it looks to me like Texas does honor the LA fishining license for those 65+

Can we get a link to the TPWD site that tells us more?

A Parmachene Belle or Jock Scott.

You bring the materials, and I can start on those late Monday night, and I might be able to have something resembling a fly by Tuesday at the end of the meeting.

Oh wait...  that is over 5 minutes.   Not going to tie it.  :)

10 practice rods

6 volunteers

50+ students

With the moving casting targets and energetic young people, we had a good time.  The 2 classes we supported passed by so quickly I was't sure we were really done....

I must thank our Volunteers:
Marcos (Prez)
John P. (Vice prez)
Mike G. (Comunications)
Micheal M. (Trout guy)
Greg A. (TPWD contact)
Don H. (TFF, Vet and NASA)

The 13th we try our hand at tying the fly.

Sell Anything / Solid wooden desk.

While looking for a new fly tying table I ran across this on TKF, and contacted the seller. (Board name of CoastieCulture)

For $40 it would be a great desk for fly tying or anything else.  Since it is being stored in a garage, it needs some TLC, but you can see that the wood is solid, not pressboard.

Contact the seller at:  94zero-53five-8869

Direction from Houston

I'm asking for a few more volunteers.

If we meet at 0645 at the flag pole, we can have coffee before moving into the building to get registered as visitors.

We only have 2 classes to support, not 3 like last year.

Please forward this to any others that you think may be willing to help.

I like the idea, and may use a modification of that for my front-mounted PINS basket.

My question is: What tool do you use to make the cuts?

Does anybody have any experience with this fly line? I'm due to update 2 of my 5wt lines this year.
Airflo Ridge (R)

I wound up buyin this line for the new panfish rod.  It casts great, but it is noisy as it zings through the guides.

This Friday is the casting practice with the high school class.

I hope the crew from last year can join us again, and perhaps we can get a few more volunteers?
