Texas Council Spring 2017 Newsletter

Texas Council Spring Newsletter

Texas Council homepage

Welcome to the Texas Council!! The Texas Council was formed this fall, as there was a strong desire to unify our state. Texas was divided with the Northern clubs belonging to the Southern Council and the rest of the state belonging to the Gulf Coast Council. A unified state will be beneficial in so many ways. On November the 26th, the Federation of Fly Fishers approved the formation of the Texas Council. The new Council has been off to an excellent start, with the help of so many wonderful, and talented volunteers. Without them, this dream would have never came true.

We hope you find this website to be of great value, and easy to use. Please provide any comments, suggestions, or activities you wish the council to partake in. We would greatly appreciate your support.

Sincerely,

Texas Council

Trout In The Classroom update

The trout continue to do well (although we have had some losses thanks to school maintenance crews unplugging filters and chillers and not plugging them back in)! As you can see from the video these mini rainbows are healthy and active. We are starting to look at release dates for May on the trout section of the Guadalupe. If any club members would like to help out then please let me know.

Cheers

This was my second time to attend the Sunfish Spectacular and had a great time. I was hoping to shout “fish on” at least as many times as Puck, but alas that did not work out as planned. How does Puck do that? I had a great conversation with Stacy Lynn about ‘all things fly fishing’. I was one of the last to leave on Saturday and the owner stopped by and advised me to cast my popper in a productive spot that yielded a nice 2 pound bass to end the day.
