We had an adventure.

•   20% chance of rain means it rains half of the day
•   Breakfast interrupted by showers in not a way to start the day
•   Hooks in thumbs hurt
•   An 8 pound jack on a fly is crazy
•   2 foot long ladyfish fight like baby tarpon
•   Those wave really will knock you down
•   Water temp was OK, until the "boys" got wet
•   Sand is not a tasty as you might think
•   Fire starting is actually an art, and I'm not an artist
•   "SNAP" in the middle of the night is not a good sound
•   4WD is not really an option, it is a necessity
•   "KA-BOOM" is not a good sound when you have a lightning rod in your hands
•   VHF radios in every vehicle is a great idea, which we flubbed
•   Too much food, was actually a complaint......  We didn't go hungry!
•   Packing list, and packing list, and check the packing list.....
•   Tell the few anglers that are actually catching fish that we would like to add fish to the menu, and to keep a few....
•   Yes, it is possible to nap after drinking a Monster (R)
•   "New to the club" does not mean he doesn't know how to fish!
•   0230 really is a bad time to drive
•   "Whrrrrrrr" when trying to start the truck is a stomach churning sound....
•   Spanish mackerel will hit a swivel as quickly as a fly
•   I didn't know there was a city at the jetties


Report, and pictures in the works.

LOL / The power of a wife's love, a powerful story.
« on: October 15, 2014, 02:51:54 PM »
A very old man lay dying in his bed. In death's doorway, he suddenly smelled the aroma of his favorite chocolate chip cookie wafting up the stairs.

He gathered his remaining strength and lifted himself from the bed. Leaning against the wall, he slowly made his way out of the bedroom, and with even greater effort forced himself down the stairs, gripping the railing with both hands.

With labored breath, he leaned against the door frame, gazing into the kitchen.

Were it not for death's agony, he would have thought himself already in heaven.

There, spread out on newspapers on the kitchen table were literally hundreds of his favorite chocolate chip cookies.

Was it heaven? Or was it one final act of heroic love from his devoted wife, seeing to it that he left this world a happy man?

Mustering one great final effort, he threw himself toward the table. The aged and withered hand, shaking, made its way to a cookie at the edge of the table, when he was suddenly smacked with a spatula by his wife.

"Stay out of those," she said. "They're for the funeral."

Save the date for Bridgeland's 8th annual Nature Fest, being held on May 2 (Saturday) from 10am-5pm

16919 North Bridgeland Lake Parkway, Cypress, TX 77433

TFF will have a booth, and I will be asking for volunteers to help man it as the event gets closer.

PINS Webcam is looking pretty good today!

Wind and wave predictor is shaping up to be extremely fishable.

Tide for Friday put the low tide at closer to 5pm, giving us plenty of time to travel, and fish, before setting up camp.

Gearing up!

From Guru's camera:

We only had 10 TFF members show up for the event.  The weather was definitely a deciding factor.  We had light rain in the morning, and a heavy downpour in the afternoon.

The front moving in slowed things down considerably.

The fish were about as closed mouthed as they get at D7Ls.  Everybody caught something, but not the numbers, or sizes that D7Ls is know for. 

S1B, Puck's spider, squrat, and a few other tried and true flies put fish to hand.

Lilly was with me so I was landlocked.  No kick-boat or canoe for me.  :(

John S. had a nifty new rig.  I didn't get any pictures of it, but he sure did look comfortable.

I have a few pictures, and I will post what I can.

We need at least one more driver that can handle 2 riders, or 2 drivers that can handle one rider apiece.

The fishing on this event can be awesome, but we have to be on the beach to find out.......
