Lone Star Fly Fishers

Club Fishing Days
by Mike Maris

The designated club fishing days for February on the Lower Mountain Fork River are Tuesday February 14th through Sunday February 19th. This is President's Day holiday so you may get in an extra day of fishing. The plan is to meet at Sid Ingram's fly shop around 9:00 am each morning. Sid's shop is on the river inside Beavers Bend State Park. Leave word at Sid's where you will be fishing in case someone gets there late and would like to contact you. Decide that morning where and what time to meet for dinner that afternoon to discuss your day on the river. If you have a LSFF cap, wear it so other members can identify you. If you do not have a LSFF cap, buy one at the next meeting! Two members fished the Lower Mountain Fork in January.

T. R. Rafferty caught the longest fish. Be sure to measure your longest fish. We had a few members sign up at the January meeting to fish specific days in February. This gives members a chance to share rides or rooms and cut down on the cost. If you are interested in fishing the Lower Mountain Fork between February 14th and 19th, call me during the day at 903-561-7373. We have a list and can connect you with someone going fishing the day you want to go. This phone number is an animal clinic, so just tell the receptionist that you are calling about fly fishing. They understand the importance of fly fishing.

Don't forget the February meeting. Will Maloney will be giving us a presentation on King Salmon fishing in Alaska. A trip with Will has been booked for the second week in June. There are four places left for this trip.

Tie One On At Six
By Gordon Bryson

Since we will not be eating as a group prior to the beginning of the Tuesday night meeting, some of us have planned to be at TJC West by about 6 P.M. and do a little fly tying. This is not to replace the Thursday night Fly Tyers Roundtable, but some folks may not be able to make the trip in twice during the same week, so we’re going to add this on. It will be a great time for informal fellowship, share some of your favorite patterns, kibitz, maybe learn a new technique or pattern, and generally have a good time. If you’re interested, please join us. We’ll meet in the same room, and adjourn the tying and lying at 7 P.M.

Also, we’ll be dipping some of these in the fish tank during the regular meeting to see how they look to the fish.


LSFF Fly Tiers Round Table

LSFF Fly Tiers Round TableThe LSFF Fly Tiers Round Table will meet the third Thursday of each month. The meetings will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 at the Tyler Junior College West Campus (RTDC). Everyone is welcome to become a part of the round table. This is a great opportunity for club tiers to get together to tie flies, share techniques and simply enjoy the fellowship of other tiers. Beginning tiers will have the benefit of learning from among the best fly tiers in East Texas. Round table attendees should bring their own tools and material. Tiers will have the opportunity to show the group how to tie their favorite flies.

T. R. Rafferty has returned to Tyler from his summer and fall guiding in Michigan. He is anxious to help new and experienced tiers and brings a professional perspective to this great hobby. Come join us for an evening of learning and fellowship.


Guests and New Members
By Gordon Bryson

The January meeting at the new TJC location was attended by some 20 members and two guests. We were happy to have Peter Cooke, a student at TJC, visit with us and look forward to getting to know him better. Unfortunately, Pete had to leave before the meeting ended and we didn’t get to visit.

We also welcomed Atlihan Binoz for another visit with us. I met Atlihan last year at Faulkner Park Pond fishing for trout and he visited with us before we moved down town. Atlihan teaches math in the Chapel Hill School system and enjoys trout fishing.

We look forward to both visiting with us and considering becoming members. For our members, please try to invite a guest to our next meeting.
