About Us. / Re: August Meeting
« on: August 28, 2013, 12:04:45 PM »
That was good!

I saw friends at this meeting that I haven't seen for months, and in at least one case, a year or more.

Rod building is always a popular table.

Some of the flies I saw tied were simply amazing.  We set up for 8 tiers originally, and we wound up with 13.

Steve discussion on the finer points of casting was well received.

Aaron's table seemed to stay crowded.

PACK and Reel Recovery also has a lot of visitors.

Pictures later.

I'll be looking forward to "next time."

I have both tripods, and both cameras (still and video) with me.

We just need operators.

Flies are meant to be fished.  I will bring some to give away.

I plan to bring my "culls" from my fly boxes.

Some are flies from friends, and others are ones that I have tied too many of.

This may be a good time for others to do the same.

I brought about 80 flies and only used 2.

Two croaker caught on a coyote, and 2 more on a redfish crack.

Protected from the wind.  The water was slightly off-color, but fish were caught.

Excitement at the launch area. 

By the time the main group showed up Mike F. was on the water looking for the early birds.  You know, the ones that said they would be on the water at 0600.

The casting game on the last gathering was the in-air mend.

No competition.

I have no idea what Chris and Adam have planned for the next gathering.

Here are some links, with the comparison.

Land route = 122 miles, 2hrs 2 minutes


Ferry = 99.2 miles, 2hr, 19 minutes

More miles, but less traffic, and wait time.

Launch point

This takes you to Google (R) maps.  Use this to find directions.

For first timers to the area, I'd recommend staying in Jasper, Tx, and make the trip early in the morning to the launch site.

There are places to camp, but these take a little more gear, and planning.

Which way is faster?


If leaving from Katy, and you get directly onto the ferry, with no wait, the ferry is 5 minutes faster.

Factor in the ferry wait time and we may see you Sunday.
