Trip Description: 27th Annual Red Fish Rodeo we have checked the tournament and event schedule for Rockport/Port Aransas area and it looks like our date October 19, 2011) is a go. I am anticipating this years outing to be very well attended as we will be inviting members from the Alamo, Austin, Central Texas, Montgomery and Rockport Fly
clubs as well as the salt fishers from the Texas Federation of Fly Fishers. Friday night we will hold the Captain’s meeting at the Drifter’s Resort to go over the rules and conduct for our event. Saturday night The Texas Flyfishers will serve up some hot’-n-good mouth-watering Bar B Q for supper for all to enjoy. We’ll also have some new-age acoustic Bluegrass Americana music scheduled for Saturday night while we get to know each other and share a few cold ones! As always we will have some really cool Division Awards for the winners
(Largest Redfish – Trout – Three Fish Slam) and wonderful door and raffle prizes for all of the lucky attendees to partake.

This year we are also arranging Cabins and Bungalows for those of you who wish to stay for several days. I will ask you to keep in touch with our website’s forum to keep knowledgeable on all of our plans.
Keep checking right here for Outing updates. The Drifters Resort for now is planned to be our tournament center. We are asking that everybody RSVP so we’ll have an accurate count of those who wish to attend. The Cost for all of this is only $45.00 pre-event (thru PayPal) or $55.00 at the door (Friday night). Separate lodging cost willbe posted on the website as they become available.
