Here are the videos of Kevin’s presentation:
Guided fly fishing trips on Texas hill country rivers and coastal flats, bonefishing in the Bahamas, world class tarpon fishing in Costa Rica and Belize await the successful bidder this year at the Texas Flyfishers Annual Auction in Houston.
Add dry fly fishing trips to blue ribbon trout streams in Montana and Colorado and there’s a new adventure waiting for even the most well-traveled angler this year. The Cinco de Bayou edition of the annual event will be held May 5, 2018 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Bayou Sports Bar and Grill, 6011 Addicks Satsuma Road.
Newcomers to fly fishing as well as fishing enthusiasts of all persuasions – fly, spin and plug – are welcome to join this celebration of Houston’s fly fishing fraternity. It is an opportunity to pick up some tackle and tips to use this season and, in the process, perhaps line up a fishing trip of a lifetime.

Back in February I spent a week in New Zealand and split my time between both salt and freshwater. Whilst everyone is familiar with the trout in NZ, not many people know that there is also a fantastic shallow water flats fishery there. We were in a place called Golden Bay, which sits at the top end of the South Island. Each summer as the water warms, huge stingrays cruise the flats (think car hood sized, not the little texas ones). Following the sting rays come yellow tailed kingfish looking to eat what ever the rays stir up. Normally a deepwater species, kingfish are a member of the jack family and fight just like the rest of them. All fishing is on foot and in water from knee to chest deep. The sting rays can be seen from far away as they are jet black and then its just a question of running through the water to get close enough to cast at one to see if there are kings following. They will hit streamers and top water and fight like demons! The weather was a mixed bag and really affected the trout fishing – will post the trout pics when I get them. Enjoy! Fishing was organized through the excellent aussieflyfisher.com
Join the Texas Council and the Fort Worth Fly Fishers for a fun filled day on the Brazos River below Lake Whitney. The outing will take place at Spivey Crossing RV Park on Saturday, April 21, 2018. Many of us will be there on Friday and stay until Sunday. There are 14 RV sites there with water and electric hookups as well as an unlimited number of tent sites. The access to the river is very friendly and can be waded or you can fish from a kayak or canoe.
