Some of the crew here from Fly Fish Rockport made the trek up to Plano, Texas again last weekend for the Texas Fly Fishing & Brew Festival. Now in its third year, this has quickly become one of the larger events for the Texas fly fishing community. And certainly it is the largest for the Dallas/Fort Worth area. So Capt. Jeff and Capt. Gibson packed up, grabbed a shiny new Towee Calusa, and headed up to Plano. This event is a two-day show combining all things fly fishing, with a number of micro breweries. Visitors are able to sample a variety of craft beers, while checking out all the
We are now a good week or so removed from trip up to GRTU's Troutfest. This was the first year that we have been able to exhibit, or even attend, the event up there. But Capt. Phil, having formerly been one of the organizers of the entire event, kept insisting that Fly Fish Rockport had a presence there. So we decided to jump at it and see what happened. Of course we were well aware of the event each year, and the outstanding reputation it's always had. We just had never taken the time out of our very busy Spring fishing season to make it happen. But definitely it
As we sit here, on a rainy and cold Tuesday, we wanted remind everyone that we will be heading North to the Guadalupe River on Friday. GRTU's Troutfest is this coming weekend, and we will be hanging out in our booth with the crew from Towee Boats. GRTU’s Troutfest Texas is the largest event of its kind in Texas and brings out a crowd of over 3,000 people interested in fly fishing and preserving and protecting cold water fisheries. The event is hosted by the Guadalupe River Chapter of Trout Unlimited, the largest TU chapter in the country with over 5,500 members. The three-day event includes keynote speakers, live
As many of our faithful readers know, our Fly Fish Rockport crew got together with a few friends for a little bonding time. Some called it a corporate retreat. Others called it a vacation. And still others simply showed up to get away from the oppressive August heat here in Texas. Regardless of what they called it, bags were packed and flights were booked for the great white North of the Alaskan backcountry. A year prior, Capt. Jeff was invited up to this same location to shoot a short film fly fishing for northern pike. Capt. Jeff has a rather long history of fly fishing for pike. He has
Well, as they say, all good things come to an end. This includes our little "corporate retreat", or vacation if you want to be real about it. But what a time we had. Good stuff all around. It was great to have a much needed break from the Summer heat. Also kinda nice to get away from the world and be completely off the grid for a little over a week. No phone calls, emails, text messages or annoying headlines to filter through. It's amazing just how relaxed a person can get, when all those distractions are removed. What a breath of fresh air. But, nothing lasts forever. So
This time of year, things down here around the Texas Coast are pretty darn warm. It's already been a pretty long Summer, and we still have another month or so to go yet. These dog days of Summer are always the hardest for us, as we are already looking forward to our Fall fishing season right around the corner. With that in mind, we decided to try something a little different this year. So for the first time ever, Fly Fish Rockport is having a little corporate retreat. Capt. Jeff figured that everyone has had enough hot weather for now. So the poling skiffs are stowed away and the
