Outing Chat / Re: Saturday get together - San Luis Pass

We were completely blown off the water.  Bear didn't even launch.

There was no way we could get out of the mouth of the boat launch safely.  Mike Q, Bob s. and I all waited at the mouth in the hopes that the wind would die down.

20+ mph winds, and off-color water.   These conditions never changed.

The day was cut at about 1600.  All the hopes of the wind dying down were in vain.

And for some reason the tide didn't turn until 1500.

That is a good vice,   I actually own one of those, and I'm pretty sure that AC owns more than one.

D7Ls has a vice from a different manufacturer for sale, but I don't know of any individuals that do.

The water is warm enough that there is no need for waders.

This can be a feast or famine day.  The cold front has moved in, and may change the way the fish react.

When crossing the water from the launch to the island, put on somethign shiny, with a bite tippet.  The smacks sometimes will hit a trolled fly.

Excellent Work!  I want to buy a fly tying setup. Any suggestion, I tyed flies back in 80ties, for bass fishing and salt water sizes... and love doing it. I gave my stuff to son and want to get back into it again as I get closer to retirement an have more time to tye..  :)

1.  A good vise.  Rotary if you like that style.
2.  Two good pairs of scissors.  Large loops for big fingers.  One with serated blades for cutting hair.
3.  A ceramic, or ceramic lined bobbin.

Any other tools are personal preference.

Feel free to ask questions at the meetings, or contact one of us tyers.

Marcus and Jessie came to help out.  We met up at 0630 by the flagpole, and started setting up just before the students walking in the door.

8 tables set up and we had over 50 kids trying to tie the GAWB, with varying degrees of success.

It was fun, fast-paced, and challenging.

I am looking forward to doing this again.

We were rained out a little after 1400.  Tied some flies with Quiggley and swapped stories with Jessie.  Talked to a few people and passed the website on to anybody interested.  More later.

We will have a booth to be set up by 0930, and our casting demonstration is early in the afternoon.  I'll put the time here when I get to my home PC.

If we could have a better caster do the demonstration, I will man the booth, and let somebody else talk for a change.

Or if you'd like to demostrate your fly tying, I can sling a line, and talk.

Currently there is only me scheduled/coluntold, for this event.

I'd appreciate soem help.

We have 3 tyers, total.

With 8 tables to man, and 20+ students per class, this will be a true challange.

Anybody else willing to join us?

I'd appreciate the help.

How was the outing and the eats? I missed my flight Friday night in Kansas City, didn't get home till 12:00 today. >:(

Bear.

Great food and company!

Fishing was slow.  (Nilo and I caught less than 30)

Weather was perfect!

I don't know who the winners were yet, but should be able to tell everyone at Tuesday's meeting.
