Hello Everyone, the IFFF Texas Council Fly Fishing Expo is THIS WEEKEND in Grapevine!!!!
This will be the largest fly fishing event to be held in the DFW area in a very long time. I encourage to you come out and participate so we can attract more events like this to the area. And besides, this is going to be a great event. There is a large variety of activities going on this weekend including 11 different fly casting workshop topics, multiple fly tyers, kayak demo’s, fly fishing presentations, youth activities, FOOD!, vendors, and there is even a screening of one of the fly fishing series films (these films are a lot of fun if you’ve never had a chance to see one.) And hey, it is being held in downtown Grapevine, so, there activities nearby for a non-fly fishing spouse to do.
The Fly Casting workshops will be led by a half dozen IFFF Master level casting instructors in addition to another dozen IFFF certified instructors. This will be one of the largest gatherings of experienced casting instructors ever in Texas. The casting workshop topics include: Beginning Fly Casting, Intermediate Level, Women’s Casting Cultivation, Intermediate Fly Fisher, Go Deep – Casting and Fishing Sinking Lines Successfully, Seeking Salt – Casting Strategies for Saltwater, Accuracy Casting, Double Hauling 401, Two Handed Spey Casting: Texas Style, Single Handed Spey Castings: Texas Style, Getting Control of Weight: Casting Weighted Flies and Nymphing Rigs, and Refining Your Cast: Gaining Efficiency. Without a doubt, there is something for every casting skill level this weekend.
There are more excellent fly tyers at this event than I can list, but they include Kelly Gallop, who will be demonstrating the “Sex Dungeon” fly among others, Pat Cohen and Mike George, two of the country’s best deer hair bug tyers, Fred Hannie and Mike Morphew, tying realistic flies, Kyle Hand, one of America’s best full dress salmon fly tyers, and many, many more fly tyers. If you tie flies or are interested in tying flies, you don’t want to miss this weekend!
So, here is your personal invitation to come out to Grapevine this weekend starting Thursday evening through Saturday to see the best fly fishing show ever held in Texas!
