Fly Fishing

Are you looking to hone in your fly fishing skills in Texas? Are you ready to make the switch from fly fishing for trout, to bass, or from conventional fishing to fly fishing? This is the perfect weekend opportunity to do just that, with our resident expert Stephen Woodcock. Largemouth bass take flies readily, grow big quickly and give a strong often acrobatic fight. They will strike top water flies so hard that it will make your heart skip a beat.

Largemouth bass thrive in most warm north Texas rivers and lakes which makes learning how to catch them close to home (at this event) quite convenient for those in Central Texas. If you want hand to hand combat and a tug of war fight with a big bass, come join us for this weekend adventure.

All prices are calculated for double-occupancy. We will always match you with a roommate of the same sex. You can request a single supplement for a small upcharge due on your final payment.

Additional Information

Meals

Meals are included from dinner on Day 1 through breakfast Day 3. Hearty breakfasts, lunches, and dinners will be cooked and served on site. *Most dietary restrictions can be accommodated with advance notice

Accommodations

While you aren't fly fishing, relax in an incredible, fully furnished lodge near the water complete with satellite TV, lighted washer pit, beautiful large fire pit, game room with wet bar, butlers pantry, shuffleboard, pool table, flat screen TV, indoor/outdoor sound system, fireplace, screened in porch with fans, BBQ'S, ping pong, fully equipped laundry and kitchen and truly exquisite western interior.

Health

This trip is great for all fishing & fitness levels. We will use kickboats (with instruction) in order to move around the lake, and we will do our best to time our fishing around the hot Texas sun (though keep in mind shade while fishing will be scarce).

Single Supplement

All prices are calculated for double-occupancy. To ensure your comfort, we will always match you with a roommate of the same sex – and if we're unable to match you with a roommate, you may end up with your own room free of charge. If sharing is not your idea of fun, you can request a single supplement for a small upcharge when you pay your final amount. You will be able to make this election on your trip registration.
