About the Righteous Fly
Don Alcala is a licensed fishing guide offering specialized fishing trips in the Corpus Christi area. Don is a conservation-minded fisherman with one goal in mind: to catch fish. By means of fly, lure or bait, Don will do whatever it takes to get you on fish.
Whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been doing this for years, Don can take you out on a trip designed just for you, catching a variety of species depending on season. If you’re looking to get into fly fishing or need to brush up on your fly casting, Don offers fly casting lessons to get you up to speed.
Don started fishing when he was 5 years old at a creek near his grandfather’s house, with a cane pole and hot dogs to catch small catfish and the occasional sunfish. At 7, he started making yearly trips to the gulf coast with his grandpa, and they would fish from piers and jetties using live shrimp and spinning tackle.
Fly-fishing had always interested Don, but he didn’t pursue the sport until 2007, when he bought his first fly rod. It was a $20 starter rod, but Don taught himself to cast. He fished that rod for 4 months, consistently casting only 40 feet. Don wasn’t sure if it was him or the rod. Then a friend let him try a TFO Signature series. The first time with that rod, Don was consistently making 60 foot casts. By the end of 2008, he was primarily fly fishing.
