2 months away, and I'm already tying for this trip.

Yellow Spiders will be my fly of choice this time.

Tying the SCE yellow foam spider  a video


I plan to man the picnic table at the pool area with my fly tying gear on hand.

Ligons, and

Are on the tying list.


I did a little pre-fishing yesterday.  Since I had Lilly with me the only casting I could do was into the middle of the lakes.  Stealth is not her strong suite.

The bluegills and redears were staging just outside of the spawning beds, with the bass up in the shallows feeding.   I expect by next week for the water to have wormed up enough for the fish to really turn on.

Here are some pictures of yesterdays' catch.


Question: Do we pay at the entrance?

I've paid my dues, so me and my gal will be camping the night before. And we'll gladly bring some food/drink to share!

Pay when you get there.  I'll be the guy signing folks in, and taking the fees.

See you next Friday.


The Alamo Fly Fishers will once again host the Annual Bud Priddy "Any Fly" Contest on the Nueces River on Saturday, May 2, 2015.
The big change is that any fly or flies can now be used. No restrictions.
Registration will be 7:00am to 8:00am at Lindbergh Park in downtown Camp Wood, TX. The registration fee is $20.00 and a donated fly. Fishing is allowed from 7:00am until 5:00pm. Results are due before 5:30pm at the Casa Sifuentes Restaurant which is located on the main street in Camp Wood. Dinner is included in the entry fee.

I plan to bring every fly rod that Nilo and I own to this event (not as many as you might think :( ), along with a kickboat.

I keep telling folks about my favorite fly rods, but never get a chance to show them off.

This is that chance.


So far, as of 2015-04-02-1100, we have:
Greg A.
John P.
Randall R.
Chris S.
Bill C.
Don H.

Plus 3 more volunteers from TPWD that are not "TFF trained."

This is going to be fun!

Even after all the rain we've been having the fish were doing their thing.

Bass were in the shalllows, looking for food, and the large bluegills were staging in the deeper water just outside the spawning beds.
