Outing Chat / Oktoberfisch -Fly Fishing Festival
« on: July 21, 2014, 09:53:49 AM »

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.


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 / ||| SOLD ||| 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 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

Outing Chat / Video of Austin's first fish on a fly

Video of Austin's firs fish on a fly

Austin's first fish, ever, on a fly rod. He hooked and landed a 4+ pound catfish on the neighborhood ponds on his first day in Texas. I think he is ruined for life, as fly fishing is a new addiction.


General Discussion / Texas Parklands Passport for Veterans
« on: June 23, 2014, 10:03:52 AM »

The Veterans passport allows free entry to Texas state parks for U.S. veterans with a 60 percent or more service-connected disability or loss of lower extremity.

Present one of the following to get your passport:
  • Disabled Veterans of Texas license plate receipt
  • Veteran's award letter (which establishes the degree of disability)
  • Tax exemption letter for Texas veterans.

I do have my vice and fly tying "stuff" with me.

No Russell, I did not pack my marine whistle.  :)


Damon's Seven Lakes / Poorly planned trip to Damon 7 Lakes
« on: June 01, 2014, 05:30:37 PM »
I had to miss out on the TFF SW outing, but Nilo wanted me out of the house for a while.  My local ponds were muddied up from all the rains, so Joe C. and I took a quick trip to Damon 7 Lakes.  We actually had a great time.  A total of 3 dozen small LMB, and the double handful of bluegill all on a yellow Sam's One Bug (S1B), size 6.

The water at D7Ls was clean, and clear.  Weed control this year left every lake we were in was very fishable.

Tying Chat / Video opportunity?
« on: May 25, 2014, 07:46:29 PM »
I am willing to video our members tying flies, and post them.

Allen K. and Frank B. have offered to be my first victims artists, but getting on their calendar has been impossible.

Is there anybody else willing?
