Last night Mike Q and Bill L. talked about this trip. 

It is looking to be a good one.  I won't be able to make this one as I'll be out of town that weekend visiting friends at my old stomping grounds.

I like the idea of a place that is close to crash after doing some hard kayaking in that area.  And being clean before going into Stingeree for dinner is a bonus.

So far I only see 2 people signed up.  Even the leader isn't officially signed up yet.

Put the word out, and lets get on the water.

Location must be changed.  Our host will be out of country during our schedule trip.

In an panic measure to get us on the water I am going to suggest that we change the location to Newman’s Bottoms, on Yegua Creek (GPS N 30.31845 W 96.71263)

Last night at the meeting I had a couple of suggestions, still at Lake Livingston, that we could pursue.   If one of you guys have an idea, and are willing to lead, speak up and lets go fishing.

Where did that gent in the jon boat launch?

The exact same place we did.

And did you get a look at the launch?


Sharkathon 2015 has coordinated with Padre Island National Seashore staff and the dates for Sharkathon 2015 have been set.
Primary Dates: October 2nd - 4th 2015
Backup Dates: October 16th - 18th 2015

Have you noticed that neither of those dates are those for our TFF PINS trip.

This topic has been moved to [SW Outing Chat].

Don, will this be shallow water's that we will be wading in? just checking i have never been up that way on the Trinity! :D

in many places we should be able to wade.  And the water is still in the 50s so a pair of waders will be a good idea.

Details coming soon.

This trip is planned for next weekend!


As of 2015-03-04-1500

There are only 3 beds left open.

People that are signed up get priority!

Order placed, finally, with J. Stockard Fly Fishing

"Customer service" never did answer, or call, or anything.

Now we wait.


They had bad weather and were short staffed. 

No Military discount. 
No IFFF discount. 
No Fly Fishing club discount.

More to follow.


They have no discounts, of any kind, but they do keep a variety of stuff on stock.  The order I placed came in exactly one day earlier than predicted, with everything I had ordered in one package.

I'll keep them on the preferred vendors list, but not at the top.

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.

Looks like a great place to try out one day.

Keep the reports and the pictures coming!

The fishing was great.  The catching could have been better.

3 of us were on the river, in the rain, at sunrise, flinging flies from kayaks.

Some pictures....

I've replaced one of my 5wt lines, and this is the old one.  It has a few nicks, but still casts, and floats.  It would be perfect for a beginner or a training rod.

I'll bring it with me to the next TFF meeting 2015-02-24.


5 anglers signed up so far.

March 7th is still the target date.

You'll need to bring camping gear, and warm clothes for the night. 

We may be able to have a small campfire.  I'll check with the land owner.  I plan to bring a small stove.  Hotdogs and hamburgers for dinner, and instant oatmeal for breakfast are my plans.  We'll coordinate better about the food when the date gets closer. 

We also will need to watch the weather very close.

Lets see the bottom

Fish won't see it, and neither will you..     8)

Kidding aside, I'll bring some to the meeting next week.
