my first black drum on a fly. caught 3 that day and 2 the next.
We have received word from the IFFF that all of our paperwork has been approved and we now have the status of an IFFF Chartered Club. It took allot of work and I want to personally thank the officers for helping to get everything in order to make the charter status happen.
We have still allot of work to do in the coming year and I want to encourage all members of RGVFTC to lend their support and a helping hand as we move forward from this point on.
Thank you and congratulations…Continue

A few years ago, I stumbled upon an article in Texas Outdoor Magazine that covered fly fishing for flounder. The flies used were primarily clouser-style flies and the technique was a slow retrieve with a fast one-foot strip every so often. With that information I headed to the Arroyo Colorado on a misty Thursday morning and tried dredging the bottom with a then new 8wt Lamiglas rod and scientific angler intermediate line.

When we left the convention center I really had no idea what we would find which is the way I feel everytime I hit the beach. There is so much impredictability. You never know what the water conditions will be. Murky water, high winds, no birds, and you name it can make it difficult to find fish. This trip was an exception. The water was clear, the winds were tolerable, the birds were acting as beacons, and the fish were there. Our problem was connecting. Why? What did we learn?

Stanley, you guys ( especially your girl friend) did a great job putting this ecent together. I really learned alot. Who do we owe for the food and drinks? I think you are going to get this organization going again, if you need any help just let me know.
The notice was squesed in between 2 columns and was truncated. Please don't purge me.
Can anyone tell me what the bottom is like and what the water depth is in the area behind the convention center and to the north of that location? Looking at a sat. photo, it would appear that it goes from sand to grass.
