Is there somebody willing to lead this one?

I won't be able to.

Do we have a leader for this one yet?


Nothing heard.

Do we still want to make this trip?

52 people signed in, and had lunch.

4 from San Antonio, 2 from our High School group.  The remainder from the Texas FlyFishers, and current members of Damon 7 Lakes.

One of the groups from San Antonio camped out in a tent.  I also stayed overnight, and pre-fished the day before.

The weather forecast said that there would be rain.  The forecast was wrong about the rain, but the wind and cloud cover they got right.  Once you found a protected area, you could cast.  Another option was to make a heroic roll cast with the wind at your back.

The winner of the event was George S. with a 9+ inch bluegill.  Yes there is a photo. 

Harry C. gave some of his fishing time to educate 3 people new to the sport.  One of those was a high-schooler that had never fished before.  Every time I watch him teach, I am impressed with his patience, his ability to explain how fly casting works, and I learn something new every time.

Lunch was gumbo, rice, fried fish, chips, and hot dogs.  There was plenty of food, and even more fun.

More details shortly.


Tomorrow morning looks promising.

The bluegills are on the bed, and the overcast skies will make it comfortable temperatures.

We may get some rain late in the day.

See you there!

Tight lines.


Not recommended...lots of water less than 2' deep, the kayakers are going to cover miles per day not likely to do that in a "belly tube". Limestone river bottom not good for tubes, derneer fabric or not. If water levels are down you may end up walking or "portaging" alot.

And there is a couple of stretches that are "dead water" with no flow.  These would take hours to get through with a kick-boat or belly-boat.

That is a great fish.

Do you have a close-up of the fly?

I went one weekend too early  :(


Bringing kids to this event is encouraged.

To those of us in the younger crowd, drag your parents on down and have a good time.  Make them sit on the sideline and watch if they don't want to fish.

If you aren't a member of Texas FlyFishers yet, join us on this day.


What are the costs for kids to fish?

I might bring out my little boy and let him fish but I wouldn't really be able to fish myself. He's only 3 and a half so he's not quite ready for fly fishing.

How much does he eat?  PM sent.


Those that sign up before midnight Monday, 2014-03-31-2359, will have a nametag made, and a set of flies put aside for them.  I high suggest you use these during the John Scarborough Sunfish Spectacular.  All of those have been painstakingly tested.

Sign-ups help us with the headcount for the lunches.

Hot dogs, hamburgers, and some surprise side dishes, is what we plan for the menu.

Does the Katy Navy want to carpool?  More importantly, Puck, do you have a spare on your trailer?

I'll be on the river while you guys are in the salt.

And no, no spare yet,   :D
