11th Annual

Oktoberfisch -Fly Fishing Festival

October 17 - 19, 2014
(Rain or shine!)

S. Llano River, Junction, Texas

Fly fishing in the Texas Hill Country is a pleasure that many native fly fishers yearn for during those dog days of summer.

The Fredericksburg Fly Fishers Club hosts Oktoberfisch, a fly fishing festival for those who delight in Texas fly fishing while leisurely enjoying one of the crowning jewels of Texas rivers, the  South Llano River at Junction, Texas. We invite you to join us each October for our annual Oktoberfisch Festival along this great river in Junction, Texas.

Bass Pro / Quick trip turned into a tying addventure
« on: July 20, 2014, 09:18:00 AM »
I stopped by BPS Katy Friday night for materials, and was asked when I could tie on a Saturday.  Since we were expecting rain, and I had some flies I had promised for next week, I decided I could spend a few hours at the table. 

I talked to a couple of dozen people, tied and passed out flies, and TFF cards.

This is still for sale guys.

I'll give it a few more days here, and I'll post it onto a couple of other boards.

One of our TFF members is making a trade and I figured I had better warn you guys.

I'm tying up some secret recipe RFCs just for the One Fly.

Outing Chat / Quick afternoon trip with Raymond L.
« on: July 13, 2014, 05:58:45 PM »
Raymond invited me over to fish the 3+ acre oxbow that is his back yard. 

Catching was slow, but fishing was great.

We launched in Raymond's paddleboat, and started casting to every edge we saw.

Freshwater jellyfish, which I had never heard of before were on a lot of the underwater structures.

A couple of bird species that I wasn't familiar with hunted on the shoreline.

Neighbors waved to a familiar face, Raymond, not me, a s we made our way around.

The brief summer rain soaked us, and cooled everything down.  We didn't see any close lightning, so we kept fishing.

As close as it was to the "magic hour" just before sundown, I couldn't keep the enthusiasm, and had to quit. 

A good quick afternoon trip, with great company.

Here are some pictures.

Sell Anything / Canoe for sale...$100 (OBO)
« on: July 13, 2014, 05:48:07 PM »
While Raymond and I were fishing he showed me this canoe he has for sale.   After the South Llano trip he found out how much fun kayaks were, and he is about to convert.

16 foot fiberglass canoe.  Solid as a rock.  Needs a back seat and some cleaning, but serviceable.   Take a look at the pictures.

Contact Raymond L. or PM me here if interested.

Outing Information Only / Re: Guadalupe River - November

Has a date been set?

Joe

Not yet.   I am hoping for the weekend before Thanksgiving (the 22).

We are still looking for a leader for this one.  I had a couple of "almost volunteers" but nothing set in stone yet.

Outing Information Only / Re: San Marcos River - August 9th
« on: July 03, 2014, 10:32:54 AM »
Puck,
This place was suggested, ( http://7aresort.com/index.php/lodges/ ) to me and may offer what you are thinking of?  You could even work in some fishing on the Blanco.  It's only about a half hour west of where we will be fishing on the San Marcos.  I think they have some smaller cabins that would accommodate our group.  I have not checked availability at this place.  So far, I am the only one signed-up to go on this outing.
Regards,
Ralph

If we can get a few more commitements, I say we book a room or 2.

Outing Chat / Nilo and I made a trip to Lake Livingston State Park
« on: June 30, 2014, 12:13:17 PM »
The winds were 20mph gusting to 30mph.  After 3 hours of sailing and playing we snuck into a quiet cove to fly fish, only to be run off the water by thunder.

Nilo sailing, short video
