Filippo is the Co-Founder and Co-Owner of Avalon Outdoor, a specialized tourism enterprise founded in 1992 and located in Cuba. Originally from Italy, Filippo has dedicated most of his life to managing and promoting sustainable fly fishing. In Cuba, he was among the first to make the business case for conservation with the marine protected area of Gardens of the Queen and 5 more Marine parks. So if you are interested in learning about fly fishing opportunities in Cuba or just want to socialize with some friendly fly fishermen and women, come on out to the October, 2016 monthly meeting.

Invitation from Walter McClendon of the Pinewoods Fly Fishers
Welcome again to the North Toledo Bend Rendezvous! The date is Friday afternoon, November 4th thru Sunday morning, November 6th, 2016. Rendezvous is the result of several fly fishermen gathering to fish and tie flies at the state park many years ago. After a couple of years of growing pains they found the park’s group facility. And what a facility indeed!
A capacity of 150 people in 5 heated log bunkhouses (30 beds each), a heated central shower and restroom building with nice night lighting on all the sidewalks and a large main log building with A/C, a commercial kitchen, dining hall, fireplace, a long front porch, picnic table and a large barbecue trailer out front.
Take a look at the link and see what we are planning.
