Make plans for Rendezvous first weekend of November

Toledo Bend Rendezvous
November 2-4, 2018
North Toledo Bend State Park, Zwolle, LA

What is Rendezvous?  It's the oldest, pure fly tying event east of the Rockies, currently celebrating its 30th year. Tiers from Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, and elsewhere get together at North Toledo Bend State Park for a weekend to fish and tie flies. There's no planned activities, but plenty of fly tying, food, fly casting and fishing, with only a minimal fee to cover lodging and meals.

The activities take place at the park's group facility, which features a commercial kitchen and dining hall, and lodging available for up to 150 people in 5 heated log bunkhouses (30 beds each). There's also a heated central shower and restroom building with nice night lighting on all the sidewalks and a large main log building with A/C, picnic tables and a large barbeque trailer.

Attendees can come for a weekend (lodging and meals included) or just for the day (Saturday). The event is open to the public.

Held the first weekend of November each year, the Toledo Bend Rendezvous (aka Southern Fly Fishers Rendezvous) is co-sponsored by the IFFF Texas and Gulf Coast Councils.  For complete details, go to the Toledo Bend Rendezvous home page.

October 15 fly tying - Surface Seducer DB Popper

KFF monthly fly tying session
Monday, September 17, 2018
Rapides Westside Library, 5416 Provine, Alexandria

Gene Taylor will lead us in tying the Surface Seducer Double Barrel Popper.  This fly can be used for bass, redfish, speckled trout and a wide variety of other species.

The Double Barrel by Flymen Fishing Company is an innovative, soft foam popper body that makes it easy to tie both popper and slider flies.  Tie with the cup facing forward to create popper flies. Or tie in reverse to create slider and diver flies.

Beginners and guests are welcome. If you don't have tools, the club has a few sets for use during the session.  Materials will be provided.
