At the February 27, 2018 monthly meeting of the Texas Fly Fishers, Danny Scarborough http://www.houstonflyfishing.com will be making a presentation about fly fishing in and around Houston.  Danny’s presentation will include urban fly fishing for carp, gar, tilapia and whatever else shows up; bass, carp, gar, crappie and white bass fly fishing on Lake Houston; fly fishing for bowfin, bass, gar and carp on Lake Conroe; and, fly fishing private lakes for big bass and huge bluegill.  Danny is a very knowledgeable fly fisherman and talented fly tyer so his presentation should be a good one.  There is no charge for admission and all are welcome at the meeting.

Troy Miller’s Shaddie Clouser

http://www.geocities.ws/clinscott_pfl/shaddieclouser.htm

Troy Miller  “The original is on the web (google “Troy shaddie clouser” and you’ll find it). I have a newer recipe with a different tying method but gives about the same result. Quicker and more durable. The new recipe also has three or four variants that is use in different conditions/applications. I still love that fly, it was one of Clarke’s favorites. I tie them with plastic eyes to fish right under the surface (specks over the green lights) to double heavy lead eyes to fish stripers on a sinking line deep in Texoma. And any depth in between. Tied correctly, they never foul.”
