Harmon Creek trip, 2015-03-07

The cabins that “sleep 6” only have 1 bed, 1 loft, and one futon.  Don’t ask me how we managed to get 2 more cots spread out in the tiny cabin. Mike and J. set up a tent, with heater, close by the launch point.  Dinner the first night was bratwurst, cooked on charcoal, with sides.

17 club members made it for Saturday’s fishing

50+ white bass were caught.  I actually lost count after people started telling me where, and how many were caught. 

One Kentucky bass and one turtle were also landed.  The turtle, and the black bass, were returned unharmed to the creek.

The 0700 launch turned out to be an overly optimistic guess.  With frost on the boats and kayaks, the launch was delayed, and then delayed again.  The last boat actually launched at noon.  The white bass were all in staging pool, stacked up in deep cold, 51°F, water, and not biting very well.   A lot of the ones that came to hand came to small flies drug deep.  I didn’t get a picture of Phil’s fly, but I watched him pull in a few fish without ever changing it out.

The kayaks travelled 3.08 miles upstream of the launch point exploring, and casting to likely holes, and pockets. 6.16 miles total travel, according to the GPS.  Kayaks catching rates were just as good as the boaters.

With the clarity of the water in the creek, the hard sandy bottom, and the fishy-looking structure on the shoreline, we may have to make this trip again in the summer.  Pictures to follow….

Fish seem to like it, and you have a life-time supply!

Tying the squirrelly:


As of 2015-03-17-1000, there are no beds left open.

We still have 3 couches that sleep OK.

People that are signed up get priority!


Work in progress.  Date, and rooms, are the only things confirmed, as of 2015-02-04.

Day 2:  Launch from just downstream of the State park with our livery service, and float down to Morgan Shady Park.  Bob from Fun In The Sun (325) 446-7265 will provide our livery service.  Currently (2014-05-12) he also has some kayaks for rent.  Pizza from the new local pizza place at teh picnic tables at Morgan Shady Park.

We need to let Bob know how many kayaks, or canoes, we need.

Call him as soon as you know what you need.

I will set up the livery.


Let me know if we need to change, or we have somebody that wants the open spots.

While working with the Sam's One Bug (S1B) during the Katy Navy Fly Tying Group (KNFTG) meeting, I brought out one of my favorite tools.  This little gadget allows you to pull the silicone legs through the closed-cell foam easily, saving a ton of effort, and time.

Or just go to Joan's Fabrics and buy at "knit picker."


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!
