Tales For 2012 / Find the Perch
« on: October 19, 2013, 07:59:29 AM »
I wanted to do some fly fishing in Port Lavaca, TX.. found a park off main drag with a pond.. Did catch any bass figure they were all caught out since it was a park... I started with a hopper that I used in Denver for trout... It worked, the perch loved it...See if you can find the perch in photo... all of them were this sizes.. should be monsters next year if they are not all caught.

Way back when, I went to a friends Grandmas' home in York Town,TX to fly fish on York Creek that ran thru her property... We caught all the above including gars on fly rod...was a blast.  To top this off was Grandmas' cooking--never had cornmeal fried chicken with smashed potatoes and gravy. So good..!! Nothing like old country cooking an friendship... Nice Pictures and story.

Welcome... I just finish working a job in Denver over a two years of learning how to fly fish the streams and rivers around Denver area. Really got a workout.. Decker, Blue River, South Platte in Littleton.  I have a 22.5 Shallow Sport with a casting deck in front for both fly fishing and bait casting .  I'm learning to improve my fly casting and catch more... I have been a bass pro for fisherman for fourteen years and grew up on the Texas coast know alot of saltwater fishing places... I call anything over 5 feet of water is deep..My favorit bait casting lures is the She Dog (top water) and Mirrow Lure( jerk bait) and some plastics.  Be happy to show you some bait casting too.  good to know all types of fishing.

 :)  I'm done working in Denver and will miss the great fly fishing there.. I didn't get to fish it all, but did had fun trying.. Ready to get serious with the club and learn more about casting and tying flies.  People, I have a 22ft Shallow Sport and know one to go fishing with... I'm not allowed to go fishing a lone anymore according to my wife...My retired fishing buddy went fishing by himself during the week... Slipped on the boat ramp while unloading his boat. Fell broke some ribs and knocked himself out. This happen at Horse Shoe Bend in Liver Pool,,no one was around to help him at the time..So when he awoke, he put the boat back on trailer and drove himself to E.R. for treatment. So from then on, he is grounded from going fishing alone again.  When my wife found out about this... Need, I say any more....I will furnished the boat to get some lessons on fly fishing on the water. I do wade and drift or run trolling motor in shallows. I plan to retire in June 2014.. Call if interested...713-816-0884. Don Hanselman.
