The Dallas Fly Fishers will be hosting an informal fly casting practice session Tuesday evening, July 21. This will be a very informal event and everyone of all skill levels is welcome.

** You are also invited to tonight’s DFF meeting, Monday, July 6. The featured speaker will be Steve Soule, http://www.theshallowist.com . He will be discussing saltwater fly fishing. The meeting starts a 7:00 pm at the Wyndham Park Central hotel near Coit and LBJ. **

This month will feature a discussion on Distance Casting skills lead by another of DFF’s casting instructors, Rick Brown, IFFF CI . Rick will start about 6:30 pm and this is open to anyone that is interested attending.

Here are the details:

Date: Tuesday, July 21
Time: About 6:00 pm until everyone leaves
Place: Anderson Bonner Park; located on Park Central Drive between 635-LBJ and Forest Lane in Dallas
>> We’ll meet on the south end of the park near Forest Lane at the parking meters across the street from Medical City Hospital Dallas. So, bring quarter or two with you.

This “casting practice” session will be an informal get together similar to what used to be done prior to DFF’s monthly meetings. Formal casting lessons will not be offered during these sessions, but we’ll address any casting topic that the participants are interested in. This will be an opportunity to discuss and practice anything from beginning to advanced casting skills, and it will be an opportunity to visit with other club members. These sessions are open anyone that wants to participate.

Redfish in Galveston??? Who knew???

Steve Soule had one of the more interesting guide presentations I've seen at last night's DFF meeting. I've listened to a number of guides over the years and while the trips sound like a lot of fun, most of them were for locations that I'll never visit or were just too expensive for my tightwad personality.

But, this one is intriguing, after all Galveston is not that far way...

OK, Galveston does not have the really big fish sizes, you're better going to Louisiana for those, and they leave the area in the winter. But it sounds like they have good numbers of smaller to mid sized fish, and more importantly, he is sight fishing for them in very shallow (less than a foot deep) water. This trip could be a lot of fun.

If you're interested, Steve will be speaking tonight (July 7) at the Fort Worth meeting at 7:00 pm.


Road trip time????
