The part of this story that nobody has mentioned yet is one of us loosing his balance in the front of the raft and going for a fully immersed swim. 

The fly rod never left his hand, and it never touched the water.  Yes there are 2 witnesses to that fact.

Lilly and I took a stroll around the ponds, me with a fly rod in my hands.

I have my opinion, but I'd like to here what others have to say.

No longer do we have a cabin. 



We now have 2 cabins and one campsite!

8 more A/C places are still open as of today, 2014-04-12.

Take a look at the map, and information provided by TPWD.

And I've marked where we took out and took out. 

I don't show the campsites, or where we caught fish.  That would be up to Brent and his team at ReelFly Fishing Adventures.;)

You are welcome!   ;D

That smallmouth gives you just another reason to go back.

The volunteers, Dave S. Frank B, Marcos E, and I showed up to educate the students how to tie a wooly worm.

Coffee, scones, muffins were enjoyed while we waited for the sign-in desk to be manned.  While waiting we got a visit from the police. I guess a bunch of guys drinking coffee at the flag pole is not a common event.  When we reminded him that he was one of our moving fly casting targets the last time we were there, he remembered us with a laugh and went back to his regular duties.

OK, we forgot 3 bobbins, and 100 hook.  The video camera had the wrong cables.  And then the fun started.  100 sandwich baggies loaded with the ingredients for the fly.  About 30 teenagers in 3 different classes.  3 roamers, and a loud bald guy in the front, with a running commentary.

During the first class we timed it perfectly, and only had 2 minutes to spare as we were able to get two sets of students at each vice.

The second class we had about 5 minutes left, and Marcos attempted to explain the math behind profiting from fly tying.

One the last class of the day, we were a well-oiled team.  Roving through and getting the tyers help as they asked for it, we had a ton of time left, almost 12 whole minutes. 

Some of the neon colors that we used would get the attention of just about anything, fish included.

This was a great way to introduce younger folks to  our sport.  Without this some of them would never even consider fly-fishing.

Then Charlotte G.  our teacher, showed us the homework assignment, budgeting a fishing trip.  I thought this was a great idea, and could only get them to put more thought into what kind of fun there is to be had.

Next time?
