For the work you are doing to put the name of the Texas FlyFishers before the public and into the schools.
A great big:
Thank  You

I fished that area and launched a boat from that ramp  back in the 70s - 80s.  Dropped the wheels on the boat trailer off the  end of the launch slab several times. Underwater part washed out.   Just saying...... Check if you can.

Fabulous oyster reef in the middle of Chocolate Bay.  Check to see if it  off limits for eating.   They closed it because of up stream contamination just  before I quit fishing that area. Otherwise take your knife and crackers.  Elbow deep.

Future generations may not dig deep enough to find these vid's.
If  you  will  send me the link where you have the video stored  I will create a page of links under '"Fly Recipes'. Include for each the name/title you want it to be known by.

This would be a good project for a TFF a donation. Why don't you bring this  up at the  next board meeting in January? $5000 sounds like a good number.
