Crowds and Solitude – Lake Tahoe

Destinations, Trout

******************WE'RE SO BACK AND DOING THIS!******************

 

I was turned on to this video by my co-worker Grace a few day ago and have spent much of the last three evenings trying to come up with some witty, insightful text to set the groundwork for how much this video has inspired me to haul ass to the salts ASAP.  Eventually it dawned on me that the reason it was so hard to put the magnificence of this video into words was that it didn’t need it, the video speaks for itself. Enjoy.

Exhilarated as always for another issue of the legendary This is Fly to hit the e-stands, but extra stoked to see local Austin, TX artist Alana Louise Lyons getting her dues as the featured artist! As a once poster designer / screen printer I’m a huge fan of the way she’s brought that loose but controled style into the digital world. Be sure to check it out and enjoy another amazing issue of an incredible e-rag!

Always irreverent, always interesting. S.C.O.F. #28 does not disappoint. Amazing photos and wonderful words presented in the unique way that only Southern Culture on the Fly can pull off with such panache.

 

As any long time reader will know I’ve been a fan of both Rolf Nylinder and Håvard Stubö (of Jazz and Fly Fishing) for quite some time. To watch video of them meeting, fishing and exchanging banter was like introducing two of your closest friends to each other, stepping back and watching them size each other up, all within the framework of some amazing scenery.

As a long time GRTU member living in Austin I am beyond excited to see the local TU chapter holding one of its meetings not only in ATX but at the Yeti headquarters none the less. For all of those like me that have been unable to make the hour drive to previous meetings in Sattler here is your chance to turn up and show that ATX is a huge segment of the local TU chapter. Be there or be square!

Following is information from the GRTU website:

A Focus on Native Trout
For this meeting our featured guests are going to bring a focus to native trout in the American West. Come out and learn where and how to fish for incredible native trout species and what you can do to help protect these fish and the habitat that surrounds them. The program will feature:

Chapter Initiatives
We will also provide some important Chapter updates including:

Please join us, we are excited about this line up and look forward to seeing you there! 

Tournament date: Saturday Oct. 27th, 2018

The annual Lydia Ann Fly Masters Tournament was created to:
• Bring skilled fly fishing anglers together from all over the State of Texas• Have fun, and compete for prizes and awards
• Raise every dollar possible to support Casting for Recovery

Our goal is to create the Premier Fly Fishing, Catch and Release tournament for the Texas Coast, which is fair, fun and open to everybody. Each year a Charitable Organization will be chosen to receive a donation check from all of the tournament proceeds. The tournament has been a great success, raising over $39,000 to date for Casting for Recovery! We look forward to watching the tournament get better each year and hope to see as many anglers as possible at the tournament to support Casting for Recovery’s wonderful cause.
