Texas Fly Fishing & Brew Festival//News



We’re proud to announce that we’re a GOLD sponsor and the official “fly fishing education” sponsor of the 1st Annual Texas Fly Fishing & Brew Festival at the Plano Centre, March 11-12.

Our entire staff will rotate through our booth over the weekend, so plan to stop by to see us and check out the festivities, including classes with some of the fly fishing world’s greatest personalities, such as Lefty Kreh, Ed Jaworowski, Wanda Taylor, and Bob Clouser.

The Tailwaters lineup features:

  • // Jonathan Rodgers and Lara Ducker will host complimentary classes Saturday and Sunday, including a family-friendly class and a women’s only class.
  • // We’re also offering a complimentary beginner Spey casting class hosted by Frank Smethurst.
  • // David Leake is presenting three discussion sessions: fly fishing for Louisiana redfish, fly fishing the Yucatan Peninsula, and fly fishing Seychelles.
