Tying the "Swamp Monster" without legs.


Fished East KY streams for brook trout.....I fished White river in Arkansas for rainbow & brown trout.

And if you really want a taste of Texas Rivers, join us on the San Marcos the 8th of next month.

What the >>>> Puck you're taking a siesta on this outing too.  Come on man.  :-\

Do you need some flies for the event?  Come get them  ;)

I've plans to devour quantities of ceviche with some friends this weekend, and Nilo's crazy time at work is right now. 

For August we have San Marcos is coming up, and is the Anuhuac Flats. 

September we have PINS and Sabine River.

I have kitchen passes for all of those.

We had a few folks that had "stuff" come up, but the trip is ready to go, and it looks like the fish, and weather, are going to cooperate for change.

Take pictures!

Another option if you are willing to use a shooting head is to make one out of Cortland's LLC13.   I have a few of these made already that I use for getting a fly down quickly in moving water (striper fishing).  The weight is completely dependent on the length.

I'm signed up for this one, but I need a boat or kayak.  I can rent if necessary.


I believe that I have a kayak you can borrow....  Let me think, who did I buy that red one from......

Gald to see that you posted up. We have some great trips this month.  Join us. 

Most of the hard core fishaholics are pretty good guys.

5 of us tried our luck at PINS for the weekend.  Tundra, Tacoma, Hummer 2.

Easy driving!

Fishing suct.

30+ mph wind killed at least one tent, and making cooking dinner impossible that Friday night. 

Water was dingy, and not the clear clean water we are used to seeing in the fall.

No bait in the first or second gut.

Shark anglers were also getting skunked.

I made 2 trips through Yarborough Pass.  My first, and my last.  I high-sided my blue truck and was throwing sand everywhere as it tried to get traction as I went into the pass.  Even the Hummer had a challange.  The guy over at Laguna Madre was catching specs on jigs, but with the rough travel, huge mosquitoes, and marsh gas, I think I'll stay on the beach from now on.

High tide seemed to bring the whiting into the first gut.  We harvested some whiting for meals later, but even ladyfish were slow to bite.

A few pictures later in the week.


Good turnout.

Take lots of pictures!

I played hooky on Friday and went over to Yates, launching from Stingaree.

The water was off-color, and high, but the bait, and th fish were still there.

We caught the first spec on a bright pink RFC.

Here is the video of Austin as we are on the way back.

Do I have any takers for an "unofficial" trip over there next month?

A lot of fresh water right now, according to Rene, but I think by August we'll be more than ready.

I'm signed up.

I spent a few hours with some fellow TFFers practicing deepwater kayak re-entry at D7Ls with my Georgia neighbor, Austin, as cameraman.

Video #1 

Good times, and then went fishing.


Pictures from Rene.

I'll add these and other to the group dropbox, and finish writing the report, hopefully before deepwater reentry training at D7Ls on Sunday.


Sounds like the Pointman didn't warn the others of the log. Hope nobody got hurt bad.  You really need to be in good physical shape on a trip down a limestone river. That rock will tear up your skin without much of a problem.  Puck, just add the photos to your report here. Many of us don't want to open a Dropbox account to be able to see the photos. That is what we are trying to encourage more folks to use the Forum for. Pizza, burgers and brats WOW now that's living! Who brought the "Cardboardeaux". I hear the trip out there was beautiful and the river was very generous.  Sounds like you had a great time.

I only set up dropbox for the participants of the trip, and will grab some of the best photos to add to the report.  The rest I plan to add captions, and send to Dave for uploading into a photos folder.  Hopefully I can get all of this done by the weekend.

The "Cardboardeaux"  [George's phrase]  was actually pretty good once you got past the packaging. The honey whisky was another pallet pleaser.  Steve's wine went well with the food.  No, this was not a "drinking trip with some fishing thrown in..."  This is a great group of anglers that I'd take on any fishing trip, or just hang out next to a campfire.

Morgan Shady Park may not be in operation next year, and we are already looking at other locations that can accommodate a group of 10-20 of us.


As we get closer to the planned day we will know more about the river.

Currently the SRA is generating 24/7 until further notice in an effort to bring the lake level down.
