John and I did some pre-fishing with Brent on Saturday (2015-07-18), as I am on lock-down next Saturday.

The water was off color, the tides were low, and the boat traffic was extremely heavy. (POCO LOCO?) Combine that with a Texas coastal breeze, and you have a tough day of fishing.

There were a lot of large reds pulled from the depths early in the morning.  We saw them landed.  We didn't do any landing.

John had a shot at a nice red that turned out to be a track star.  And we saw some fish...  way over there!!!!

Hope you guys catch a lot more than we did.

I frequent on-line, hobby stores, BPS, FTU, and even my fellow tyers.

Send me a pm with your e-mail, and I'll send you the websites that I use frequently.

Can you say "Discount?"

Good idea!

That was space that didn't seem to have a purpose beforehand.

Now I have to start looking for that kind of space in our home.


???? freshwater yawn... why not go to Sabine that's fishing. Have fun hope they don't release from the spillway.  Oops you could end up in Orange real quick. HAHAHAHA

I keep checking, (Sabine River Authority, Louisiana)and today it looks great until about noon.  Let's hope that the day of the event they don't generate at all:

Generator 1: 7/12 Running 10 hrs. - 12pm to 10pm
Generator 2: 7/12 Running 10 hrs. - 12pm to 10pm
Spillway Gates: Closed

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......

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.
