Texas Fly Fishing & Brew Festival
The Texas Fly Fishing & Brew Festival is a two-day event designed to raise awareness of the region’s incredible fishing diversity, help experienced anglers up their game, and introduce new generations of enthusiasts to the pastime. It will all be washed down with samples of locally crafted microbrews.
The Texas Fly Fishing and Brew Festival will feature lectures and classes on techniques and tactics for novices and advanced casters, as well as provide information on exotic fishing locales and fishing etiquette. Also offered are free women-only casting classes as well as one-on-one instruction in basic knot-tying skills. Experienced anglers may consider enrolling in more advanced distance-casting or Spey-casting classes with expert specialized instructors. There will be kayak demo ponds where folks can actually try out the kayaks before they purchase them. All activities besides the casting classes will be indoors.
A select group of brewmeisters will offer free classes on what sets microbrewed beer apart, why and how certain ingredients yield different flavors, and how to brew and taste different types of beer. Festival attendees 21 years and older will receive a series of tasting tickets with their paid admission. Beer will also be available for purchase during the festival.
