What a great time.  There I said it again. Had a good group of guys...Matt lead the group of Mike Q., George S., Scott B., Mike H., Denis A., and myself.  We arrived to this cabin...

A closer look at the back of cabin and the rear deck.

Bear is starting to stock the fridge.

A look out in the back yard!

Nother look the other way.

This is where my brother Scott G. was married!  Go figure right!

Mike Q. needs a low overhead sign. He clears the light fixtures by only 1/2" or so.

This guy couldn't wait nor could George, Scott, or I for that matter.


Around 6:00PM Friday we met our newest club outing member, Mike Hart.  It didn't take long for us to see that he fits right in with the group so it was time to go and find some grub and that we did.  Chicken Fried everything was on the menu tonight at Lucky's Cafe.  Hot wings, pints of shiners, cold fresh salads dripping with Ranch so thick you could spread it with a rake and mash potatoes and gravy!  Did I miss sumpthin'?  After dinner at Lucky's there in Sattler we returned to the cabin to rig equipment and tell stories. Quigley my friends, is full of them. So much so in fact there is a new I Phone App out called I-QUIG it has all of Mike's one-liners... hold on it takes a while to download!  Meeting time for the group was 8:00 am Saturday AM and so we turned in for some shut eye.  The snoring was minimized by the fresh hillcountry air I guess 'cause it was pretty quite.

We woke up to this.

Pretty rough conditions wouldn't you say?

TEXAS Hill country Post Cards!

The water had a slight stain to it from the recent rain earlier this week.

Denis worked this hole all day long and was rewarded with several landed and several escapes too.

Scott B. working his "bobber" and dropper rig.

Quigley was a hoss and worked his steelhead drifting techniques at this beautiful location.

My only strike of the trip came right where I am pointing. Three head shakes and a "see ya" was I all could muster.

I drifted this spot in front of these two bIg cypress trees for an hour, there had to be some fish here.


Well anyways as you could see Texas is still one beautiful place and we are graced by the good Lord above to be here sharing time with others in his presence. I am hoping others will send me or Dave kelly more photos AND THEIR STORIES.

As Bear said in his thread Brent and Amy were very hospitable at their new shop REELFLY. The folks down at Action Angler were eager to share their knowledge and very friendly too.  Breakfast at "Sweeties" Sunday consisted of Texas sized Biscuits smothered with Sausage and cream gravy. Whew wee brother! YOU MISSED IT! 

CONGRATULATIONS TO DENIS AUGER YOU BESTED ALL ON THE RIVER THIS DAY!

Great Mikey, I will have my cataraft too.  Should make for neat fun in the evenings with some drys!

Mike H. as I said earlier on this thread Denis Auger was originally on the "Injured Unable to Perform" list but has up graded to "Ready Willing and Able".  He will be staying in the cabin with us and if you don't mind will accompany you and I on the river. I hope this is OK by you.  We are still the soon to be winning team, Denis will team with another if someone shows up!

Scott. I am going to call your wife and tell her all about the new shoes ...and oh yeah the purse that you are going to buy her just for letting you go two weeks in a row! It will still be worth it!

So I get this call Friday night from Scott B.  Goes something like this..."hey where are you guys?" "I'm here at Rio are you close by?" ME...er Scott ...ah aren't you a little early? I mean by a week or so!
SCOTT B... What? Aren't we fishing this week?
ME..."No" Next week!
SCOTT B...?????
ME... "At least you can pre-fish and let us know what is the hot fly! Meet us at the monthly meeting this coming Tuesday.
SCOTT B. er I thought the meeting is held the last Tuesday of the month!
ME... Maybe I don't have a calander with me but you maybe right. In that case we won't see you until after the outing.  You can call me and give me the info. I promise I'll let everybody know what the hot fly is.  George already has the Cornfly in pocket! 8)

George Sutherland calls me and says he has a little time Saturday to fish and would I like to hit a Brownline! Heck yeah...
Satiurday started off with some drizzle and fog early.  I hit a local haunt before meeting up with George and found the fish very active.  Five fish in less than forty-five minutes.  That's very good in my opinion so they are on the feed!  George is right on time (pay attention all you slackers) at the meeting spot.  He has all of the essentials...five wt., purdy flys, cold Shiner Bachs, and some new electrician's tape for my reel seat!  Now that's being prepared!

We chose a spot on the bayou that has been left alone for a couple of weeks.  Water clarity is good, flow is low, and fishing pressure non-existant! However there was a large flock of Comarants (sp?) watching us! I walked along side of George telling him how the fish relate to the deep rock piles and holes.  The object is to present your fly let it drop into the strike zone and with a "jigging" motion get the bass too strike. So I set him loose along this good stretch and he starts fishing.  I go the opposite direction and do the same. 

My first bass of the day...that's George over there.

Here my next one.

After catching a few I go over to George and say a few encouraging words like come on George all you have to do is fish the rocks jig the fly like this and whaala I pull out this nice bass right where George was standing and fishiing....George Just Got SCHOOLED!!!

Second jump.

Here is what she looked like coming out of the water.

We decided to move downstream to a new location.

This fish was the first to jump on my line.

George has gone his way and me mine this is what I ran into...

What ...sweet a catfish struck that fly! I did say the fish were on the feed!

...and so the day went big fish....

...and little ones...


The last two pictures show a good example of the fly I was using today.  But the operative word here is WAS!  I lost it later on to the rocks and could not retrieve.  If anyone could tie me up a few I sure would appreciate it.  Beadhead with Yellow, chartruse, fire orange would be good colors too. About three inches long. Mike if you read this post... I would like you to tie me up some of those chartruse and blue clousers you did for me last...I'l be at the meeting this week.

Thanks George for coming all this way to share your Saturday with me on the WOB I had a great time. It is like we (TFF'ers) have this place all to our selves anytime we want! SWEEEEET! Good COLD beer between each fishing hole was a big plus too! ;D

Scott are you bringing your kayak or drifting down from Rio Raft or wading lease to lease?  Also if anybody has an extra pair of river boots size 11 (fit over my waders) I would appreaciate their use.  Coastal boots don't fair well on slippery angular rock. BumBusters.

I do plan drifting some of the deeper holes from the cataraft.

Ergh...scroundging...harsh word my friend. Evidently you are the only man in our club who doesn't know that I am a 7th Degree (for those who don't know...especially our squating friends from the UK the 7th degree is one step past PHD) BASS, FFF, LSAA, CCC, NASCAR, NASA, and La Raza Certified Fly and Lure Tester! It takes years of hard work and untold hours toiling in search of the correct protocol to obtain this level of professionalism...so in a word (or two) absolutely not!  Besides I do this for your safety and welfare. Just ask any of our more proficient tiers. None of them have sustained harm while in my company! >:( :o :P 8)

Wormdrowner I thought you said to day you were in on the lodging on the river?  Nigel George has found a great deal down on the river we are planning to stay Friday and Saturday nites. the rate is approximately 60.00 each night or less (tax included).  The place sleeps five and will aford us safe overnite parking and fishing right out our front door. If that is OK with you  - your in.

So far lodging on the River.

Mike G         In
George S.     In
Scott B.       Pending
Jared F.       Pending
Mike Q.        Pending

We could squeeze in another on an inflatable if needed which would make everybody's price go DOWN!

Friday let's plan on trying to assemble around 7:00PM remember it is three hour drive to River not counting Houston Traffic.
Satrurday nite Dinner and local bar scene...Jared bring your Cowboy hat, ZZ Top Beard, and some cheap sunglasses... that otta work! We'll try and keep the chicks off you!
