12th Annual

Fly Fishing Festival

October 16 - 18, 2015
(Rain or shine!)

S. Llano River,  Morgan Shady Park, Junction, Texas

Fly fishing in the Texas Hill Country is a pleasure that many native fly fishers yearn for during those dog days of summer.

The Fredericksburg Fly Fishers Club hosts Oktoberfisch, a fly fishing festival for those who delight in Texas fly fishing while leisurely enjoying one of the crowning jewels of Texas rivers, the  South Llano River at Junction, Texas. We invite you to join us each October for our annual Oktoberfisch Festival along this great river in Junction, Texas.


COURSE/RACE DESCRIPTION:  Kayakers will be racing head to head. They will be racing backwards throughout the course. Judges will be holding them in position until the signal to begin.  Each kayaker will have to navigate two buoys on their starboard, (right), side then return to the finish line at the beach. (There will be a diagram of the course at the event). First to cross the finish line advances.  Kayakers who miss a buoy or fail to follow the designated course will be DQ'd.
