The mission of the Texas Fly Fishing & Brew Festival is to introduce as many people as possible to the quiet sport of fly fishing. We fulfill this mission by offering instruction in fly casting, fly tying, resources conservation, and much more—all geared to festivalgoers of all ages and ability levels and from different walks of life. We hope to inculcate in this next generation of fly anglers the ethos of fly fishing: to be diligent and thoughtful stewards and conservators both of our precious natural resources and of the quiet sport itself.

If you’ve ever wanted to try your hand at fly fishing or fly tying, the Texas Fly & Brew is your chance! Wander the festival grounds, listen to and meet angling experts, sip the Texas brews, take a specialty course, or stroll outside and cast a fly rod in a relaxed setting.

If you’re a brewery or a business involved in the fly fishing industry, please reach out to us for vendor information. We strive to be as inclusive as possible; nevertheless, our event is highly specialized. Home improvement companies, for example, simply are not a fit for our unique fly angling event.

We’ve recently relocated to the City of Mesquite because of their fine hospitality, easy access from major roadways and their spacious Mesquite Convention Center conveniently located beside the Hampton Inn.

To request vendor information or answers to questions not addressed by our FAQs, please email us at Fishutopia@comcast.net or call 703-402-8338.

See you in Mesquite in February!
