Outing Chat / Re: Walk around the neighborhood ponds

Last night after work.


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.

General Discussion / When to use a full sinking fly line?

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?
