Athens: Fly Fish Texas


March 8 at 9:00am to at 4:00pm
Join the TFFC on March 8th for Fly Fish Texas.

Fly fishing clubs and anglers from across Texas come to the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center to share fly fishing tips and techniques and teach them to others. Aimed at the novice fly fisher, this event is designed to teach you how to tie a fly, cast it and catch a fish with it, all in the same day!

Fly Fish Texas emphasizes hands-on learning and immediate application of newly acquired skills. Visitors can collect aquatic insects from the center's streams, tie a fly to imitate one of those insects under the supervision of a skilled tier, learn to cast it from a casting instructor certified by the Federation of Fly Fishers, then use it to catch a rainbow trout, catfish or sunfish from one of TFFC's stocked ponds or streams.
