Outing Information Only / Re: Village Creek Big Thicket - May 1st
« on: April 08, 2014, 04:40:36 AM »
I'd love to but May 1st is a Thursday...

...also- Village Creek is a bit of a hike. I was looking at an alternative I could suggest and what about the Colorado River in Columbus? The old 71 bridge to Beason's Park is only about 6.3 miles. That could make for a pretty leisurely day of paddling & fishing. It's only about 45 minutes for you Katy folk and an hour-fifteen or so for me from the Upper East Side.

Are you willing to lead this one?  If so, I will modify the trip description this weekend.

And I agree with Wormdrowner, May 10th is a great choice for dates.

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

We will be speaking to 3 different classes, starting with the first period.


Day 3 (2014-04-11, "April 11th, 2014") - Fly Tying
          This is the most challenging due to the time limits (40 minutes). 

We will need some more volunteers.

Updates are in the works.

Coffee at the flag pole 0630
Sign in at 0700
We have about 30 students for first, second, and fourth periods, for a total of about 90.
Tying the wooly bugger on size 8 TAG (no sharp edges) hooks.  We have about 40 minutes per class.
One guy on the camera, tying, the others on the floor, assisting.

I'm envious.  Only one of my bass looked that good.

You are right.  The wind put them down about 0900+.

Fishing was great, catching was slow.

Change of plans:

We have reservations at Morgan Shady Park in Junction, Tx. for Friday and Saturday nights.

We have one two cabins, that will sleep 7 each ( I plan to take the first 2 slot)  and a campsite for tents, close by.

The first 5 12 guys that are willing to pay up for the A/C get the first slots, with a standby list for any others interested. 

Bring your own bedroll, and towels.

More details to follow

Nothing heard.

Do we still want to make this trip?

52 people signed in, and had lunch.

4 from San Antonio, 2 from our High School group.  The remainder from the Texas FlyFishers, and current members of Damon 7 Lakes.

One of the groups from San Antonio camped out in a tent.  I also stayed overnight, and pre-fished the day before.

The weather forecast said that there would be rain.  The forecast was wrong about the rain, but the wind and cloud cover they got right.  Once you found a protected area, you could cast.  Another option was to make a heroic roll cast with the wind at your back.

The winner of the event was George S. with a 9+ inch bluegill.  Yes there is a photo. 

Harry C. gave some of his fishing time to educate 3 people new to the sport.  One of those was a high-schooler that had never fished before.  Every time I watch him teach, I am impressed with his patience, his ability to explain how fly casting works, and I learn something new every time.

Lunch was gumbo, rice, fried fish, chips, and hot dogs.  There was plenty of food, and even more fun.

More details shortly.

Tomorrow morning looks promising.

The bluegills are on the bed, and the overcast skies will make it comfortable temperatures.

We may get some rain late in the day.

See you there!

Tight lines.

Not recommended...lots of water less than 2' deep, the kayakers are going to cover miles per day not likely to do that in a "belly tube". Limestone river bottom not good for tubes, derneer fabric or not. If water levels are down you may end up walking or "portaging" alot.

And there is a couple of stretches that are "dead water" with no flow.  These would take hours to get through with a kick-boat or belly-boat.
