Ray R is fishing the Columbus area. Harry C raved about it at the FTF.

Google shows a RV park about 4 stream miles up from Smithville with river access and take out point at the bridge in town.

LCRA has a kayak/canoe trail all the way to the gulf.  One such , community of Plum to La Grange. Half day float. Check their website.

Kevin H  lives at Roseanky and guides  the river. Someone in TFF took that float a few years ago.

Along the line of salinity, how much has the daming of the Trinity at Livingston affected the  pp/m count?

I  never fished it with the buggy whip.  Lots of plugging or live bait back in the 70's. Both wading and via boat.

That is exactly what the device does that I mentioned. I have also used my fingers.  In lighter weight material I usually just stretch it.

A lead eye might be an interesting alteration.

Do you really think Puck owns a hair dryer?  ;D

He can borrow from Nilo.

They make a device to straighten mono. Basicly a piece of rubber that you drag it thru under tension.  Never tried it on anything that heave. FTU should have them for sale.
I agree with Joe.

I would think the relocation of the pivot point ( eye ) would give it a different action. Especially needed in deep pools. The clouser was designed to imitate a minnow in a school, more or less. Shallow running and swimming.

In some of the rocky rivers, the pools of water are narrow and deep. Your rod will nearly reach acorss.  You will be jigging in a sense.

Isn't that a jig hook?

Plug 'mov2flv' into google and see what you come up with.

I have a bunch of conversion programs but all are script based that run on my linux OS.
