattler. We will meet here and then spread out to fish   
Start   08:00 in the Reel Fly parking lot
End Time:     When ever everyone is done – probably around 4pm
Trip Leader: MFQ
Phone:    713-213-eight one five zero   
e-mail:     MFQuigley at yahoo dot com

Trip Description: Catch as many inches of fish on the same fly. Measure and photograph for proof.  We will meet up afterwards to eat, drink and announce the winner. Hopefully we will meet at the fly shop in Sattler as Brent & Ashley have a keg in the shop!

How to sign up: Sign Up Here, on the sign up sheet distributed at the monthly meeting or e-mail the trip leader.
How to get waiver forms: Download PDF form here. Required  Waiver of Liability, filled out and signed, along with emergency contact information.

Cost:  Rio Raft access fee, plus personal expenses and transportation

Directions:  Rio Raft is located at the 4th crossing bridge on River Road. The easiest way to reach it is from exit 191 on I-35. Go North on FM 306 for 13 miles then turn left on 2673.  Go 1 ½ miles and turn left on River Road. Rio Raft is one mile down on the left. If you cross the river you went too far.
 
Important items:
•    Member dues are current!
•   Waiver of Liability, filled out and signed, along with emergency contact information
•   Current Texas Fishing License
•   Guadalupe River Trout Unlimited Lease Access Pass (not essential but it will help you reach areas the others can’t)
•   Waders with safety belt
•   Wading staff
•   Extra change of dry clothes
•   Wind and/or water proof jacket
•   Wide brimmed hat AND polarized glasses

Recommended Equipment:  Standard trout fishing gear will work fine here.  Rods should be in the 4-5wt range and whatever length you feel comfortable with, although as the predominant method is nymphing longer rods are better.  Tippets in the 5x range should be fine; I don’t think you need to go any lower unless you find the fish are really spooky.  Fluorocarbon is not essential, but I am sure it can’t hurt if you want to use it.  Standard 9ft leaders, split shot, indicators (if you want to use them), forceps, landing net, tape measure and camera.

Waders are essential to fish this river as most of the banks are private. A kayak can really expand the area you can fish.


Recommended Flies: Nymphing/streamers are the best bet as dry fly hatches on this river tend to be sporadic and this is a competition after all.  These are mainly hatchery raised fish that have been in the river only a couple of months so flies do not need to be complicated.  Last year egg patterns, san juan worms and basic nymphs such as hare’s ears, copper johns and pheasant tails all worked.  Sizes from 18-14 should be about right.  If you want to use streamers then woolly buggers (white or black) seem to work well.  Choose one fly, tie it on well and go for it!  If you get up to the river the day before you could stop at The Fly Shop and ask what is working on the river at the moment.

Recommended guidelines for participants:
•   Notify the trip leader if you have any potential concerns
•   If inexperienced, then buddy up.
•   If you are boating or kayaking, inform the trip leader of your float plan if planning to fish alone or longer then the designated times.
•   Sign in and sign out at the launch site. Inform the trip leader if you will be launching in a different place.
•   Be careful wading! There are some nasty slots in the river bed that can catch you unawares if you do not pay attention

I tried super glue, but as soon as I bent the foam, the glue broke.   Next attempt will be the booger glue.

I like the idea of sandwiching 2 colors of foam to make one fly.

How would you recomend bonding the 2 layers together?

I've seen several posts for 2015 outings. What is the story on the Guadalupe one fly?

Trying to figure out when it is so I can get my calendar sorted out.

MFQ is leading this one on the 17th of January.

Shaping up nicely, so far!
