Sabine River, generation canal, 2020-08-10 report

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.

TFF books for sale, updated 2020-05-28

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.
