Is there a nicer little place nestled in the rolling Texas hills, cloaked by blue skies than Camp Honey Creek in Hunt, TX?…probably not. The weather was great, as was the company! The fishing, not as good as our last trip there in 2010, but several nice bass and sunfish were caught, oh…and 1 crappie caught by Frances!

Several new members came to be part of our wonderful group and everyone enjoyed the surroundings of Camp Honey Creek. Our new members enjoyed some one-on-one casting lessons and were rewarded by catching their first fish on the fly.
Mark Cole, physical therapist and member of the Fredericksburg Fly club was our speaker Saturday night. Mark’s gentle yet reinforcing demeanor in explaining how proper posture and exercise are essential to everything in our lives hit home for most of us. He not only had simple exercises but he also let us in on some everyday, inexpensive items to use for exercise equipment. Remember to stand up tall and shake that partially full water bottle to build up your casting arm.
We had a wonderful silent auction put together by our very own talented Cindy Organ, that was quite a success! We raised lots of money for TWFF, CFR and for our conservation project. Lots of us went home with big smiles from the cool merchandise that we won.
A big thank you to all that turned out for this outing, the members are what makes this such a great group and the outings so much fun!
