Yep - Sign me up for Rio Raft accommodations! And lets count beds this year... as well as how many the cabin can accommodate.

And since this is typically  nymphing, I think a double drop should be allowed as a "one fly." Who agrees or disagrees?  Stirring...  ;)

Great pics Joe, and congrats to you and Denis on a great trip.

I was over there last weekend too, fishing out of Empire with some conventional fishermen casting paddle tails. Brought the long rods with me but didn't get the chance to break them out.

Tough conditions! Winds on Friday were pushing 30; but we were able to catch big reds in the river itself. Winds laid down Saturday for lots of trout and reds in the marsh.

I'd like to hear whose guide services you used, and would love to put together a fly trip on the area.

Great post!

Sorry I can't make the event this year, guys... wish I could join the group  :'(

Have a great time, be safe, catch lots of fish, and make up plenty of stories.

Way to go - looks like a great day. I was going to ask you how it went; photo says a lot.

Still wanting to make that trip with you... maybe one of these days!

Welcome! Great to have you in the club, and look forward to meeting and fishing. And please  - don't inflate Puck's ego any further... we'll never hear the end of it!

Puck -  I've been using Pro Wrap mostly without any problem, and a couple of colors from Fish Hawk. No issues with either. I have heard that Gudebrod's colors had consistency problems before they went out of business. So I just make sure I have enough thread to complete a rod without needing another spool.

Give either a try; should be fine.

Tasted the water? Wow... that's pretty hard core.

Be careful where you do that, particularly if you're fishing with Golden - check out the sign on the fence!

Hoping the weather forecast improves; I'm thinking light winds NNE and slightly salty flavored water!

Cheers... George

I'm signed up! Looks like calendar has cleared (okay, I forced a couple of things) and I'm looking forward to it. Years ago I would fish that shoreline pretty frequently in October, and it can be great. Fished a little further South, near Hodges Reef, and often found clear water and lots of fish.

The weather forecast for next Saturday, which we all now to be absolutely accurate, shows clear, 77 degrees, and NE winds 5-10 mph. Can't get any better than that!

So... let's go fishing!

I just buy tapered leaders and call it good. I think that's what most of us, and most guides, use. Fewer knots to hang up on turtle grass, and a whoooole lot easier. I use 12# with a fluoro tippet in the bays, and in the surf or jetties might go to 16#.

Pricier, but easier.

Outstanding Matt - and congrats to your growing family!  8)

First name jack, middle name...wait for it... Crevalle?

Great photo... I don't think I've ever met anyone who brought a fly rod into a delivery room!

Hello Dunkingmidget...

Yeah, what Dave said. X2!

Lots of opportunities through this outfit, and the people in it, to cast flies in either saltwater or freshwater. Come on and join the fun - there is aways something coming up on the planning horizon. PINS this month (what a blast - dry camping on the beach and fly fishing the surf), and next month is one of the major events of the year, the Redfish Rodeo to be held in Rockport.

Sorry, guys... I'm abroad that weekend and won't be able to make it. Dang! I love paddling those marshes, and an easy trip. And then there's always the Stingaree - cold beer, poboys, and live music. Sounds like a great way to finish a great day!

Mike - you're welcome to use my kayak and gear if you like, just let me know.

Looks like a great time - congrats on a few nice jacks. I've caught a few small jacks, but I'm still waiting for the big one. Maybe this next weekend...

Hey John... I'll be ready to help!  have a pretty sharp filet knife, I'll rinse the redfish guts off of it before we get started. As for a frilly apron, I may need to borrow one of yours.  ;)

Confirmed! Will be a great event, and one to remember. Looking forward to light winds, favorable tides, and hungry redfish cruising well lit flats just looking for the right fly... i.e. mine. I'd tell you what fly that will be, but, well, you know...
Make sure you are all ready to:
•   Fish - yeah that should not be a problem!
•   Eat - Counting on John's famous paella... we still on Fluidos? I'm signing up to be on your cooking team!
•   Drink - There may be a few coolers and brown bottles around. You can nurse your hangover at Speedy Stop - like always, right?
•   Laugh - Bound to be some great stories to tell, about broken tips, running a skiff into the weeds, fish that got away, etc...
Can’t wait – let’s go fishing!

See you all there,
