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.
On Jan. 11, 2011, Heritage Game Mounts exhibited at the Alamo SCI Awards Banquet. As a new member of the chapter it was wonderful to meet the people that make that organization such a success and made me feel so welcome. I enjoyed meeting all my fellow exhibitors, especially Werner van der Walt of Cheetau Safaris and Grant Evridge of Heart of Texas Trophy Whitetailswho were both so kind to assist me in setting up my first trade booth.
The whitetails the Evridge family displayed were really exceptional.
