We have Jerry Hammond and Russell Husted coming in from the Dallas/Fort Worth area. As you know Russell is the president of the Texas Council and Jerry is one of the TC officers (I think). Jerry also introduced me to the Kayak Instruction STAR Fishing Team. The KI STAR Fishing Team is made up of individuals who have a strong desire to grow the sport of kayak fishing through education, tournaments, social events, and social media thus becoming ambassadors for the sport of kayak fishing. Anyway, Jerry will speak on urban fishing and Russell will talk about The Texas Council, Charter membership, and the upcoming Expo in June which will be in New Braunfels.
Jerry’s presentation is to make folks aware of the awesome fly fishing opportunities that exist right in their own neighborhoods. Ponds, lakes, streams, and rivers can be hidden treasure for the Texas fly fisherman. Tips and tactics for Urban Combat Fly Fishing in Texas.
Come join us, 7:00p at the church, Alamo Heights Presbyterian, 6201 Broadway. Hope to see you there!
AFF Vice President
Please join us 16 July, 7pm, at the Alamo Heights Presbyterian Church to hear Walter Ross give a presentation on fly fishing for late run Sockeye salmon on the Kenai River in Alaska. Walter lived in Anchorage for five years and has much experience fishing and hunting many parts of the state. He and David Beck have been making annual pilgrimages to the Kenai for the past 8 years and have countless stories to tell. Walter now owns property in the Kenai peninsula and one day soon hopes to open fish camp rental property.
One of the recurring requests during our monthly club meetings is how can we increase communication between members the other 27 plus days of the month? In addition to our website forums and weekly informal fly tying sessions we have added a Facebook fan page to our club. Here members can check outing schedules, share pictures, videos, your latest fly pattern, and use the medium to help bridge that monthly gap.
