Outing Information Only / Re: 2015 Saltwater Outings

All those ideas sound good.

Louisiana sounds great, its a world class destination practically in our back yard. I think some of the more distant destinations, Belize, the Bahamas ect have tremendous possibilities. It's very possible to get a good rate if we can get a group together which wouldn't be very difficult.We might even be able to team up with the BTT or one of the other groups/lodges participating in research/tagging efforts on saltwater species

Let me know if I can help. I would like to assist in an effort to line up some of these types of trips.

We already have three of those on our annual outing list.
 
Christmas Bay - San Luis Pass normally held in March - April Trip mostly attended by kayakers
Bolivar/Stingaree - Kayak Trip was just last month.
Brown and Root - We normally hit this location during the Redfish Rodeo and the Sunday after the Fence Lake trip.
Anahauc - a blind sight fisherman's paradise and a great place to wade. REALLY?

How about Sabine Lake (kayaks and boats), Port Mansfield (Fly and/or drive-in weekend trip), Arroyo Creek and Flats (Fly and/or drive-in weekend trip). Guided boat trips
Winter trips to Louisiana Marsh (Dec-Feb), Lower Colorado River at Matagorda (boats and kayaks)

We could delete the fresh water outing budget (since nobody really goes) and pay for airline tickets and hotels for down in the FLORIDA KEYS! YEAAAAAAA BABBBBBBY!!!!!!!!!!!

Most of the saltwater fishers like to go places where we can relax after long wades, cook a delicious meal, get a good nights sleep and do it again the next day. One day trips seem to me to not see as much participation from our members.

There are a few of us trying to put together some long distance trips to the Bahamas, Keys, Mexico, Belize, etc.

While we have a few traditional outings (POC one fly, Prison Permit, Redfish Rodeo), we also have room for other outings. I'd like to solicit from you some suggestions on places that you might like to fish. Please post your suggestions here and if feasible, I'll try to get them on the 2015 schedule. 

Thanks & tight lines!

As Golden said, rooms & boat spots will be assigned first come, first served.  The rooms are confirmed, so tell them you're with the Texas FlyFishers mob.

Supper on Saturday will be Mac's BBQ. I will need headcounts to order meals.

Just guessing.
