At the Tuesday, September 25, 2018 monthly meeting of the Texas Fly Fishers, Brian S. Little of Sabine Skiffs (https://www.sabineskiffs.com) will tell about his adventure traveling down the Colorado River with friend, John Brandon, as they fly fished, camped and cooked out on the river for a week long adventure taking a custom rigged Sabine Micro skiff from Austin down to Matagorda and then up the ICW to Brian’s costal home. Hear about the tough water conditions, sinking the skiff at the Garwood dam, pulling the skiff out, fishing Matagorda and then traveling to Galveston Bay. There is no charge for admission and all are welcome at the meeting.
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 September 25, 2018 monthly meeting. We would be glad to have you and look forward to seeing you at the meeting.

Texas FlyFishing Padre Island National Seashore 2018 Surf Fishing Trip
We have already had one trip a few years back that we didn’t postpone, and paid the price. See the video below:
GRTU (Guadalupe River Trout Unlimited) https://www.grtu.org is having its fall river cleanup Saturday October 6, 2018 from 9:00-11:30AM at Rio Guadalupe Resort (Rio Raft) in New Braunfels, Texas. The cleanup is being co-sponsored by Keep Texas Beautiful which is providing all the cleanup supplies. Hot dogs, hamburgers and other items will be provided by GRTU following the cleanup.
So, if you are in the area or just want to make a trip to a scenic part of the State you might want to consider participating in this activity.
The way we used to track participants, with a sign-in sheet at club meetings, didn’t allow the participants to be notified of any changes to the event, (weather, high water, muddy water, bad tides, etc.) or coordinate what to bring (rain gear, food, camping supplies, etc.)
There would be no regularly scheduled meeting in August as the Expo will serve as the meeting.
We won’t be at Bayland the night of the last Tuesday of August.
