Outing Chat / Fishing the legendary Mardi Gras Minnow, part 2

Just took one of the latest batch and was fishing the local ponds.  6 LMB and one catfish.  The largest LMB went 8 lbs on the Boga grip.  I had an elderly oriental neighbor trail me, and took the occasional photo for me.  Total of the day was 7 LMB, 1 catfish.  Just a few pictures here:


A modern take on the water wars, thanks to the lack of foresight of our legislators.

The solution seems simple, but I wonder if the death of a river takes place before it is implemented?


Our second day is coming up!  2014-03-14 (next Friday, the 14th of March, 2014)

Day 2 (2014-03-14) - Fly casting
          In the hallway is what we did last year.

I will pick up 5 rods from George on Monday.  We have about 30 kids in each of these 3 classes.  A couple of inexpensive fly rods added to the bunch will help us split the group up better.  I have an Ugly Stick, and an Echo we can use. 

Let me know if you are still in the group.

Details, via e-mail, on when, and where will go out next Monday to our illustrious volunteers.

Me!  Me!  Me! 


Pictures first, then the story.

Yes, that is the video from last year.


Down to 20% chance of rain, wind speed dropped, and now going to get into the 60's.  This is the forecast as of 2014-02-05-0730


First event 31st of January was a success!

I will have details, and hopefully pictures up shortly.

Until then, here is a copy of the agenda we used.  Micheal and I tagged teamed the presentation.


Agenda for High School
Introduction (5 minutes)
(10 minutes) Difference between how spinning/casting gear works compare to fly fishing
  i.  Toss a rubber worm to the back of the room, letting the lure pull the line
  ii.  Feather toss, then only using the fly line, do not use a rod, toss the feather to the back of the room.
  iii.      Mention that anybody is capable of fly casting.  Mention Joan Wulf and Lefty Kreh,
  iv.      along with the cub scouts (6-8 year olds) that we have catching fish with fly rods.
List the types and sizes of fish that can be caught with a fly
i. Personal experience in the list is helpful
(5 minutes) Gear, and the industry behind them
(5 minutes) Boats, and the industry behind them
Drift boats
Poling skiffs
(5 minutes) Flies, and the industry behind them
i.      Hooks
ii.      Feathers
iii.      Man- made (EP is a perfect example of filling a niche)
(2 minutes) Guides
(3 minutes) Lodges
(5 minutes) Closing with mentioning
Fly Tying festival
Fishing show
TFF meeting
Our next time in front of them, casting

Do we know of anybody travelling that way that can give us an update?

Or does somebody know a guide?


Has anybody else see the forcast for Saturday?

Good weather to be a duck. 

Waders, fleece, and wading jacket are in order for the current forecast.

Nothing against that stretch of water.

I personally know nothing about it.

My last adventure on that river was near the dam, and almost run over by airboats, so I've been reluctant to go back.

Further downstream...  I've never been, so I don't know how the traffic could be.

Suggestions anybody?
