Currents - Aug/Sep 2015
Greetings all! The Dallas Chapter helped celebrate Tailwaters Fly Fishing Company's 8th Anniversary with a "cookout on the parking lot". Shawn, Travis and David are great friends and loyal sponsors of the Dallas Chapter and we all had a great time. We reunited with members from long ago and signed up new members on the CCA website. Next on the schedule is a Chapter meeting with our great friends at Mariner Sails in Dallas.
Last weekend the ICC Team from Dallas made way to Rockport for the weekend ICC festivities. We enjoyed many hours on the water looking for the "honey hole" of trout and reds. Unfortunately, we were so impressed with the work of CCA opening Cedar Bayou, we actually spent more time floating in Mesquite Bay, cruising Cedar Bayou and soaking a few casts towards the surf and also into Vinson's Slough. I must say, the current inflow was impressive and the overwhelming abundance of small creatures along the banks was a sight to see. Unfortunately, we did not catch an entry into the tournament despite Richard Pratt's prior day's skill demonstration of catch and release of a 29+", 8.5lb+ redfish. Congrats to Richard, and thank you for the release.
Most of the news from the chapter members is about how much fun people are having on the trips presented at our April Banquet. CCA continues to bring us fantastic trips and merchandise for our banquet, and this year seems to be even better than before. Thank you Drew for all the hard work to make our event so good.
