9AMFly Patterns for Bass and Panfish in Texas

Time: 09:00 AM - 09:50 AM

Instead of traditional foam poppers, we will look at a few patterns for Bass and Panfish. A couple of newer patterns and a Ray Bergman pattern that is over 100 years old, and still very effective.

Presenter: Dutch Baughman

10AMNymph Patterns for Local Waters

Time: 10:00 AM - 10:50 AM

Hellgrammite nymph (aka Dobson Fly Nymph) and a Burrowing Mayfly Nymph. These two nymph patterns work well for our local rivers and streams. They are imitations of aquatic insects found in local waters and are great attractors for bass, panfish and trout.

Presenter: Barry Webster

11AMThe Brazos River Munch

Time: 11:00 AM - 11:50 AM

The “B.R.M.” Or the “Brazos River Munch” is a scaled down variation of a pattern called the Mad Tom. This simple fly is a great snack size crawfish pattern with a lot of movement that will entice carp, drum, buffalo and anything fish you may throw it in front of.

12PMFly Patterns for Every Fly Box

Time: 12:00 PM - 12:50 PM

Texas is truly a unique fly fishing destination. From native Guadalupe Bass to tailwater trout, the Lone Star State has it all! Chris Johnson has been tying and designing flies for our local waters for over 25 years and in this presentation, he will show you how to tie three of his signature patterns – The Rio Bandito, the Mimic Hopper and the BC Streamer. Chris will thoroughly demonstrate how to tie each pattern and then explain how to fish each fly for various fish species in Texas!
