You can actually do some pretty decent fly fishing for trout within driving distance from the Dallas Metroplex. Glenn with the COAF field team put together a great video that outlines three of these fisheries. Give him a follow and crush the Like button on YouTube.

Not since Brad Pitt asked the question, "What are they biting on?" has the fly fishing industry had such lofty news! The Wall Street Journal has declared a new renaissance for the quiet sport. It just might be getting a little more crowded on the water.
"Fly-fishing has been growing at an annual rate of nearly 3 percent, says the 2019 Outdoor Foundation report. And since Covid-19, local fishing has picked up. Between January and the end of August this year, for example, Connecticut saw a 6 percent increase in purchases of trout-and-salmon stamps, which tend to be more closely correlated with fly-fishing. New York State saw a 15 percent uptick in fishing licenses over a similar period. A wide variety of fish, including carp, northern pike and Amazonian peacock bass, are now deemed worthy of a fly-fisher’s attention, and additional techniques and tools have been devised to hook, land and safely release them."
They even mention a few well-known fly fishing personalities including April Vokey.

Buddy just Face Timed me from @YellowstoneNPS to ask me what flies work well there. I have a suspicion that he really didn't need to know and was just rubbing in the fact that I'm working and he is fishing. #hoppers. @paislarx1— flyfishmagazine (@flyfishmagazine) August 27, 2020

Just learned that Charlie Garwood, one of the original members of the #BlueRidgeFlyFishingAssoc (pictured lower right), lost his battle with a brain tumor yesterday. Rest in Peace, my friend. #LifeisshortFishoften. Glad we could reconnect earlier this year via Zoom. pic.twitter.com/GLMyYuEJ4q— flyfishmagazine (@flyfishmagazine) August 14, 2020
I plan to do a longer post with a few tall tales involving Charlie. In the meantime please keep his family in your prayers.

North Texas fly angler Glenn Bautista has come up with a novel way to fish his area ponds. He has outfitted an Orvis Practicaster practice rod (not normally used for fishing) with a reel and line. This gives me all sorts of ideas.
