President’s Letter

What a joy it is to spend time with another fly fisher. Time to enjoy being outside, in a stream, pond or lake with a fishing friend is a time to cherish. We are a passionate community — fly fishing enthusiasts who enjoy continuing to learn as we grow in our sport. However you have come to join our Fort Worth Fly Fishing club, we are very happy that you found us and hope you will join many of our activities through the year.

As you will see in this month’s newsletter, March is a very busy time for Fort Worth Fly Fishers. We have a number of activities and upcoming events on the schedule, not to mention the first days of spring fishing and the legendary sand bass run, with our annual outing pursuing sand bass on March 25, hosted by FWFF Education Director Russell Husted.

On Saturday, March 11, Tarrant Regional Water District will host the 8th Annual TRWD Flyfest along the banks of the Trinity River. Fort Worth Fly Fishers is an annual sponsor of this popular event and provides many of the volunteers needed to support the day’s activities, from fishing and casting competitions to educational seminars and fly tying demonstrations. Many FWFF members have volunteered as monitors at the Big Trout Contest and at the Accuracy and Distance Casting competition. Flyfest 2023 promises something for the whole family. Kids’ activities are available, with local food and drink vendors rounding out the experience. There is no admission charge for this event. For details, check out the TRWD Flyfest website. Stop by the FFI and FWFF booth and say HELLO!

From March 17-19 we will share a booth with Fly Fishers International at the National Fishing Expo, coming to Fort Worth for the first time. This is a new outreach event for our club to engage with fishers of all disciplines and hopefully attract them to fly fishing and specifically to FWFF. We could use your help at the booth – so if you are interested in helping reach out to Russell Husted at or myself. A link to the event is here.

Wishing you Tight Lines,
Brett Morehead
FWFF President
