Ok, I'm officially in. Got a hall pass from the rib.

If anybody is interested in selling me some recommended flies for this trip I'd sure appreciate it.

I think I have some spares.   ;D


I can't leave town till after work on Friday.  Need to talk about how I meet up with the group, when and where.


PM sent.


Have we a plan for who's riding with who this time round? Is the plan to camp at the state park Friday night as we did last year?


We don't have a ride plan yet.  From what I know, so far, is that so far we have no shortage of 4WDs.  As we get closer, we'll know more.

Who needs a ride?  Post up!

The plan this year is to meet up at Malaquite Visitor's Center Friday afternoon, and head down toward the jetties Friday night.  This should give us one more full day of fishing. 

On the scouting trip last weekend, we found that there were more fish, for a fly rod, between mile markers (mm) 40-60.  I expect that to be the same for next weekend.


We don't want to hear about all of the lady fish.  Tell show us pictures of the slob reds and huge troutskies ON THE FLY!

Not this time.   :)

But you had better believe that we will have some fly fishing photos next weekend!

We have 7 people signed up.  One person is so excited about the trip that he signed up twice.


3 of us (Matt A.,  Swen, and Puck) did a scouting trip to PINS, from Friday afteroon (1430) to sunday morning (0930). 

Pictures and details to follow.

The bottom line is that we went all the way to the jetties, with no issues, and the fishing was great, and getting better!

Last night on a plane back home from Dallas to Tyler, I was sitting with a friend I've known for many years, talking about church and a whole lot of political things. Being a US Congressman, Louie visits a lot of different churches in the area throughout the year, and he told me of what happened in a local church on this past Easter, that made me roll with laughter, to the point of tears.

The pastor of this Baptist church had called all of the little children to the front of the church, dressed in their cute Easter outfits and had them sit around him.

He said "Today is Easter and you all look so handsome and beautiful. Today we're going to talk about the resurrection. Does anyone know what the resurrection is?" One little boy raised his hand, and the pastor said "Please tell us what the resurrection is". The boy, proud that he knew the answer and in a clear loud, voice said.... "When you get one lasting more than four hours, you gotta call a doctor!"

It took a solid 10 minutes before the pastor could speak and there was so much laughter going on, that his sermon was probably forgotten --
but that boy's voice won't be.

Damon's Seven Lakes / 2012-09-01,fishing with Mike
« on: September 01, 2012, 03:57:35 PM »
Mike and I made it to D7Ls by 0900, and started exploring an area that held large bass that were biting on topwaters yesterday.  We had a couple of good hits, but no hook-ups.

We were run off the water, for a while, by some lightling in the distance.  Aftter our break, we were back on the water trying for anything that would bite.  Mike showed me how to hook bluegill using a 1wt fly rod.

When we were waiting out the next rainfall, a guest and his family showed up.  Mike, be the couteous host, offered to take him around on his golf cart, because the rain had made the roads slick.  I followed on the other cart.  As we got to the bend of Duck Lake Mike's cart ran out of power.

A quick tow back to the shop, and Mike had another guest waiting.

The fish were not biting as well as we could have hoped, but the getting outside and visiting with friends made this a memorable trip.

Tying Chat / "Alcohol burner?" I was asked.....

Why have one on your fly tying table?
1.   You don’t have to hold it lit like you do a lighter, so you won’t burn your fingers keeping a flame.
2.   It is pretty stable.
3.   There is absolutly no smell as it burns.
4.   For making bent legs and burnt mayfly wings it can be invaluble
5.   Also can be used in the production of shrimp eyes.

Some tips on how to use it:
1.   By denatured alcohol from a hardware store.  The flame will be cleaner without all the water that is in rubbing alcohol
2.   Don’t light it until you have multiple pieces of work to do.  No need to put all that heat out until you are ready
3.   Only keep it about half full.  Even with the lid on, the alcohol will evaporate out.

I keep one on my desk, and if I think of more I’ll post up.


Nilo and I are ready!

Anybody else?
