Thursday nights at Orvis Houston
« on: July 17, 2013, 11:08:40 AM »
Adam and the gang at Orvis are trying to start up a Thursday night social at the store with free beer (!) & cokes, munchies, fishing videos, casting demos and contests. For those of you who are familiar with Swan Point in Rockport, they are trying to emulate what Dave Hayward has been doing on Fridays.  I went last week and had a good time. It's a good opportunity to publicize the club and talk to potential new members. The start time is 6:30 PM. Drop in if you can.

To fish, or not to fish?  What a stupid question!

I was there, but left too early.

Reports came in that there were quite a few new faces.

My own impatience cost me an opportunity to hear new stories.

I've been given a table to tie flies on.

Do we have any requests?

Re: Thursday nights at Orvis Houston, casting game

The casting game:

Use a fly rod, not yours, to make a curve cast around an obstacle, getting as close as you can to the target, without hitting the obstacle.

The casting game on the last gathering was the in-air mend.

No competition.

I have no idea what Chris and Adam have planned for the next gathering.
