Houston-FlyFish Festival 2/5/2011

HGM visited the 19th annual Dr. Ed Rizzolo FlyFishing Festival in Houston on Sat. Feb 5, 2011.  Each year Texas FlyFishers hosts this event featuring fly tiers and rod builders from TX, LA, AR, OK, KS and NM.

Our day was capped off by a delicious dinner at one of our favorite spots, the Rainbow Lodge with a perfect Old Fashioned cocktail prepared in the Tied Fly Bar.  My dinner of lobster and grapefruit salad followed by spot on prepared venison, buffalo and quail was enjoyed in a room surrounded by a variety of game mounts on split log walls by a roaring fireplace.

Kevin Hutchison of Hill Country FlyFishers surprised me with one of his caps in pink!
