Toledo Bend Rendezvous - A Gathering of Fly Tiers

Twenty-eight years ago, a group of fly fishermen from Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, and elsewhere decided to get together for a weekend in November at North Toledo Bend State Park to fish and tie flies.  And with that, "Rendezvous" was born.  Since then, the tradition has continued and grown, with Rendezvous held the first weekend of November each year.

This year, Rendezvous will be held at North Toledo Bend State Park the weekend of November 4-5.

Rendezvous is co-sponsored by the IFFF Texas and Gulf Coast Councils, and is one of the top tying events in the country. There's no planned activities, but plenty of fly tying, food, fly casting and fishing, with only a minimal fee to cover lodging and meals ($40 weekend, $20 day or night).  The activities take place at the park's group facility, which features a commercial kitchen and dining hall, and lodging available for up to 150 people in 5 heated log bunkhouses (30 beds each). There's also a heated central shower and restroom building with nice night lighting on all the sidewalks and a large main log building with A/C, picnic tables and a large barbeque trailer.
