I missed that talk. You'd think they would have a blowout on their merchandise.

Gracias.

I'm in and asked Wormdrowner to unlock this because I figured we need to start making arrangements for carpooling and booking a place to stay because I figure on needing a place for 2 nights because I know I'll be in no mood to drive home 4.5 hours after fishing all day on Saturday.

There are a number of cabin/cottage type places and some of them have lighted fishing piers too. I figured it would be fun to fish the lights at night in addition to the planned trip.

Thoughts?

Some poster on TKF said he went by iFly today and it was completely empty of merchandise and dark.

I'm verifying the availability of a hall pass from the rib for the 10th. If I can get one I'll gladly be the "leader" on this one.

I'd love to but May 1st is a Thursday...

...also- Village Creek is a bit of a hike. I was looking at an alternative I could suggest and what about the Colorado River in Columbus? The old 71 bridge to Beason's Park is only about 6.3 miles. That could make for a pretty leisurely day of paddling & fishing. It's only about 45 minutes for you Katy folk and an hour-fifteen or so for me from the Upper East Side.

I'm in. No little man though.

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.

I'm going to have to gauge the rib on this one. She's due to bring forth another of my spawn precisely one month prior to this. Maybe I can convince my mother to come help out so I can get away.

I'm in but if somebody needs a kayak, let me know. I have one they can borrow and I'll be pissed of they bail because I don't want to leave it at the launch while I fish.

Yeah Puck offered the trade up a day or two too late. I ordered a ton from iFly that should last me at least a year.

So we just adjusted the terms a bit. I'm a wheeler-dealer. If I'm not making deals I'm not happy.

There's a lot of shoreline & flats you can wade effectively immediately east of the meeting spot.

And you guys quit your b*&%$ng about the wind. If you can just get (paddle) to a good wade-able location you can fish. wind or no wind. Yea if it is 30 mph that's different but you have to expect the wind to be 20+ by noon. That the TEXAS coast. Man Up! If Ron brings his sail craft he can pull you like last year.


I'll fish in 20. 30mph is damn near impossible to fly fish.
