POC ONE FLY INFO
MFQ asked if I would put the word out to all the salties about a "reel" fun event upcoming on our 2015 calendar. First off if you are on the list to receive this email it is because you have either attended one of our events in the past or you have said you'd like to. Please forward this email to your other TFF fishing buddies if they are not listed above and have them sign up early so we get a good head count. We will also be inviting other Texas fly fishing clubs to attend and see how we roll. So here you go.
On July 24 - 26, 2015 were are having the Port O'Connor One Fly event. Besides being one of our longest running premier saltwater events, we have arranged the use of the Rabe House for comfortable lodging for those who need a place to stay. The House has plenty of room for our attendees, plenty of streetside parking (get there early), a four story observation deck, outdoor grill and a fish cleaning table. If you have attended and stayed there before you probably had a blast like the rest of us. It is important that you sign up early so that you secure your accommodations. The Upstairs portion of the house has One bedroom with a queen sized bed that has been reserved. Also up stairs are a comfortable futon and sofa sleeper plus 2 baths and a kitchen. Downstairs is a more open concept that has 3 twin beds and three double futons plus bath and kitchen. Kitchens have stoves, refrigerators and microwaves. Bring your own toiletries please! If needed and we hope we do, we will have other accommodations available for all.
If that isn't enough we are talking world class food too! For Friday night's Captain's Dinner we'll have George Sutherland and his cooking crew (John P. and yours truly) cooking up a Cajan style shrimp boil with plenty of spicy corn, potatoes, and ice cold beer! Also included will be grilled Redfish over garlic bread smothered with smoked Gouda cheese. A cardiologist will be on call if needed! Now on Saturday night John Purcell is making his famous POC Paella with all of the freshest seafood available. For those that had tasted this treat before, you will see them run for the chow line as quickly as they can get there and really that's all that needs to be said. DEEEEELICIOUS! Also we'll be sampling some fine Texas distilled Bourbon, Vodka, Tequila, and Rum and some big HONK'N Cigars too! Are you kidding me I'd drive to POC just for the food and drink!
So don't be a fishing social outcast - join the fun! Last Year's One Fly set high standards which will be hard to beat but we'll definitely try for sure!
