FWFF member Les Jackson with a bass from one of his urban waters.
In June Fort Worth Fly Fishers held our first membership meeting via Zoom, and your Board of Directors thought it was a real success. Nearly 50 members were watching as President David Hooper launched the meeting and guest speaker Greg Welander guided us through his home fishing waters in the Texas Hill Country. Our regular meeting venue at the UNT Health Science Center is still closed, so we will again hold our monthly meeting online.
On July 7, the meeting will start with David reviewing club business and then go right into the program. It’s a double-header:
• First, FWFF member Les Jackson will present his long experiences with local and urban waters. For years Les has fooled surprisingly large fish from area creeks, rivers and ponds. He knows you don’t have to drive hours to find fish to catch, and he’ll show you how to do it.
• Then we’ll end the meeting with an Orvis video on the basics of inshore saltwater fishing. It’s an excellent source of information to get you started and on your way to catching some huge fish.
The entire meeting should last an hour. We understand you’ve been on plenty of online meetings lately, and we’ll try to make this as brief, fun, and informative as we can! Please joint us at 7 p.m. sharp.
