Outing Information Only / Re: July Outing - Port O'Connor "One Fly"
« on: May 28, 2013, 05:23:38 PM »
Sign me up for lodging.

I got there at halftime (lunch).  Things seemed to be slow.  Great BBQ and discussions.  One discussion was around what happens when you put a rod on a car and drive off.  I ended that conversation saying "I haven't done that yet."   You can probably see where this is going.

Spent the afternoon being teased by bass examining whatever fly I threw out there and then moving away.  Finally tricked one bluegill into hitting the fly.

Heard a lot of Puck's "Fish on!"  Asked him what the secret was and tried it out.  Third cast I got a hit and broke off.  As a final salute the fish jumped clear out of the water taking my fly with him.

Headed on home and unpacked then a good dinner with my oldest son who was home for the weekend.

This morning the kids and I were headed out for church and noticed that someone left a nice fly rod in front of my house in the  cul-de-sac.  I then remembered putting it on top of my son's car while I was unloading my car.  Later that night, he drove off not noticing it was there.  When he came home (whatever time that was) he pulled past the driveway and backed in, probably running it over.

The rod looked a little scuffed up but none the worse for wear.  Only took a few casts for it to fall apart.

Now I get to try out the TFO warranty.

There are probably lots of "morals to this story".  For instance, if you haven't left a rod on top of your car and driven off, don't talk about it or it might happen to you that same day!!!  Another one is if you see a fly rod in the road in front of your house and wonder what idiot put it there, it was probably you.  I am sure there are more.

Still had fun, caught a fish and enjoyed talking to some good friends. Always good to get out.

Oh yeah, another good moral to the story is TFO's $25 no fault warranty is a winner.

I went to this last year and the movies were great.  Probably going again this year to see the new set of films.

Get your ticket and go!

Thanks again to Alan, Bill and Wendell for putting the group up for the night and the guys with the boats to haul the rest of us around. Thanks to George for hauling me around in his skiff. Big thanks to Mike for doing all the organizing and cat herding to make this thing happen.

It was a tough day fishing but a great day to get out and wet a line. 

For the third year in a row the winner was in Alan K's boat. Wonder what that means.

My wife has been looking forward to somebody else winning the trophy ever since it showed up at our house last year. She doesn't appreciate "reel" art.  I'll post a photo of it later.

Looking forward to some fishing and catching.  Here is a photo of trout Matt mentioned earlier in this post.  Despite all the crap in the net, I did not catch him in a tree or scoop him off the bottom.   He successfully avoided all the nymphs I floated past him.  Got tired of it and brought out the olive woolyB.  First cast after that.

 I agree with bringing snacks and going out.

See yall there.

I had a shrimp Poboy.  Not sure who got fish.

I only had about 10 to 15 minutes in the water when the thunder started and we decidied it was time to get out.  Tide was really starting to drop out in the marsh area I was fishing too.  Grrrr.

I agree with George, congrats on the job!

More importantly, I think you should act quickly on that boat thing. I would hate for you to miss out on the late summer early fall fishing in your new boat.

Sounds like you got a sweet deal on a reel.  Time to go put it to use.

Had a great time.  Catch all the details in Golden's report.  Here are pictures of a "world class" ladyfish, dinner and the view of the bay on our way out Saturday morning.  Enjoy.

Outing Chat / Belize Anyone
« on: July 30, 2012, 06:04:37 PM »
A couple of us are headed to Belize in October.  The trip is through Orvis to El Pescador, 4 nights lodging and 3 days fishing. Leaving here October 29th.

Deal is pay single occupancy rates, and a friend goes for free.  Cost $3,070 split between the two of you and excludes airfare to Belize City and some other stuff.  Go look for yourself on the Orvis website.   

Here is a link to the page on  Not sure if the link will work but you're smart and can figure it out.

If you want to go, contact Jason or Jeremy at the number listed on the website.  PM me for more details.

Scott B

PS:  Not hawking Orvis over any other vendor.  They sent me the email and I followed up on it.
