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.

The weather was perfect for fishing, but somebody forgot to tell the fish. This was NOT a 50 fish day, as many of us had had here. at Damon 7 Lakes. I heard some excitement on the water with the occasional “Fish On!” coming from all quarters.
Cabela’s is proud to host the League City Tying Team, made up of members from the Texas FlyFishers, Fly Fishers International, and other local anglers. Come join the group at the table and learn about methods, techniques, and tools, as it relates to tying flies to fish our local Texas waters. Talk around the table can get lively, and informative, so feel free to ask questions.
The theme for January 28th is “Sheephead flies.”
Met up with the team at 0600 at the parking lot. There were a grand total of 16 of us ready for this adventure spread out in 7 vehicles.
We headed down the beach at 0640 and was at mile marker 20 at exactly sunrise.
