Anglers’ Night Out
Presented by Sportsman’s Finest
Abel’s on the Lake
3825 Lake Austin Boulevard

We are excited to have
Dan “Rooster” Leavens present
“Unwind with Fly Fishing in Montana and Around the World”

Rooster is on the pro staffs of Simms, Scott Flyrods, Hatch Reels, Clackacraft Drift Boats and Mossy Oak Camo. An ex-USCG rescue swimmer, he’s rebuilt diesel engines, called in bull elk, and knows how to grill a mean “cowboy coffee” steak. Those that know him are certainly aware of his belief that there is plenty of room in Montana for all of God’s creatures – right next to the mashed potatoes. All that said, he tends to specialize in fishing where “there aint nobody”. Between Montana Trout, Alaska Steelhead and hosting Saltwater trips, Rooster spends more time on the water than off.

Fellow CCA Members – your wait is nearly over!  The 2019 Austin Banquet is just around the corner.  Mark your calendar, purchase your table, and plan to rally for your organization on May 9th.  It was through your support that the Austin Chapter was able to break the $1M revenue mark again in 2018, and we plan to make things bigger and better than ever for CCA Austin’s 40th Anniversary Banquet!  There will be top-notch food, drinks for all and quality entertainment on stage. Up for grabs will be exotic trips, tons of guns and fishing gear, Yetis, boats, trucks and over $100,000 worth of raffle items. With all of that on the agenda, the evening will prove to be exciting. Go to for table and ticket sales.  Seating for this banquet is sure to sell out, so don’t delay in purchasing your spot!

A special thanks goes out to all of our generous sponsors. It’s through their commitment to CCA that the Austin Banquet shines like no other. Space constraints don’t allow us to acknowledge all of our sponsors in this newsletter, but please take a minute and check out the complete list of sponsors at These folks support the mission of CCA, and as members of CCA we should all support their businesses as often as possible.
