GRAND OPENING EVENT
at 103 N. Brown Street

Living Waters Fly Fishing now has a new home at 103 North Brown Street in Round Rock, Texas! Come out and celebrate with us! Lamppost Coffee (awesome local coffee shop) will be serving coffee when our doors open and there will be plenty of Round Rock Donuts. Matt Bennett with Fly Geek Custom Flies will be fly tying in our new fly tying loft – if you have never watched Matt tie a fly, get ready to be impressed! There will be live music from acoustic guitarist Chandler Hansen throughout the day as well. Gano’s Smokehouse will be serving up BBQ lunch plates at noon ($8 and $12 depending on the plate). TPWD Game Wardens will also be on site with the Operation Game Thief trailer! There will also be three rounds of prize drawings – you do have to enter the free drawing in store, but you don’t need to be present to win! Factory reps from Simms, Ross, Abel, Scientific Anglers, Umpqua, Fishpond, Hatch, TFO and more will be onsite to help answer all of your product questions! Prize items from Simms, Fishpond, Ross Reels, Scientific Anglers, and many more! It will be a shindig to remember, so come help us fill the new digs with fly shop family!

An epic disaster. There’s no other way to put the damage caused by Hurricane Harvey. With the population of Texas and the amount of people hit by the hurricane it’s not unlikely that anyone, anywhere in this country might know friends or family that suffered through this tragedy. If however you live in Texas it is beyond likely that either you or someone you know, be they family, co-worker, or simply the staff of that coffee shop you love in Port Aransas (here’s looking at you Coffee Waves). It’s also likely that if you live in this state you know somebody that volunteered their time to help those effected or hooked their boat up to their truck and headed down to help rescue folks rom the flooding waters (like the folks at Go Outside Expedition Co. and MANY, MANY, MANY more).

There are countless articles that will surely be written about this storm for some time to come, but there’s one unique story that I noticed through my work/blog/social media connections that I’d love to share with you, the readers.

I don’t know if it’s only because for the first time in my life I’ve lived in a state that has suffered such a monumental calamity, but in addition to the AMAZING work of organized relief efforts and courageous individuals there has been a HUGE cry of support from Texas-based businesses. These are people who live here, work here and play here in Texas, be they the Yeti monolith (Austin) or up and coming companies like Sight Line Provisions (Austin). All of the following just happen to be businesses I personally know that contributed all proceeds of one kind or another to Hurricane Harvey relief and as such should be remembered as local businesses that helped fellow citizens out, putting philanthropy for profit. It’s not that a massive check from Amazon isn’t appreciated, but when your dollars spent locally directly feed back into your community those dollars can pack much more of a punch, with a lot more love behind them.

Already happened:

Yeti (Austin): donated all sales (heard it was 1.5 million) on 09/01/17 to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.

Gruene Outfitters (Gruene): inspired by Yeti, donated all sales ($11,500) on 09/01/17 to Salvation Army in the Gulf Coast area.

Epic Bars (Austin): donated $400,000 worth of product (food) to Central Texas Food Bank.

The River House ( Gruene): took all sales from 09/01 ($3,500) and donated to relief efforts. (P.S. Their deviled eggs are to die for.)

Ongoing:

Howler Bros (Austin): donating all sales from limited edition T-shirt to hurricane recovery, $50,000 already raised before Sept. 1st.

Sightline Provisions (Austin/Dripping Springs): already did limited run and $1,300 donation, now donating 50% of all new limited edition bracelets to relief efforts.

Sea Level (Corpus Christi): doing a run of limited edition t-shirts with 100% proceeds going to Corpus Christi Food Bank

Whole Earth Provision Co. (Texas staple): previous employer I love that is now undertaking a fund drive for the Houston Food Bank

I’m sure there are many local Texas companies that I’ve missed here so please feel free to comment with information on a brand / company you love or work for and let us know how they’ve helped so we can support them!

So you love Howler Bros. as well? Then you won’t want to miss this event going on in South Austin tomorrow from 9-4. Just a heads up for anyone that missed their moving sale, the first hour will probably see 80% of the product get scooped up so set your alarm early! See you there!

After ten years of fly fishing obsession it’s dawned on me that i’ve acquired more than enough fly fishing gear to outfit a small posse. Because of this I’ll be featuring a ton of product over the next week or so that is available for CRAZY prices. Think of it as helping a fledgling blog find the finances to continue! All proceeds will go to helping grow this blog!

For this round I’m unloading my arsenal of Cabela CGR’s that I’ve acquired over the last two years. Here is the blurb from Cabelas where they retail for $130 but are currently on sale for $60 (a normal deal Cabela’s does) but where they are almost always backordered. The following is their description from www.cabelas.com

Enjoy a taste of the golden age of fly fishing when you head to the river with the Cabela’s CGR Fiberglass Fly Rod. There’s nothing quite like a fiberglass fly rod when you need to make delicate presentations in close quarters. The CGR’s deep-bending, full-flexing slow action delivers unsurpassed feel and protects light tippets when fighting large fish. High-quality finishing touches include high-grade cork handles with model-specific grips and spigot ferrules. This series offers the five original models with the addition of a 6’2″, 2-weight rod. 5/6- and 7/8-weight rods feature fighting butts. 7/8-weight features a saltwater reel seat. All models include a nylon rod case. www.cabelas.com

I am selling the following models:

CGR 262-3-  this is a 2WT, 6’3″ in three pieces- minimal wear – $40

CGR 359-3-  this is a 3WT, 5’9″ in three pieces- minimal wear – $40

P.S. the 4WT has sold!

P.S. the 5/6 WT has sold!

Note: Because of the low price I am only selling these rods to anyone in Austin or nearby that can pay cash ASAP. It’s just not worth it financially for me or you to ship these rods. (Those rods are coming soon!)

Also note: To be fair to everyone I can not HOLD rods or take credit cards, etc. First to pay wins on this one!

Contact me at Five-one-two-923-6074 if you are committed to buying right away!
