Costa de Cocos

I am already sorting bonefish flies for our trip at the end of February to Costa de Cocos. Nothing is better than heading south to the Yucatan in the middle of winter. Great food, fishing and weather. This year we will be hosting a group of 12. Below are some photos from last year.

Tidal Potomac Fly Rodders - Beer tie on Dec 8th

This is just an early reminder that the December TPFR BEER TIE is this Monday, December 8th from 7PM-9PM at Whitlow's on Wilson. Details and directions to Whitlow's can be found here: Doors and Bar opens at 6PM, and they don't kick us out until 10PM, so plan to come early and stay a while. Rob Snowhite will be back in action at the learning table. We will have quite a few raffle items and TPFRer Bruce Mathews has donated his entire Fly Fishing library for TPFR fund raising. And since it is December, as always this will be our "Holiday Party" as well. Looking forward to see you all there this Monday!
