Paluxy River Outing, March 24-26, 2017

May 28, 2017

The March outing took about 20 TWFFers to the Paluxy River in Glen Rose, hosted by Sharon Leissner with her side-kick, Kay Jackson. For those of you who may not know, the Paluxy River is best known for its dinosaur tracks that are imbedded in the limestone river bottom that runs through the State Park. This part of Texas was a swampy beach mil-lions of years ago, and fossil hunters come to the area to look for treasures.

Guadalupe River, Jan. 27-29, 2017

May 28, 2017

This year’s outing on the Guadalupe was held the weekend of January 27-29, 2017 and it was a big success thanks to all who attended! It was a great kick-off to the 2017 TWFF outings season. We had a solid turnout of about 27 members, guests, and new members. The weather was a bit chilly on Friday afternoon, but Saturday was nice and Sunday was a bluebird day! Several members arrived a day or more in advance of the outing to scout out the area and had some time to settle in. We had a nice contingent of those with campers, who stayed near each other, which provided a lot of fun and fellowship around the campfire at the end of each day. Sharon Leissner and Lori McElroy were among the campers and served as hosts to this year’s event.

Broken Bow, OK November 14–16, 2014

Another great adventure under our belt! Even with very cold temperatures and the threat of bad weather that actually did result in some sleet on Sunday morning and into Monday, a fun time was had by all. I think we definitely proved that there are no “fair weather” fishers in this club. Those of us who brought warm gloves and gear were very thankful for it early in the morning and late in the evening.  Every visit to the fabulous waters of the Lower Mountain Fork River of Southern Oklahoma seems better than the previous one. Our group of novice to expert women fly fishers caught plenty of fish despite the cold weather and showed up in force to try their hand at fishing this great river.  The leaves were changing and the beautiful and colorful surroundings were enjoyed by all.

Saltwater Outing Port Aransas, TX September 5–7, 2014

September 5, 2014

Hosted by Karen Gebhardt and Pat Carlson

This year’s saltwater outing in Port Aransas was held about a month earlier than previous years. We again had our headquarters and the Executive Keys condos, right on the beach. This is a wonderful location and great for this type of group activity. We had about 30 members and their significant others attend. Great turnout!

We were all anxiously watching the weather and tracking Tropical Storm Dolly through the Gulf. She made landfall in Mexico, just south of Brownsville, a couple days before the outing. Unfortunately she brought with her lots of seaweed and rip tides which put a damper on surf fishing. Undeterred, we setup our beach tent anyway and had wonderful casting instruction Saturday morning from Diane Blair and Sheila Anderson.

Lady Bird Lake Austin, TX July 25–27, 2014

Urban angling is a not-to-be-missed experience I recommend everyone add to their bucket list. The solitude we feel when we are on the water with rod ready to cast to that soft spot just beyond the ever protective weeds that defend the bass’s domain, can be suddenly interrupted by the wail of sirens as emergency vehicles scream to the location of an early morning call. A conversation with your friends as you paddle from the launch site to where you’ll begin your drift gets drowned out by the train whistle sounding at each intersection of traffic it approaches and the rumbling vibrations created from the nearness of it. You are reminded quite often that you have not left the city, rather you seem to be directly in the midst of chaos as you adapt to these stimuli.
