The TRWD is putting on a local Fly Fishing event to attract interest to our sport! Texas Reel Recovery will have a booth, table, chairs and canopy, but we need someone to take the lead and a few volunteers to help man the booth during the event. This event is on the same day as the Fly Fish Texas Event in Athens. So, if you are not headed to Athens, can take lead or can help out for an hour or two, please email Mike Emerson (firstname.lastname@example.org).
DATE: Saturday, March 12, 2016
TIME: 10:00am – 5:00pm
DESCRIPTION: TRWD Flyfest is a full day of classes, demonstrations, lectures, films, competitions and fun for the whole family. Whether you are an experienced angler or have never touched a fly rod, Flyfest will have something for everyone. To prepare for Flyfest, TRWD will release 2,200 Rainbow Trout into the Trinity River surrounding the festival area to create an optimal angling experience.
Flyfest will be much more than fly tying and casting demonstrations. With cooking demonstrations, craft beer and wine, food, a climbing wall and a place for general fishing for the kiddos there will be something for everyone to enjoy on this fun day along the Trinity River.
LOCATION: Fort Worth, Texas – On the rock shelf located in the Clear Fork of the Trinity River near ACME Brick Corporate Headquarters, along the river banks and inside the Acme Brick headquarters. Parking will be located at the River Park Trailhead
BENEFICIARY: This is a FREE event produced by the Tarrant Regional Water District for the community in partnership with the Fort Worth Fly Fishers and the Texas Council International Federation of Fly Fishers
COST: Admission is FREE, but select lectures may have a small cost to be paid on-site to help cover speaker fees.
