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.

Matt will tie a selection of flies incorporating all of these elements into a final product and explain decision-making in the materials and techniques used, as well as proper fly design. While this focuses mainly on Central Texas fly fishing, its concepts are applicable just about anywhere.

Chris will walk you through the basics of fly selection for the Lone Star State!  He will show you how to match fly patterns by river/water type and how you can easily be prepared for almost anything!  You don’t have to own or tie all the flies in the world to have a complete box, you just need the right ones for the job at hand.  Chris will also talk about blending boxes and patterns to cover multiple species and situations with fewer flies.
