San Antonio, Texas Project

Projects are important for Foster kids because it teaches skills that they can use throughout their life. These kids will always have fly fishing to turn to and we hope they will cherish these lessons and memories forever.

ROCKY SANCHEZ, LEAD MENTOR

San Antonio, Texas

Rocky is from Rockdale, TX and grew up with two older brothers. As a kid, his dad taught him and his brothers about the outdoors, often taking them on fishing and hunting trips. Rocky moved to the South Texas Coast Bend where he attended Del Mar College and Texas A&M University-Kingsville (TAMUK) receiving degrees in engineering. During this time in college, Rocky spent a lot of time fishing the Texas Coast. After graduating from TAMUK, Rocky moved to San Antonio and began fishing in the Hill Country as well as participating in Big Brothers Big Sisters of South Texas. In Rocky’s free time, he enjoys fishing on local rivers and the coast as well as racing mountain bikes and gravel events.

LANDON ROWLETT, MENTOR

San Antonio, Texas

Landon grew up in a small town in West Texas spending a lot of his youth in the outdoors. He was introduced to fly fishing while working in Colorado as a Whitewater and Backpacking guide during college. Since then he has worked in fly shops and as a guide in the Hill Country of Texas. Landon enjoys spending his spare time outside hunting and fishing throughout Texas with his wife McKenna and his dog Gimli. He hopes that the outdoors will shape the kids in foster care just like it positively shaped his life as a kid.
