Anybody as ready as I am for this trip?

I plan to support this one.  I plan to make it on the Tuesday lunch and dinner.  We can put in a video, or we can talk.  Who else can we get to come out?

"We are planning our annual Cub Scout Day Camp for the Big Cypress District in Cypress/Northwest Houston and wanted to see if your group would be interested in talking to around 400 Scouts about Fly Fishing!

Our Big Cypress District Day Camp is scheduled for June 10th-13th.  We have two sessions scheduled each day (Morning and Evening) with a lunch/dinner break at 12pm and 6pm.  We generally have about 200-250 Scouts attend the Morning Session and the rest during the Evening Session.

During their lunch/dinner we invite guest speakers and entertainers to meet with the Scouts and provide education or entertainment (or both!) about a variety of subjects.  We've had guest speakers talk about mountain biking, animal conservation and even frisbee dogs.  Our "theme" for this year's camp is "Surf's Up at Cub Bay" and I thought this would be a great opportunity to talk about fishing."

I think we should go ahead and float the same section we had last year.

The fishing was great, ad the parking was secure.

I'll call our livery service and set it up.

Any objections?  Deadline for those will be this Thursday night.....

I still haven't decided if I am going to use a canoe this year or stay with the kayak.

After getting blown of the water yesterday, Mike Q. and I fished the local pond today just to feel a fish on a fly rod.

The wind had still not laid down.  The small bass and lager bluegill were game for a small fly, so the skunk was off.

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.
