ATHENS, Texas — Whether you are an experienced fly-fisher, a rank beginner or someone just wanting to find out more about "fooling fish with feathers," you need to be at the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center (TFFC) in Athens on March 13.

The annual Fly Fish Texas event will run from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and is designed to teach everything from tying a fly to catching a fish in one day. All Fly Fish Texas activities are free with regular paid admission to the center.
