Our Speaker for the November 27, 2018 monthly meeting will be Dayle Mazzarella. Dayle is certified by the Federation of Fly Fishers International as a Master Certified Casting Instructor and for the past 25 years has been guiding fly fishing trips in Wyoming. He has also fished Alaska, South America, Spain, New Zeland and the Bahamas. In the winter and spring he fishes the Tampa Bay area.
Dayle and his wife, Barbara, will be making a presentation titled: “Fishing Adventures – two different perspectives” which is a collection of stories about their fishing adventures together and how they each looked at the events in sometimes opposite ways. This should really be an entertaining presentation.
Additionally, Dayle will be holding several fly casting clinics here in Houston on December 1, 2018 and a spot for those can be reserved at the November meeting or by contacting club member John Slocomb. Private casting lessons will also be offered between the date of Dayle’s presentation to the club on November 27th and the date of the clinics on December 1st. Arrangements for private casting instruction with Dayle can be made by contacting Bayou City Anglers http://www.bayoucityangler.com
So, if you are interested in learning more about the fly fishing world, if you are interested in watching some fly tying before the meeting or are just interested in socializing with a friendly group of fly fishing men and women come to the November 27, 2018 monthly meeting. We would be glad to have you and look forward to seeing you at the meeting.

Jacks in the Surf; Nov 16-18, 2018
6 people signed up, but we had 19 fishing the event.
Everybody caught fish, but the fishing was slow. “Puck” only caught 27.
Large-mouthed bass, red-ear sunfish, bluegill, and tilapia all came to hand. Some of the largest fish hit top-water flies, and even more hit sub-surface.
At the Tuesday, October 30, 2018 monthly meeting of the Texas Fly Fishers, Capt. Jeff Johnson https://www.flyfishrockport.com was the speaker. Jeff spends the summer months guiding on the Missouri River out of Craig, Montana and the winter months guiding out of Rockport, Texas.
Weather is going to be much better than our April trip.
