Cabelas is clearing out some gear

This is from my POC at the League City store.  He told me that Cabelas is having a major price drop on fly-fishing rods and reel.  He quoted some prices, and I was impressed.

It may have something to do with the current merger/buy-out.

I’ll take down this posting in a week or so, as I just wanted folks to know about it.

The following is from Capt Scott Null:

I’ll be going back to Louisiana for the winter bull reds in 2018. I have secured a really nice house on Grand Isle with two separate living quarters. It is located right on the beach with a large deck above the dunes. I have the second and third floors. We’ll have it to ourselves as they won’t rent the first floor while I’m there.

November 28, 2017 Monthly Speaker-Dayle Mazzarella- “Fly Fishing Myths”

Our Speaker for the November 28, 2017 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.

The title of Dayle’s presentation will be: “Fly Fishing Myths”.  In making the presentation, he will be using an interactive format to allow us to explore some common, but at best only marginally valid, “truths” in the fly fishing world.  Since many myths are partially true, we’ll be discussing which parts are true and in what circumstances they are true.  This should be both a fun and educational presentation.

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 28, 2017 monthly meeting. We would be glad to have you and look forward to seeing you at the meeting.
