All are welcome! Remember to sign up in the top thread so we have a good idea who is coming.  I will get a hold of Dave K., Nigel and George S. as well as others I think would like to attend.

Now for those that want to be successful...look back at some of my previous Bayou fishing trecks and look cafefully at the flys that I used.  Nigel tied up some real doozies that worked well. 

Hunter gave me a fly that scored three fish over 3.0 lbs.!

Mike Arnold tied this one up from chartruse/yellow/marine blue craft fur, clouser style with big black beadhead eyes.

There are two other flys that were money too.
This one was probably the best hands down.

Next fish Note same fly.

Believe it or not another fish on same fly note where fly is position in fishes mouth.

Here's the next fish from the same hole.  This place was loaded.

Here is a (too) closeup of the fly.  not a good picture but you can see it good in other picts.

Hard to see but you get the picture.

Mind you these aren't small flys.  Mike Arnolds clouser minnows are #4 hooks and they work well.

The long reddish-orange fly at the very bottom was killer!  Well I hope this helps and of course ...and as always tie one of each the above and submit to the committee for field evaluation testing.  Results will be published herin and Stars shall be born!

Sounds good to me.  A good meeting point is the Citgo Filling Station on the corner of Hollister and West Little York. Let's say around 9:00 am Saturday March 17th.  If you missed us go down hollister (now called Fairbanks White Oak dr) around left hand turn to Woodland Oaks Dr.  Turn right and follow to Shady Grove Dr., turn right go to last street (Loren Dr.) and turn left to cul de sac...park and proceed down into the Bayou you'll know what to do once there!

Bring cooler full of beer, sandwiches, chips or what ever.  there is also a chance we will be hitting the Sonic for lunch too. so we can discuss that as we get nearer to our outing. 

Bass should be plentyfull.  If we have a hard rain during the preceeding week we'll need at least four days for the Bayou to clear out. Keep in touch.  We'll make this a fun time for sure and it is close to home (WOOHOO).  See you there.

BEAR the tourney came off without a hitch.  Yes it was misserable for most of the day but all in all fish were caught by everybody and the tourney had 77 fishers.  Money was raised and everybody had a great time.  Mike Drone and I had a slam by 1030 am!

On sunday I caught two sheepsheads and a red using a fly Jerry Loring tied at the fly tying fest.  The weather sunday was beautiful.

No photos were taken during this trip by Mike or I but maybe others took some.  John Purcell, Adam Muir, Jack Klinger, Eduardo Davis, and I attended.  We (Mike and I) weighed in one trout 15.5", one flounder 21" and one drum18.5 the most fish in the fly division. One sheepshead was caught in the fly division but it was caught on a boat where the team was chunking bait and chum and the flyrod was used once the fish went on the feeding frenzy! We would never allow that ...but they did!

Now that's what I call an affirmative action plan.
Adam do not touch any of the cold beer in John's Trailer

 until I get there!

If you plan on attending this outing please sign up early and indicate on this thread who you are bringing if anyone and if you are bringing a boat and can take riders. So far all that have signed up are myself, Scott Breedlove and Jim Collins.

I have heard from John Carpenter who said he is bringing a friend. Aaron Hammer and others have said they want to come but I need for them to sign up so I have a good count.  Others attending with boats Alan K., Bill W., Wendel B., Ray Russ (Ray's boat is possibly full at this time).

Would like to hear from Scott Fossum, and others who might attend.

I had just recieved the Camera when I took those pictures.  The auto focus was pinpointing another object instead of the fly.  Hopefully our tyers can get the picture.  The colors and size are most crucial and this little guy hits a home run when on the Bayou!  I have also slammed several good reds and trout with this same fly. Everybody needs a good pattern that goes both ways huh John?  Tie some up and give them a try.

George "the Obsecession" has just begun.  Wouldn't you like to be at home today with a warm cup of coffee sitting on your tying table with all your new gear spread out before you as the rain gently cascades down on your roof. The wifey cooking up some hot steaming gumbo in the kitchen all the while your tying your favorite patterns. AAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

Spoke with Ray Russ...he will not be able to attend as he has a prior work committment. Jerry Loring is looking at his schedule as he is supposed to be at the Holder fishing show here in Houston. I just looked up the dates for the Holder show and they are the 29th of feb thru the 4th of march. So he might be able to make it still I will verify today. Right now we need another big boat.  Has anybody got contact info for Martin Ware he might enjoy helping out the POC VFD.  Let me know soon. John Purcell is a go and will be taking Adam Muir.  Jack Klinger is a go and he will be taking Eduardo Davis. I'm thinking the USS Enterprise might be available for our two GENTLE GIANTS - PUCK AND QUIGS. IF QUIG CAN GET PUCK TO CARRY HIM AROUND HORSE STYLE, OF COURSE USING A PUSHPOLE AS A STABLIZER. I THINK THE TWO OF THEM WILL HAVE A DISTINCT HEIGHT ADVANTAGE. Just hope the wind isn't blowing!!!!!
Stay Tuned   

Tying Chat / February's Featured Fly
« on: February 08, 2012, 07:49:48 PM »
OK you guys here is the Monthly Featured Fly for the TFF Tuesday Nite Tyers at Bayland Park Recreation Center for the month of February.  As you can clearly see it works very well in freshwater but originally designed for Salt! Look closely and tie carefully...a winner will be announced (the decision of the judges is deemed final) judged by tying committee = the tyers themselves. (they collectively vote on their favorite)

Now the good news is that we...are you listening... all voting and judging shall be done bankside (contestants must be present to win) before we then hit a section of Houston's finest hidden backwater bayou to search for big spawnning bass...They are there and not that hard to find.  One Kicker... only the winning tyer can use his winning fly pattern.  The rest shall refrain from using the same pattern during that outing!

Here is the pattern.

Another view - poor photo's

but I'm sure you get the picture.

George Sutherland give this one a try!!!! YOU COULD WIN!

The personal adoring acclaim one receives from being a Tuesday Nite TFF Tying Champion during future TFF events will astounding.
