Reynaldo Ramirez Jr has not received any gifts yet
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.

We held our 3rd Annual One Fly Tournament yesterday. Twelve of our members braved the 46 degree morning to try and catch the longest total length of two fish (Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, and Skipjack). Honors went to Marcus Montalvo (53 1/8"), Mike Montalvo (52"), and Bill Shire (51"). Right behind was Jim Carey (50"). Abraham Benavidez caught a 52" limit, but didn't make the weigh in.
