February 27, 2018 Monthly Meeting – Speaker-Danny Scarborough; Fly Fishing in the Houston Area

At the February 27, 2018 monthly meeting of the Texas Fly Fishers, Danny Scarborough http://www.houstonflyfishing.com will be making a presentation about fly fishing in and around Houston.  Danny’s presentation will include urban fly fishing for carp, gar, tilapia and whatever else shows up; bass, carp, gar, crappie and white bass fly fishing on Lake Houston; fly fishing for bowfin, bass, gar and carp on Lake Conroe; and, fly fishing private lakes for big bass and huge bluegill.  Danny is a very knowledgeable fly fisherman and talented fly tyer so his presentation should be a good one.  There is no charge for admission and all are welcome at the meeting.

So, if you are interested in learning more about the fly fishing world, if you are interested in watching 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 February 27, 2018 monthly meeting. We would be glad to have you and look forward to seeing you at the meeting.

2018 Trout In the Classroom Project

The 2018 Trout in the classroom project began last Thursday when I collected roughly 1300 trout eggs from TU and delivered them to this year’s schools. Thanks to the donations from TFF we are now up to 13 Houston area science classrooms running trout tanks. This year’s schools are as follows:

  1. Katy HS – Kathleen Brown
  2. Katy HS – Coach Williams
  3. Katy HS – Jennifer Greenland
  4. Seven Lakes HS – Carlton Colmenares
  5. Mayde Creek HS – Sharon Carswell
  6. Mayde Creek HS – Ashley Griffiths (new)
  7. Mayde Creek HS – Helena Townsend (new)
  8. Cy Lakes HS – Eileen Gariepy
  9. Morton Ranch HS – Leigh Anne Colonna
  10. Morton Ranch HS – Gene Smith (new)
  11. Deer Park HS – Kirby Schmidt
  12. Klein Collins HS – David Henderson
  13. Westbury HS – Lauren Gustartis

The classes will be hatching their trout over the next two weeks and growing them on until they reach 2-3in long. As in previous years we will be releasing them on the Guadalupe in early May. I will be posting regular updates on the progress and if anyclub members have questions or would like to get involved in helping out then please give me a call.
