Early Sat morn the 13th, my computer was visited by a cleaning crew... Some gremlins re-configuring some stuff more than anything. NOT MY CHOICE. Since all the software, hardware, dinner ware, underwear, swear ware I needed to get back up and running, I had left strewn somewhere between nowhere and kingdom come.

Club Stuff

Pay your dues with PayPal

Membership dues for Texas FlyFishers cover the Club fiscal year - from 01 July through 30 June - so if you haven't already done so it is time to renew. Our dues have been unchanged for the last fifteen years and this year we have added a PayPal membership dues payment option for those of you that prefer the convenience of electronic payment. You do not need a PayPal account to use this feature and can pay with your credit card. Using PayPal means that the club website does not have access to any of your billing information. If you are not comfortable with electronic payment systems please use the conventional SnailMail option. See the Membership page for more details.

Texas River Guide from TPandWDTexas River Access

"There are 3,700 named streams and 15 major rivers that meander through 191,000 miles of Texas landscape. These vastly important aquatic ecosystems play a major role in protecting water quality, preventing erosion, and providing nutrients and habitat for fish and wildlife. Along the way, water that eventually flows into seven major estuaries, supports over 212 reservoirs, countless riparian habitats, wetlands, and terrestrial areas. Each year Texas rivers and streams provide recreational opportunities to millions of Texans and visitors from all over the world.
The Texas River Guide provides river enthusiasts with an ever growing source for internet based information related to Texas Rivers. However, rivers are a natural resource that can be dangerous. When planning to recreate on rivers your individual skill level or the skill level of the least experienced person in your river party should dictate the level of river activities you should participate in."
The guide provides information on access to the rivers in Texas but it is not yet complete. Check it out at Texas River Guide .

January 2015 Meeting

Our speaker for January 2015 will be Steve Hollensed . Steve began fishing Lake Texoma in the 1960's and Lake Ray Roberts immediately after its completion in 1987. He now guides fly anglers on those productive waters in search of inland stripers, smallmouth bass, and largemouth bass.

Steve is also an IFF Master Certified Casting Instructor and is a member of the IFF Casting Board of Governors. He will be speaking to the club about fly fishing for bass.

\

So, if you are interested in learning about fly fishing for bass and in picking up some casting tips, if you are interested in watching some fine fly tyers before the meeting; or, if you just want to visit and mingle with others interested in the sport of fly fishing, come on by, you are welcome and we would be glad to have you.


About the Club

The socail scene before the meeting begins.

The social scene before the meeting begins.


A Houston based non-profit organization associated with the Federation of Fly Fishers and dedicated to the promotion of fly fishing education, conservation, and outdoors ethics.

The Texas FlyFishers of Houston was founded in 1976 by a group of avid fly fishermen. Their objectives then, as ours are now, were to share their knowledge of fly fishing with one another and others who wanted to learn, to help in conserving our natural resources, to enjoy the camaraderie of fly fishing, and to have a good time doing it.

We have an active club with a full range of activities. There is something for everyone, from beginner to expert, from the very young to those who remember when all fly rods were made of cane, and for all skill levels, from those who haven't yet held a fly rod to those who can cast more fly line than you can buy.



Texas FlyFishers

Attendance varies between 50 and 70 each month.
