Damon's Seven Lakes / 2013-03-09

LMB were on the bed, but the wind was high, making casting a lazer minnow with a 5wt a true challenge.

I landed 4, but gave up after only a few hours.


TFF has been invited to participate in the expanding of young minds at one of our local high schools.

Day 1 (2013-03-01)- Introduction to fly-fishing
Day 2 (2013-04-12)- Fly casting
Day 3 (2013-04-26)- Fly Tying
Day 1 sent well, with Puck talking to 2 seperate morning classes for a total of almost 50 students.

We will need som volunteers for days 2 and 3. 

Jim H. has volunteered to help with day 2 so far, but we'll need more.  A CCI would be appreciated.

Day 3 is wide open.

Updates are in the works.

Damon's Seven Lakes / 2013-02-17, fishing with Nilo...

And talking with Jerry.

We brought Lilly out to run while we fished.

The fish were willing to bite slow, and small.

Jerry was catching a few bluegill with a twin set of nymphs.

I was using a skrat and Nilo a odd colored Hare-E.

I caught only 2 while travelling 4+ miles in the kayak.  The season is about to start.


Tying Chat / Black plastic bead chain?
« on: December 29, 2012, 02:25:48 PM »
I saw Casey Smartt tie the fly using these eyes and craft fur.

Now that I've watched how easy he made it look, I'm ready to try it, but am having a difficult time finding the plastic bead chain.

I found some, but they have a minumum order of 100 at 3ft each.  That is way too much for my simple uses.  I only need a few feet to start with.

Does anybody have a clue where to find it?

I was just invited by a friend to hit the saltwater on Monday. 

And this is the week I have family in town and just can't...   "Next time?........."

Put in before 0800 at the bait camp.  Paddled 4.1 miles total.  We saw some fish, and even spooked some flounder, but the only thing that bit a fly was a suicidal baby speck that attacked a bendback.

Nic was game for almost anything.  We fought 15-20 mph winds, got stuck in the mud, broke a rudder on a kayak, hit ourselves in the back of the head with weighted flies. It had the true making of a memorable trip, with one glaring omission.....  NO FISH.

One of you diehard salties need to take this promising young fly angler out and show him how to catch fish.  The last 6 times I've hit the salt, that skunk has hovered over me like a cloud. :(

Fishing was great.

Not much "catching" but there were enough fish to keep us going.

More pictures later.

North Toledo Bend Rendezvous - Nov 4-6th

I may have to make a trip up there for this one.

Last night on a plane back home from Dallas to Tyler, I was sitting with a friend I've known for many years, talking about church and a whole lot of political things. Being a US Congressman, Louie visits a lot of different churches in the area throughout the year, and he told me of what happened in a local church on this past Easter, that made me roll with laughter, to the point of tears.

The pastor of this Baptist church had called all of the little children to the front of the church, dressed in their cute Easter outfits and had them sit around him.

He said "Today is Easter and you all look so handsome and beautiful. Today we're going to talk about the resurrection. Does anyone know what the resurrection is?" One little boy raised his hand, and the pastor said "Please tell us what the resurrection is". The boy, proud that he knew the answer and in a clear loud, voice said.... "When you get one lasting more than four hours, you gotta call a doctor!"

It took a solid 10 minutes before the pastor could speak and there was so much laughter going on, that his sermon was probably forgotten --
but that boy's voice won't be.
