It was an absolutely great time! 
 I met some wonderful people who love fly fishing like I do.  I am a newbie but felt at home!   I look forward to attending this Thursday. 

Thank you Puck for your advice and I look forward to talking to you about tying muddlers!

Next time will be 2013-10-17.  Adam is out fishing this week.  It must be a rough life  ;D


Generating Schedule for Toledo Bend

Weather for the area

Look like we are in good shape for Saturday.

I'll post up pictures and report later in the week, when I can sit down at the PC for more than a minute or 2.


A slight change of plans.

I will not be brewing coffee that morning. 

Look for my blue Tundra at the top of the launch.  This is the safest and easiest way to get down to the river.

I will be on the water, before sunrise, close to the "no-go" cable.

Hope to see you there.

My comments on your lessons:

I've camped on the beach before but you always learn new lessons:

1) go with the tent-cot...   
           Agree !  I have one.  And so do Mary-Kay and Skip.  Easy setup, and good night's sleep..

2) have a way to brush the sand off your feet before turning in
          Use a plastic dishpan with an inch or so of seawater (Billy S. trick)

3) cooking on the beach is overrated- a cooler full of sandwiches is more than adequate
          Canned food works too.  Just make sure to have a can opener !!

And on a side note...   That was 18  :(

The trip was great, because of the people in it. 
There were 12 people at the campsite Friday night.  Everybody was at the 25+ mile before sundown. 

The wind was blowing at 15+ mph the entire day Friday and Saturday.

A lot of bait in the water, but not much was chasing it. 

We caught a lot of ladyfish, and a ton of baby jacks with a few 4+ pounders thrown in to make things interesting.  I saw a picture of Scott B's redfish, 34 inches.  I'm looking for that picture, and more photos.

Skip and Mary-Kay had some automobile excitement Friday night.

By late Saturday our numbers had diminished to only 6 hopeful anglers.  The winds died completely, allowing the mosquitoes to find us at about 0300 Sunday. The storms came at about 0500 morning, as we did what we call a "BUGOUT."

The last 6 of us made is safely to the parking area safely, only to find out that the "good" showers don't open until 0900.

My son is still talking about it, as he drives back to Georgia

I'll add some more detail to this later today.  I am still trying to get some sand out.......

Some people, no names here, suggest using straight 20 lb hard Mason mono.

I use a tapered mono down to 12 lb, and sometimes add an 8 lb tippet to it.

Don't use furled leaders in the salt.  They act like a rubber band, making a hook set almost impossible.  My 2 cents.

Puck- I was told to confirm that I'm joining this trip (for food purposes). I assume there's one community meal, and then everyone fends for themselves for the rest of the trip. This true?

Correct. And good question.
