TUESDAY October 26, 2021-Mendenhall Community Center; MONTHLY SPEAKER: Taylor Guest (TFF Saltwater Outings Chair)

Our next in person meeting of the Texas Fly Fishers is Tuesday October 26 @ 7:00 pm. Mendenhall Community Center 1414 Wirt Road Doors are open ~6:30 pm for fellowship and swapping fish stories. This month we are glad to welcome Taylor Guest our Saltwater Outings Chair. Taylor's will focus on skinny water redfish on the upper coast. The upper coast, specifically Port Author to Freeport, is not traditionally considered a premier destination for fly fishing for skinny water reds. This is largely due to the soft mud substrate making it difficult to effectively pole a skiff. If you're up to the challenge and know where to go, sight casting for swampy reds can be some of the most exciting and rewarding redfishing available. If you're willing to explore this style of fishing, you'll find yourself alone in the marsh, something we all seek in the ever growing sport of fishing. Place: Mendenhall Community Center 1414 Wirt Road
