I have the story with more information here - Texas Fly Fishing Events 2018 .I am putting together the tournament list - to publish separately - soon as well. Now that we've killed the word "conclave," maybe it's time to set our collective sites on the word "festival?"
keebranch: FWFF Fly Fish 101 - for trout at PK dam
Save the date- Fly Fish 101 On Saturday January 20 from 9:00 am – 12 noon, we will be hosting a free trout lab; that is, you will learn basics for leaders, tippets, and flies for catching trout which are stocked below the dam at Possum Kingdom near Graford Texas. You will not need rods or flies, but will need a valid Texas fishing license to participate. On hand will be a few casting instructors to demonstrate the basics as well as some "fishing instructors" who will help you learn how to mend line in moving current , adjust flies for the best depth to catch fish, and help you learn the best way they know how to catch trout in the Brazos river. Lunch will be provided up in the park near Brazos River authority HQ. and for those who wish to remain fishing will continue. See map below https://dyst39klnifc.cloudfront.net/images/maps/2017_pk_map_web.pdf we will meet below dam in parking lot Bring a friend!
