2016-2017 Trout Stocking Season is winding down.  It has been a fun one for the Team. That said, what better way to close out the Season with three fly fishing events scheduled this Saturday March 6 - TRWD Flyfest in Forth Worth, Fly Fish Texas in Athens, and Texas Fly Fish and Brew Festival in Plano!

We republished the details from our last edition in the footer section below. Do check them out; it will be a great opportunity to learn about fly fishing!

Also, do check out recent videos by area fishermen in the section immediately below! Some great action to be had with the last trout stockings, and then it's the White Bass Spawing Run, as well as Bass on their beds! Should be a great Spring for fishermen!

Fly Tying Suggestions


Guadalupana a fishing fly that orginated on the Guadalupe River in the Texas Hill Country. We have used it scaled down to size 12 and 14 as well as used a Dry Fly Hackle Wrap and Palmer Hackle Wrap successfully for trout and bass. Tie them in size 8 and 10, and you should be ready for the Bass this Spring! Do check out steps on how to tie our version of this pattern at COAF Guadalupana!

Damsel Fly is a simple but effective pattern especially on spawning Bass sitting on their beds! It rides hook bend up and while at rest on the bottom, its marabou feathers sway enticingly to and fro... at least until the Bass strike it! Do give this a try this Spring! For more details on tying this pattern, check out the article, "COAF Damsel Fly".

FROM LAST EDITION: Upcoming Fly Fishing Events in March! (SATURDAY - MARCH 6)


TRWD Fly Fest  is happening again this year on the banks of the Trinity River in Fort Worth.

Last year was a great time with fishing presentations, fly tying demonstrations, fly casting instruction and much more!

Throw in some Bruiser Trout and a fishing contest and add live music, wine and beer, and it's a party!

Keep this one in mind knowing there are two other events happening Saturday - March 11!
