At this all-day event, anglers from novice to expert will gather at Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center to celebrate the sport of fly-fishing. Learn the basics of fly-tying and casting, then fish for rainbow trout at the on-site ponds and streams. Attend seminars and demonstrations led by fly-fishing professionals. Visit with vendors of fly-fishing services and equipment.
Fly-fishing clubs from across Texas will be on hand to help anyone who wants to learn or improve existing skills. Equipment will be provided for casting classes, but participants are welcome to bring their own gear.
Check Texas Parks and Wildlife Dept. website. All activities are free with regular admission to TFFC.

What a great day at the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center! The weather was perfect and the interest in fly fishing was HUGE! Texas Women Fly Fishers were present and selling flies for the benefit of Casting for Recovery, www.castingforrecovery.com. We met many women new to fly fishing and ones that we hope will join us at future outings.
There were some great seminars on urban fishing and Hill Country fishing holes. The fly tying room was filled with some of the areas best, including the skilled, artful tier, Kyle Hand. Many trout were pulled from the pond on the grounds, even with the numerous kayak demonstrations in the water.
TWFF appreciates our tables at this event and thanks Walter McLendon for inviting us to participate yearly!
We always need more warm water flies to sell at this event. So if you tie flies or can purchase extra flies for our club fly boxes, we’d greatly appreciate your support. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to donate flies.
