GRAPEVINE The city’s July 4th Fireworks Extravaganza has been approved to come back for its 40th anniversary. At an April 5 meeting, Grapevine City Council approved a professional service purchase for the reworks display from Illumination Fireworks. The display will be funded by the convention and visitors bureau and will not exceed $55,000 according to city documents. According to Andrew Schoer, senior account manager with Illumination Fireworks, the display will be launched from three dierent sites on the east edge of Oak Grove Park about 9:30 p.m. The multiple launch sites will create a panoramic display for viewers. “It’s going to be a really cool display,” Schoer said. “We’re shooting shells up to 8 inches, which is absolutely massive.” Although the display will be visible across much of the lake, Schoer said the preferred viewing angle will be from Oak Grove Park, west of the launch sites.

Texas Legislature to provide additional tax relief fromschool districts for those groups of homeowners. Proposition 2 will ask voters whether to increase the amount of the residence homestead exemption, which is a tax break for qualifying homeowners, from ad valorem taxation for public schools from$25,000 to $40,000. Every homeowner in Texas is already oered a $25,000 homestead exemption on property taxes from public school districts—meaning the rst $25,000 of a home’s appraised property value does not count against a homeowner’s annual property taxes. If approved, that exemption for home- owners would be raised to $40,000.

BUSINESS FEATURE Grapevine Fly Fishing Longtime outdoors enthusiast shares love of y-shing with community W hen he was 12 years old, Michael Tulowitzki said he began y-shing. It was

apart from other similar businesses, Tulowitzki said, is that the shop is not corporate, which means Tulow- itzki can order whatever a customer wants without having to jump through hoops. In addition to the store itself, Tulowitzki said he loves hosting y-shing events at the shop, such as a monthly y-tying event, where people come in and learn how to tie ies. Tulowitzki said his favorite part involved. “I tell people all the time—sh don’t live in ugly places,” Tulowitzki said. “Even if you’re not catching sh, you’re outside, you’re having a fun time, and it’s beautiful.” Most importantly, Tulowitzki said the sport of y-shing has evolved and opened up more to people who may not t the stereotype of a y-sher. “[Fly-shing] is always viewed as a bunch of old, white men,” Tulowitzki said. “But there’s more women involved now than there ever about owning Grapevine Fly Fishing is getting new people has been. There’s more minorities involved than there ever has been. And that’s a good thing. It’s a great thing for the sport, but even more importantly, I think it’s a great thing for humanity.”

then that he and his childhood best friend began to dream about opening their own y-shing store one day. Throughout his life, Tulowitzki lived in New York, Colorado, Illinois, Georgia and Wyoming before even- tually moving to Grapevine, he said. He later decided it was time to open a y-shing business of his own. “I knew there was a need, especially for a shop that carries a lot of y-tying material, because that was lacking in the places here,” Tulowitzki said. Grapevine Fly Fishing ocially opened for business in February 2021, Tulowitzki said. A lot of miscon- ceptions surround what y-shing is, and Tulowitzki explained that the bait mimics small insects, such as ies, which is where the name “y-shing” comes from. He said any sh that can be caught with a regular rod and reel can be caught with a y rod and reel. The shop sells a wide variety of products crucial for y-shing, ranging from reels and rods to all sorts of y-tying materials, such as thread, beads, hooks, feathers and much more, Tulowitzki said. What sets Grapevine Fly Fishing

Grapevine Fly Fishing oers a wide variety of y-tying materials, including beads, feathers, hooks and more, as well as Thomas & Thomas, Mystic, Risen and Taylor brand rods.

FLY TYING MATERIALS: THREAD

“EVEN IF YOU’RE NOT CATCHING FISH, YOU’RE OUTSIDE, YOU’RE HAVINGA FUN TIME, AND IT’S BEAUTIFUL.” MICHAEL TULOWITZKI, OWNER

• One of the y-tying materials sold is thread, which comes in a variety of colors, sizes and types. • The thread is used to hold y-tying materials to a hook and typically matches the color of the fake y bait to blend. • Owner Michael Tulowitzki said the thread can even be used to add segmented colors to the bait to make it look more realistic.

Thread used for y tying comes in dierent types, such as wool and wire.

Owner Michael Tulowitzki opened Grapevine Fly Fishing in February 2021.

Grapevine Fly Fishing also sells reels, including Greys reels and Hardy reels.
