I think everyone agrees that this outing was a great success! TWFF is growing, learning, organizing, and sharing more and more with each of our outings. At least 25 women made this trip, the Homer Martin Ranch people treated our group quite well, and the grounds were beautiful.
Kayaking down the Llano River was a first for me and many others, and I can say it was truly a terrific experience (thanks in part to my personal “guide” Sherri Ray, who saved me from the now-famous Kayak-Eating Tree!) Quite a few stories were told Saturday evening about everyone’s experience with this part of the river, and I am glad to say, everyone did eventually make it through! I think a lot of women fly fishers really bonded that day on the river, and I for one was grateful to see so much camaraderie. A few of us were totally exhausted after this outing, but after a little rest, many were ready to do it again.
Our dinner on Saturday was delicious (thanks to Tracy Martin), and the after-dinner raffle was a big hit, even if I did lose! Sunday morning’s business meeting was very beneficial in continuing the organization of the officers and members.
