Saltwater Fly Fishing Outing in Rockport

June 4-7

What: A hosted saltwater fly fishing outing in Rockport with 2 half days of targeted sight casting in shallow water for redfish (with possibilities for other species such as black drum, sea trout, flounder and sheepshead). We’ll have 2 guides, Captains Mason Matejcek and Drew Donaghue each taking 2 girls out in the morning and afternoon on Sunday 6/5 and Monday 6/6.

Who: room for 8 Fly Girl members with Intermediate casting level or better (we highly encourage you to attend Tiffany’s Saltwater presentation on May 22 from 1-3 PM at Gruene Outfitters to get more information and learn about prerequisites). 

Where: A true, registered Texas Historic Landmark – the R.H. Wood House in Rockport, Texas. Built in 1868, it is one of the oldest and most historically important homes in Rockport. Located in Rockport’s Heritage and Cultural Arts District overlooking the Rockport harbor, the property is within walking distance to the beach, restaurants/cafes, shopping, festival grounds, fishing, museums, art galleries and much, much, more!

When: June 4-7. Checking in at 3 PM on Saturday, June 4 and checking out by 11 AM on Tuesday, June 7.

Cost: $400 per person (total for 4 days/3 nights) + tip $ for guides and a small grocery contribution. We plan to meal share and will divvy up Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner & Snacks among those attending.

Please e-mail Maggie for more information and to reserve your spot! Remember…only 8 seats available!

In the case of inclement weather and conditions don’t allow us to fish, we’ll re-schedule.
