I have been asking him since last February for an opportunity to video him making that crab.

So far, we havne't been able to get him in front of the camera.

I can bring the camera and tripod next weekend and hope he'll sit still for a bit....

Why does your carb look like a crab?   :o

Throw it in front of a Prison Permit, and let's see how it works!

Mesh tubing....

My version of the Cypert's minnow that I plan to use on this trip.


The cabin is full, but there are still campsites open.


In the cabin.....

Updating as I get the responses.



Lilly and I have rented a cabin that sleeps 6, for Friday and Saturday night at Harmon Creek RV Park & Marina. 

If you are interested in sharing costs (per bed), get in touch with me quickly.  I expect the beds to go quick.

I have a few type IVs that I throw routinely.

A floating fly, minnow, shrimp, bug, etc. works great with sinking lines.  Let the line go down to depth, and as you work the fly, it dives with the pull of the line.

I like to work bendbacks out of the kayak with my sinking lines. 

In the surf, at least an intermediate is required to keep the line from wrapping you up with the wave action.

Casting is completely different from a floating line.  You are not going to pull a backcast while the line is burried.  Get the line to the surface with a roll cast of spiral cast, and only then can you pull the back cast.

These sinking lines are also a lot thinner than floaters, allowing you to cut through the wind.

Talk to Don H.  He is a recent convert.

My 2 cents


Is a kayak required for this trip or is anyone bringing a boat that I could trade beer for a ride?

Q wants to run his boat.

Send him a note.


Trinity River, upstream of Lake Livingston, Sand bass,March 7th, 2015

The place we're going to is called Harmon Creek Marina. 
Check out the website: ( )
Harmon Creek Marina had their annual white bass tournament last weekend and I found out from the owners that it was "too early" - that's probably good news for our 3/7 weekend.

Easy paddle (boat required, no bank fishing) - no current, sheltered from the wind.

This is in the boonies - no place to go eat nearby so bring all food. Maybe we'll have a fish fry Sat night?

For a fish fry we'll need someone to bring a deep fryer, oil, etc.

Lots of room for camping, nice creek/river with, hopefully, enough fish for everybody. By the way, the owner told me this is also the beginning of the crappie run. Also, rumor has it that there are some stripers in there.

Who knows, this might turn into a regularly scheduled "official" TFF outing if this impromptu test works out.
 From HOUSTON - Take I-45 North from Houston, to EXIT 113, toward Riverside. Take Hwy. 19, 10.7 Miles, until you come upon Chevron gas Station on right side Then you will TURN LEFT at next crossover onto Wood Farm Road, and FOLLOW THE YELLOW MARINA SIGNS straight to our gates.

Where did that gent in the jon boat launch?

The exact same place we did.

And did you get a look at the launch?


How could I? I wasn't there.

I thought I posted a photo of the launch.

I will tonight,

I have been asked to tie at that event on Saturday. 

And that was before we moved the Chocolate Bayou trip.  :(

Cliff's Bugger Beast ::: Fly Box

Purchased for $50 but willing to sell for $30.

Those lines you see in the photo are my only modification.  They make it easier to find the slot.


Sold to a fellow TFF member, whose dues are paid up...
