Spring is a great time to be a member of Fort Worth Fly Fishers! We’ve got a lot of things happening and a lot of great opportunities for our members.
On Feb. 2 at 7 p.m., FWFF will host fly-fishing instructor, guide, author and speaker Landon Mayer from Florissant, Colo. Those of you who have heard Landon speak in the past know this is one not to be missed. Further information and a Zoom link will be sent to FWFF members prior to the event. Learn more about Landon here and in this newsletter.
On Feb. 20, FWFF will host its annual FlyFish101 on the Brazos River at the Possum Kingdom tailrace Texas 16 bridge (GPS coordinates: 32.858747, -98.411307). This is a great opportunity for beginners to get some actual time on the water in pursuit of rainbow trout while receiving individual instruction and guidance. In accordance with our COVID-19 precautions, we will not be serving our traditional cookout lunch this year. Food will not be provided, so please plan accordingly. We will be following recommended COVID-19 protocols. For specific details, look for the article in this newsletter.
The club has been invited to participate in this year’s Cowtown Great American Cleanup by adopting a section of the Clear Fork of the Trinity River. This event is scheduled for March 20 from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. This project is sponsored by Keep Fort Worth Beautiful, and KFWB-AM radio, who will provide work gloves to participants. For more information, see the article in this newsletter.
Last month, we initiated a member survey which was sent to the FWFF via email. The purpose of the survey is to assist the Board of Directors in future planning to ensure we are meeting the needs of our members. Your voice is important, and your input is valued. If you have not already taken the 10-minute survey, please do so. The survey can be found at https://s.surveyplanet.com/867VMG9vi If you have completed the survey, thank you!
