Looking for a CCI

I work for the Wounded Warrior Project, am a disabled Veteran myself and I am inquiring on group pricing rates for an introductory class for 10 Warriors.

Could you please provide me with pricing? I work in the Houston area, have done some fly fishing and realize the therapeutic value of our Warriors being exposed to fly fishing. If this is as popular as I believe it will be then I would want to host it as a reoccurring event to be held once quarterly. Thank you for your time.

Respectfully,

John Kadleck

TFF Forming Committee to Assist with Oktoberfisch

Oktberfisch is a fly fishing festival that was started by the Fredericksburg Fly Fishers. There are vendors, educational opportunities, and of course, fishing. It is held in October every year in Junction, Texas at an RV park on on either the North or South Llano River for a number of years.

This year’s Oktoberfisch was October 18-20. It was well attended and the weather and fishing were great.

The Fredericksburg Fly Fishers have asked for other fly fishing clubs to collaborate with them in planning and putting on next year’s Oktoberfisch. We at TFF are accepting that offer and are putting together a committee to collaborate with the folks at FFF for next year. Based on conversations I had at Oktoberfisch, I am expecting other clubs especially, in Central Texas to follow suit. If anyone is interested in joining the committee, please contact Steve Edwards at sedwards56@gmail.com.

TPW Magazine Urges Vote for Prop. 5 to Benefit State Parks

The November edition of the Texas Parks & Wildlife magazine urges voters to support constitutional Proposition 5 which would dedicate sales taxes from the sales of sporting goods to TPWD and the Historical Commission. “Dedicated appropriations would ensure a reliable and predictable source of funding to not only keep state parks and historical sites safe and in working order but also allow the two agencies to provide new outdoor recreational opportunities to meet the demands of a growing state.”
