NEWEST INFORMATION AS OF 07/06/15
I went down to the bayou this past Saturday. The water is starting to clear up nicely and if no heavy rain between now and next Saturday we should be good. First place I tried I caught a 2 lb bass on second cast!  The grass along the banks has grown up about 16" high and requires you to throw a very high back cast so that you don't get caught up in the overgrowth.  With the grass growing the other problem is you MUST be aware there are snakes down there.  Make plenty of noise while moving into position and you'll be OK.  First place I went I saw one! So expect to see a few.  Not much different than watching out for sting rays while wade fishing.

We'll meet in the cul de sac at the end of Loren Lane.  From West Little York take Holister north go around left hand bend and take first right (Woodland Oaks Drive) go 100' and take first right (Shady Arbor Ln) and follow around to end of street.  Park in cul de sac (away from trash pile dropped there this past week) and we'll meet there at 7:30 to 8:00 am.  I'll drive you guys around to different locations so that you can each get a good spot or two.  For those wanting to fish the ponds bring a kayak and enjoy! Do Not Park down at the ponds please even if you see others doing so.

Call me if you have any problems getting there, my number is on the sign up sheet!

That was in the front pond? The back pond is getting covered in moss.  We need to sneak a couple grass carp into each pond. Boom - problem over!

Welcome aboard Jeff!  Look closely at the One Fly outing Puck sent you.  One heck of a great time and way to meet the saltier types in the club. We have at least six skiff owners and about that same number of bay boat types that regularly participate in our club saltwater events. We cook, drink, BS, and fish with the best of them!

LET'S GO FISH'N BROTHAS

Looks like you hit a good weather pattern guys.  10% chance of precipitation, sunny 91 degrees.
Make sure you take plenty of water, sunscreen, energy bars, and your wade boots. A small yak anchor can go a long way to making the day better too.  Have lots of fun, take pictures, and Be safe!
I'm watching the my Grahamchild Friday night. Fishing the Hollister ponds before the storms Saturday afternoon. Got to stay sharp for the One Fly!

The bayou is starting to grow again. Nobody has fished it in awhile due to high flow. If we do not get any more heavy rains for the next two weeks we should be able to fish a few spots without much of a problem. If the grass is too high I will suggest bringing your kayaks and fish the ponds. Also we have to be vigilant for "Mr. No Shoulders" too.

Now that's what I'm talking about. You might get the "Minister" hooked-up with Stacey for those lessons.  She has a way to teach flycasting that puts the student at ease. Marcos scares cockroaches!

Thank George I just shared the evening with my two daughters, and son-in-law + #1 granddaughter. The kids pumped Dad full of pot roast and all the trimmings...WOW absolutely deeeelicious. Watched the U.S. Open golf tournament and the Astros on the tube. Had an excellent day hope you guys did too.

POC ONE FLY INFO

MFQ asked if I would put the word out to all the salties about a "reel" fun event upcoming on our 2015 calendar.  First off if you are on the list to receive this email it is because you have either attended one of our events in the past or you have said you'd like to.  Please forward this email to your other TFF fishing buddies if they are not listed above and have them sign up early so we get a good head count. We will also be inviting other Texas fly fishing clubs to attend and see how we roll.  So here you go.
 
On July 24 - 26, 2015 were are having the Port O'Connor One Fly event.  Besides being one of our longest running premier saltwater events, we have arranged the use of the Rabe House for comfortable lodging for those who need a place to stay.  The House has plenty of room for our attendees, plenty of streetside parking (get there early), a four story observation deck, outdoor grill and a fish cleaning table.  If you have attended and stayed there before you probably had a blast like the rest of us. It is important that you sign up early so that you secure your accommodations.  The Upstairs portion of the house has One bedroom with a queen sized bed that has been reserved.  Also up stairs are a comfortable futon and sofa sleeper plus 2 baths and a kitchen.  Downstairs is a more open concept that has 3 twin beds and three double futons plus bath and kitchen. Kitchens have stoves, refrigerators and microwaves.  Bring your own toiletries please! If needed and we hope we do, we will have other accommodations available for all. 
 
