Our speaker for the Tuesday, February 26, 2019 monthly meeting will be Clint Barghi. Clint is a Texas Parks and Wildlife Department Licensed Paddle Sport Guide with over 20 years of fishing experience along the Texas coast with over 10 of those years done by fishing from a kayak. Clint’s angling resume also includes an impressive list of tournament victories over the last 14 years.
Clint’s program will detail the moon’s influence on feeds and how to pattern trout in their spring transition. This is one of Clint’s favorite times to target trophy trout with a fly rod.

Anglers from novice to expert will gather at TFFC to celebrate the sport of fly-fishing. Learn the basics of fly-tying and casting, then fish for rainbow trout in our on-site ponds and streams. Attend seminars and demonstrations led by fly-fishing professionals. Visit with vendors of fly-fishing services and equipment.
Fly-fishing clubs from across Texas will be on hand to help anyone who wants to learn or improve existing skills. Equipment will be provided for casting classes, but participants are welcome to bring their own gear. Check the links below for more details on seminars and presenters. All activities are free with regular admission to TFFC.
Trip is cancelled. Garcitas Creek, Rescheduled to Feb 16, 2019
Our scout, Don H., states that the water is high and muddy, with more water coming from upstream.
Using a topwater fly, Jared M. was able to boat 14 fish in a short time. As the water warms up, the fish are going to start feeding even better.
3 of us made it to Shoalwater, and launched from Charlie’s Bait Camp. The water was clean and there was no wind. Temperatures were absolutely perfect.
No fish came to hand. No fish or bait were seen. Birds were on the shore, napping.
