Notes from Jack Bartell, THCFF fly-tying leader 

"I'm an avid fly angler and fly tier. I especially enjoy tying flies designed for our Hill Country waters by local friends and fly fishers. And even more, enjoy fishing these flies for native fish. Our Club sponsors the "3rd Thursday" fly-tying night in Waring, TX (only a few hundred yards from the Guadalupe River). I hope to see you there.  

All interested, experienced, or newbies are welcome to come and tie whatever flies they'd like. We promise a fun, happy environment to learn, teach, and socialize. Please join us!"
