This Friday is the casting practice with the high school class.

I hope the crew from last year can join us again, and perhaps we can get a few more volunteers?

My white bass launch for Stupor Brawl Sundae is out of commision.   :(

And TB PGC is operating at one generator 24/7.  Too much flow to be comfortable in a kayak.

Looking for another back-up plan.

How does Sommerville look?

Great job!

The picture must weigh 10 pounds....

Contacts? (Yes, I see the link)

Your public wants to know.

I may have to add this one to my guided trips next year.

2 of us presented in front of 50+ high school students today, 2015-01-16.

By the end of the class the young folks were excited about being able to get on the water, and were full of unanswered questions.

I am once again completely out of TFF business cards.   ;D

The casting session is now in 2 weeks.

Let the fun continue!!

Fly lines meant for cold weather will work fine in warm weather.  The reverse is not the case.

Why I've asked for suggestion on lines for Nilo's 4wt...

I've had my trout lines, that worked perfectly on Colorado, and Pennsylvania, feel gummy and limp here on our local ponds. 

And I've had lines that I use for redfish coil up into an uncontrollable mess when fishing for sheephead in the winter.


Tying Chat / How to paint stainless steel bead chain?
« on: January 12, 2015, 10:49:26 AM »
I bought a 6ft lenght of pie shelll chain. 

The material is stainless steel, and should hold up to saltwater as it is, but I wanted to modify the center spot to imitate eyes better.

I also wanted to tie up some super heavy "swamp monsters" for June.

Puck, on which Friday exactly does this event start? Also regarding when the event gets closer - do you mean closer than Toledo Bend???   :D  ;D  :o  :P

Updated, and it stays at Toledo Bend.

Good event, and I should have spent more time there in 2014.

Seems like the might do the trick:

I appreciate the effort, but these guys start at 6 wt.  :(

We still need a 4 wt.  And that is the challenge.....

Nilo won a 4wt at the Christmas party, and I've complemented it with a TFO BVK(R) reel, but am at a loss as to what line to put onto her new outfit. 

I see a ton of trout lines, designed for cold water, but no warm-water specific lines.

And no, she is not giving up on her bright pink Dogwood Canyon (R) outfit.

Responses appreciated,
