2018 Lydia Ann Fly Masters Tournament

From Steve E.

“I spent this last weekend working at a fly fishing retreat put on by Reel Recovery and Project Healing Waters for vets with cancer near San Antonio.  I got to know some of the guys from the Alamo Fly Fishers club.  Great bunch of guys.  They have a fishing tournament that they are sponsoring down at Port Aransas on October 27.  We need to add it to our website  and promote it to our club for the saltwater fisherman looking for a late October outing.  I attached the link. http://www.lydiaannflymasters.com. I’m also ccing Nick Scarpinato.  He is the President of the Alamo Fly Fishers in case you want more info.

Cheers,

Steve”
