Texas FlyFishers
Houston, Texas

Dear Fellow Fly Tyer,
It’s that time of year again. On Saturday, February 7th, 2015, the Texas FlyFishers will
host the 23rd 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. Joining us at this year’s Festival will
be Drew Chicone, author of Feather Brain – Developing, Testing and Improving
Saltwater Fly Patterns, to share some of the techniques outlined in his book as well as
teaching us how to tie some of the unique patterns illustrated in this and his other books,
Redfish Flies, Snook Flies, Essential Bonefish Flies-Andros and, Essential Permit Flies.
To find out more about Drew, his books and some of his patterns, check out his website,

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.
