ABOUT US >>
We love to tie flies, fly fish, fly cast, and teach others.
The Rio Grande Valley Fly Tyers Club is the only fly tying club in the state of Texas chartered through the Internatonal Federation of Fly Fishers. We are also one of the youngest clubs in the Texas Council. Being a new club means one thing, we are ready to listen to you and make every effort to place the club's resources at your disposal. RGVFTC keeps a blog with current information. Visit the RGVFTC Blog.
One can certainly buy flies from a local fly shop or order them online and many fly fishers do. However, those that tie flies on their own develop a special and unmistakable pride. Chances are that after a while, we begin to develop a fondness for the personally hand-tied flies in our fly box.
With fly tying skills honed by personal experience and conversations with other members, we want to help you to integrate and improve your fly tying and fly fishing skills. Our club activities are also designed to refine fly casting and and on the water presentation skills.
Club officers and experienced members are obligated to share what they know with those entering the sport. We are committed to giving back to the sport that has given so much to us. New members are encouraged to ask questions, lots of questions.
On the other hand, if you come with skills that we don't have, then here's an opportunity to share your passion of fly tying and fly fishing. We need members to promote this wonderful sport.
Hope you can join us.
Dr. Reynaldo Ramirez, Jr.,
President, Rio Grande Valley Fly Tyers Club
