General Discussion / Re: Best way to store flies w/ weed guards
« on: August 31, 2015, 04:40:43 AM »
If they have weed guards you don't want to deform the mono, so storing them loose in a small open style box may be the safest way to make sure the guard will remain in place.

I've tried the MFC boat box for my flies, and the only issue I have to date is still the mangling of the weed guards.

I don't tie many weed guards, as one of my favorite flies is the bendback.

GPS points sent to the folks that are signed up.

See you guys tomorrow morning at 0700.

We are meeting so late in the morning to give the Anahuac Vampires a chance to go to bed.

I plan to spray my clothes down tonight as I load the kayak trailer.

Nice fish, but what fly was it?

Boat launch parking lot: N 29.75510 W 94.69193

Friday afternoon I will send the GPS points for the flats to those that are signed up via e-mail.

I don't want the place to be overrun.

Clay has an open spot on his boat, as he told me on Saturday.

And somebody was supposed to send me a note on sign-up today, but I haven't seen it.

Meeting point is the boat ramp parking lot.

Thanks for the reminder!

Lilly and I went to BPS yesterday and renewed mine.  She doesn't really fish yet.

ACK has "Demo Days" coming up soon.

You may want to hold off until you try a few out.

I like a 14 footer for the bays, but a 12 comes in very handy for small rivers.

This is only a month away, and I've already been tying flies for it.

The date is locked.  This is the day we are going.  If the weather looks bad, I'll tell you about it, and meet you down there anyway.

In a few days, I'll put together some tips, and trick, that could be useful for this event.

Clarke Thornton Memorial?  Did something happen to Clarke?

No, but we are still celebrating him.  You'll have to ask Kevin for the whole story...
