Texas is heating up and it pays to be close to the water, so head over to New Braunfels a city filled with water parks and great water sport activities. And to top it off it will be the venue for the second Texas Fly Fishing Expo "Destination Texas". Online registration closes May 24, 2015 so head on over to the website (http://txflyfishexpo.com/) and register for a great number of events focused on fly fishing.
In the highly anticipated film “Sensei”, Fly Fusion’s steelhead editor, April Vokey, teaches fly-fishing sensation, Hank Patterson, how to Spey cast for steelhead. Hank is a “quick study” and it’s not long before he’s passing along his newfound casting knowledge to other anglers, whether they’re looking for advice or not. Eventually, Hank transitions into the role of expert and is able to impart his sage advice to April as well. In his travels, Hank reveals many sides: the angler, the student, the teacher, the artist and the philosopher. About the only thing he doesn’t know is if his good looks get in the way of the fly-angling world taking him seriously.
