At the Tuesday, March 27, 2018 monthly meeting of the Texas Fly Fishers, Terry and Roxanne Wilson https://thebluegillpond.com/about/ will be making a presentation about fly fishing for bass and bluegill. In that regard, Terry and Roxanne are authors of several books including: Bluegill Fly Fishing & Flies, Largemouth Bass Fly Fishing: Beyond the Basics, Smallmouth Bass Fly Fishing: A Practical Guide, Crappie Fly Fishing: A Seasonal Approach, and their most recent book, The Bluegill Diaries: A Fly Fishing Chronicle, which was published in January of 2018. Additionally, Terry’s original flies for bluegills, largemouth bass, and smallmouth bass have been featured in Fly Fishing and Tying Journal and Fly Fish America and were included in the Federation of Flyfishers Fly Pattern Encyclopedia and Innovative Flies and Techniques. They were awarded the Southern Council Federation of Fly Fishers Educators of the year award in 2014. 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 March 27, 2018 monthly meeting. We would be glad to have you and look forward to seeing you at the meeting.
Finally, as the club outing to the John Scarborough Sunfish Spectacular at Damon Seven Lakes is coming up on April 7, 2018, the presentation of the Wilsons will provide an opportunity for all attending to brush up on and/or acquire new knowledge which should help making attending the Sunfish Spectacular ( an event targeting sunfish, bluegill and bass) more enjoyable.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Terry and Roxanne Wilson plan to be at the meeting early, at approximately 5:30, to tie some of their original bluegill patterns. So, anyone who has the slightest interest in fly tying will not want to miss this opportunity to visit with, observe and/or participate with these gifted fly tyers.
