Speaker-March 2019 Monthly Meeting; Pat Vanek

Our speaker for the Tuesday, March 26, 2019 monthly meeting will be Pat Vanek who will be telling us all about fly fishing for white bass and hybrids.

Pat has been fly fishing for spring run white bass in central Texas for over 25 years and over those years, he has learned how to successfully find and catch white bass as they travel upstream from reservoirs to spawn. Pat says: “Someone once said that white bass are the perfect fly rod fish, if not, they are close”.  Although they can be caught in deep, slower pools, his favorite way to target them is in crystal clear, skinny, flowing water. Most times in this scenario, Pat says you can see the fish take the fly! In addition to white bass, he has been known to throw a fly at everything that might eat one, bass, carp, channel cat, drum, reds, sunfish…you name it!

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 Tuesday, March 26, 2019 monthly meeting. We would be glad to have you and look forward to seeing you at the meeting.

Trout in the Classroom Update

Sorry it has taken a while for an update on the club trout tanks – unfortunately we had a rough time this year with hatching the eggs and lost a lot compared with previous years. This years eggs are brown trout, as opposed to rainbows in all previous years, and came from a new hatchery so its been a steep learning curve this time round. However all 14 tanks are still going and we still have 100’s of baby brown trout growing on and seemingly now healthy and feeding well!
