Club member, Matt Sherwood, recently traveled to Port Mansfield to lead fly tying and casting instruction for a Cross Trails Outfitters (http://teamctotx.wildapricot.org) youth saltwater camp. CTO is a well established ministry with multiple opportunities for mostly teen boy and girls to be able to participate in a variety of hunting and fishing activities. Currently, CTO Buffalo River Chapter in Arkansas is operated by a local guide and artist, Duane Hada with a heavy emphasis on fly fishing and of course, ministry. The CTO chapter out of San Antonio organized this event with an offshore fishing charter boat, 3 bay boats and Matt’s poling skiff. Thus, each day the 12 young men were able to rotate among different boats and experience a variety of fishing.
