The organizers of the upcoming 2nd Annual Texas Fly Fishing & Brew Festival will be hosting a very special “Bass Bugs & Brew Movie Night” in support of our cause and the thousands of veterans we serve nationwide. Below is a press release announcement for the upcoming event to be held on March 9, 2018 in McKinney, Texas.
Join us March 9th from 5:30 PM-9:30 PM for our “Bass Bugs and Brews Movie Night” at Tupps Brewery in McKinney, Texas. We know how important fly tying is to our sport, and in Texas bass dominate much of the state’s water. What better way to start off this year’s Texas Fly Fishing & Brew Festival than by tying bass bugs and drinking great Texas Beer? Fly tyers (and non fly tyers) are welcome to attend our kickoff event, and bring any tying supplies they choose, along with their vice and tie from 5:30-7:30. At 7:30 we’ll have a brief welcome from Dave Klausmeyer, Editor and Chief of Fly Tyer Magazine which is celebrating its 40th Anniversary this year. After Dave speaks, we’ll be showing the latest IF4 movie and you can get a sneak peek by clicking here.
While this event is open to all members of the public, it is a ticketed event. Admission is $15 in advance and $20 at the door (if available). This event is sponsored by Fly Tyer in coordination with the TFFBF, and Tupps Brewery and the first 150 attendees will receive a free issue of Fly Tyer. If all that fly tying makes you hungry, don’t worry food trucks will be on hand, and other fun activities as well as free raffles which is all part of the mix of this year’s TFBF. A portion of all proceeds will go to benefit Project Healing Waters programs in Texas. To order tickets click here.
