2 of us made the trip to Burkeville, TX to fish the generation canal: Sabine River, generation canal We were on the water and fishing by sunrise, ~0630. Using a 5wt and a 6wt we immediately started catching fish. The temperature started comfortable, with just a few vampires, but quickly warmed up as the sun came over the trees. Largemouth bass, Kentucky bass, white bass, bluegill, and yellow sunfish all came to hand. The topwater bite was explosive and almost constant all morning. The flies of the day were: VIP, bendbacks, yellow spiders, C-ants, and a few others.

Club member, Mark Marmon, is looking for an Abel TR 3 spool; any color (almost) any condition. If you are able to help Mark out in his search for this spool please contact him by e mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Nilo has been busy listing even more. There are milk crates of books in storage that have been donated over the years. From what I can guess there are probably a thousand, or so, books. Sitting in storage does no good for our coffers, or your library.
Since the auction has been postponed, we are looking at other opportunities to use these books, that have been donated over the years, as an additional source of income for our club.
The plan is to sell the books and have the proceeds go into the Texas FlyFishers' funds, directly befitting our club, and you.

Captain Mark has been fishing his whole life – he took up the sport at the age of five and has been hooked since. Together with his dad, Mark would regularly go fishing around the freshwater streams of California. He has been featured in various magazines and fishing TV shows. It's no secret that Capt. Mark knows where the best fishing grounds are. He is the president of the Laguna Madre Fly Fishing Association, and needless to say is a specialist in the art of fly fishing. He likes having people on the boat and helping them get on the fish.
I took my 5 year old granddaughter fishing last weekend at my "go to" bluegill / sunfish hole to catch her first fish. Fortunately, as you can tell by the pictures she was not disappointed. She managed to catch 5 on her own with little help from me and about 20 more with some help … Continue reading Social Distancing Fun
