The Paluxy outing at Glen Rose, Texas, took place April 5–7, 2013 and was lots of fun, thanks to everyone who attended the outing!
Don Carlson caught a huge carp on a 4 wt rod that took him 30 minutes to land, and most everyone else was successful catching bass or sunfish.
Don Carlson shows off his big carp catch of the day!
We had a wonderful auction and a very big thanks to all who donated and bid on items to help make the auction successful! An extra special appreciation goes out to all who helped set up and conduct the auction! We raised lots of money for TWFF, CFR, and our conservation project.
