Steve's presentation will be "Fly Fishing the Beautiful Backcountry of Toledo Bend".

Please make every effort to attend. Bring a friend and a covered dish.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Here's wishing our members and friends, and all of their families, a most blessed Christmas and a prosperous and healthy 2018.  Hope everyone finds something under the Christmas tree that they can put to good use, especially in pursuit of our favorite pasttime. And let's not forget that at this time of year, to pray for those who are less fortunate, for those in suffering, and for our service men and women away from their homes and families.

The club has lots of fun things in store for 2018. In addition, there are many activities planned by our neighboring friends across the state, and in Arkansas and east Texas.  Check our Calendar page for dates and details.

29th annual Toledo Bend Rendezvous this weekend!

What is Rendezvous?  It's the largest annual gathering of fly tiers in our state, with no planned activities but plenty of fly tying, food, and fishing. Held annually at North Toledo Bend State Park near Zwolle, the event is co-sponsored by the Gulf Coast and Texas Councils of Fly Fishers International, and is open to the public. It kicks off Friday afternoon and ends after breakfast on Sunday morning. Many of the top tiers from the Ark-La-Tex region and beyond will be on hand tying at the numerous tables inside the large dining room.

Five bunkhouses are reserved for overnight stay on Friday, Saturday or both nights. The 2-night fee is $50 family, $40 single, and 1-night fee is $25 family, $20 single. Those coming just for the day Saturday are asked to make a donation to help offset the rental fees. For more details on this event, check Bowfin47's post on the General Discussion forum.  Or go to this link at Walter McLendon's website.
