Our Speaker for the Tuesday, January 29, 2019 monthly meeting will be Alan Kulcak. Alan is very knowledgeable about the Sheepshead which is considered by many to be one of the most challenging species on the Gulf Coast to catch on the fly. This should really be an entertaining presentation.
Also, before the meeting and beginning at approximately 6 pm, club member Les Lehman will be tying sheepshead flies including his Green Weenie pattern which was featured in “Texas Saltwater Classics” by Greg Berlocher https://www.amazon.com/Texas-Saltwater-Classics-Patterns-Coast/dp/0929980190/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1546978303&sr=1-1&keywords=texas+saltwater+classics+berlocher with a forward by Lefty Kreh. Extra tables will be set up around Les and members are encouraged to bring their tying vices and tools to tie along with Les. In that regard, Les has advised he will have extra materials on hand for those who want to participate.
Both Alan and Les will be preparing the club members for the annual sheepshead outing known as the Texas Permit trip which will be coming up early this year.
So, if you are interested in learning more about the fly fishing world, if you are interested in watching and participating in 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 January 29, 2019 monthly meeting. We would be glad to have you and look forward to seeing you at the meeting.

I have watched Alan pull one sheephead after another in a space of water less than 50 feet. I plan to bring a lot of questions, because he knows how to catch them, and I want to know what he does.
Here is where you can stock up on your sheephead flies for the outing: https://www.sightcastfishing.com/
