Dear Fellow Fly Tyer,

Well, it’s that time of year again and, I’m proud to announce that on Saturday, February 11th, 2017, the Texas FlyFishers will celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Annual Dr. Ed Rizzolo Fly Tying Festival and I would like to extend you an invitation to be part of this great event. The Festival will take place in the auditorium at the Bethany Christian Church, 3223 Westheimer Road in Houston, Texas, from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, with lunch and refreshments provided for the tyers.

Joining us at this year’s Festival will be David Nelson of White Plains, NY. If you’re not familiar with David’s flies, the best way I can describe them is flatwing flies, with a flair. David’s patterns and tying style have also been featured in David Klausmeyer’s book Striper Bass Flies, Patterns of the Pros and Bob Popovic’s latest publication Fleye Design: Techniques, Insights, Patterns. You can also find out more about David’s style of tying and his patterns on his website www.squimpishflies.com .

From its humble beginnings in 1993, the Festival has grown into one of the areas premier events, consistently attracting the top fly tiers from all over the country. This event could not be the success it is without the participation of tyers like you. With your support, it is our hope that the Fly Tying Festival will continue to grow in size and reputation. Please make plans on being of this great event.

Regards,

Chris Sumers

Event Chairman

Please send in your RSVP by January 7, 2017 to Raymond Lindeen at raymond@houstonanalytical.com or, to me at Csumers@comcast.net .

Presentations and speakers for clubs in 2017

December 4, 2016 General News 2 Comments
Texas Council  Members. Exciting news for 2017!!! To help clubs with getting speakers for the monthly meetings, we are adding a new feature for clubs to access. The vision is to start recording club’s presentation’s and acquire presentations from notable speakers to place in a library, that will be available for any club to use. This will really benefit smaller clubs, new clubs, or clubs that have a cancelation or trouble getting a presentation for a meeting. We will be posting up an example soon on the website for all to see. We ask that you help us by providing material, for this new vision. If you have something we could use, please let us know.
Here is the link that will be used for this purpose:
We are also looking into a “LIVE” application, where clubs and individuals can see presentation’s, tying sessions, and even casting exercises LIVE from the Texas Council website.
Stay tuned for more!!!!

WELCOME

Welcome to the Texas Council!! The Texas Council was formed  to unify the clubs in our state. Texas was previously divided with the northern clubs belonging to the Southern Council and the rest of the state belonging to the Gulf Coast Council. A unified state is beneficial in many ways that will support and grow fly fishing in Texas.

Please provide any comments, suggestions, or activities you wish the Council to consider. We greatly appreciate your support.

Sincerely,

Texas Council
Fly Fishers International (FFI)