If that isn't enough we are talking world class food too! For Friday night's Captain's Dinner we'll have George Sutherland and his cooking crew (John P. and yours truly) cooking up a Cajan style shrimp boil with plenty of spicy corn, potatoes, and ice cold beer! Also included will be grilled Redfish over garlic bread smothered with smoked Gouda cheese.  A cardiologist will be on call if needed! Now on Saturday night John Purcell is making his famous POC Paella with all of the freshest seafood available.  For those that had tasted this treat before, you will see them run for the chow line as quickly as they can get there and really that's all that needs to be said. DEEEEELICIOUS!  Also we'll be sampling some fine Texas distilled Bourbon, Vodka, Tequila, and Rum and some big HONK'N Cigars too!  Are you kidding me I'd drive to POC just for the food and drink!
 
So don't be a fishing social outcast - join the fun!   Last Year's One Fly set high standards which will be hard to beat but we'll definitely try for sure!
 
Of the people who have signed up as or notified me of this date are:  Right now we have more boat space than fishers.  That will change quickly.  Get signed up! If you are having trouble getting signed up call or email me and I will take care of the sign up. We need to know your needs for sleeping arrangements immediately

Yeah Dan and I have this constant conversation going on. Bashing No. Remember, I was in that same boat while bringing up two girls by myself, believe me I know the pain.  Brother do I know. Even today I still work constantly and miss a lot of fun stuff, but that's just a given running your own business. I get it! Plus the funny thing is Dan gets out on the water way more than I do. HAHAHA so he can take the ribbing.  8)

I do try to schedule the key outings the club holds way in advance so that I can attend or at least offer my help.  As soon as my girls became teenagers my outdoor life became so much less active.  Their agenda usually took the top of the hill if you know what I mean. So instead of traveling, fishing, or golf, I did the national competitive drill/dance team circuit for five years. Swimming teams for six years, Girls Basketball and Soccer team coach for three years.  Every weekend and many weekday nights totally involved with my kids and don't forget all of their friends too. I paid my dues but once you get your parole you're FREE FREE FREE! Oh crap...I almost forgot I just finished my grand daughter's first season of Jr. T ball. I sponsored the team (Yankees) and only missed one game. Here we go again! ::)

I know your have young boys so hopefully they'll love the outdoors as much as you and will afford you more time on the water, nothing better than the family setting.  :D

Hopefully you use one of those July weekends (July 24-26) to fish with us in the POC One Fly! Make your reservations NOW.  Legos...Austin really! Sweet. I like the green ones. ;D

Yeah it is that time of year should go down on next moon phase. And with all of the fresh inflow...well that's not helping either. You gotta fish where dry land used to be to find a fish or two. It sounds like you at least found some fish. Good on You!

The way I see it Dan it is hard for us to get you to come fish with us now even if it is here in town due to your current litter's demands.  :( My advice is to relax and buy a good tarp for the new boat.  :o I figure it will sit way more than float. Once the kids are old enough to crew the boat and go with you then all of this changes.  By that time the wifey will be screaming at the top of her lungs "DAN...TAKE THOSE TEENAGE HEATHENS OUT OF THIS HOUSE AND GO FISHING!"  Mark my words Brother! ;D

Sounds like the Pointman didn't warn the others of the log. Hope nobody got hurt bad.  You really need to be in good physical shape on a trip down a limestone river. That rock will tear up your skin without much of a problem.  Puck, just add the photos to your report here. Many of us don't want to open a Dropbox account to be able to see the photos. That is what we are trying to encourage more folks to use the Forum for. Pizza, burgers and brats WOW now that's living! Who brought the "Cardboardeaux". I hear the trip out there was beautiful and the river was very generous.  Sounds like you had a great time.
