Thanks for the great report Ralph.  Did you take any photos? Did you find any deep holes worth investigating? Bigger fish usually hang out there. How was the river flow? did you have to paddle much? How much was the cost of the livery service, and canoe? Club members will want to know.

LOOKS LIKE DAN IS HANDLING SOME OF THAT. SCOTT ARE YOU OVER AT PHIL'S. I MIGHT STAY THERE TOO IF THERE IS STILL ROOM. HOWEVER I HAVE ANOTHER PLACE TO STAY OUT ON THE ISLAND TOO. SCOTT ARE YOU FISHING FROM YOUR BOAT OR YAK?  I NEED TO SEE IF A SKIFF (GEORGE S.) IS GOING TO BE AVAILABLE. I WILL LET YOU KNOW SOON. I'D REALLY LIKE TO BE FISHING THE BIG WATER OUT BY THE JETTIES IF POSSIBLE. I'M SURE THE TARPON WILL BE THERE BY THEN.

SCOTT ARE YOU STAYING OUT ON THE ISLAND?  IF SO WE'LL MAKE SURE THERE ARE A FEW OTHERS OUT THERE WITH YOU.  WE NEED TO MAKE SURE THERE IS A BOAT OUT ON THE ISLAND IF THERE ARE PEOPLE STAYING OUT THERE. JUST IN CASE OF EMERGENCIES. 

JOHN P. SAYS HE WANTS TO HIT THE DEEP BLUE WATER WITH YOU BEFORE SUN UP. KINGS AND LINGS BABY! CAN'T YOU HEAR THE DINNER BELL RINGING????

I WILL BE GOING TO POC AND ARANSAS PASS THIS NEXT WEEKEND. I WILL MAKE SURE THE WAHOO IS IN GOOD SHAPE IF WE NEED HER. ALSO GOING DOWN TO PICK UP THE MUY GUAPO! IT'S TIME FOR HER FACE LIFT.

THANKS DAVE IT DOESN'T LOOK GOOD OUT WEST DOES IT. ANOTHER FEW WEEKS OF THIS AND THERE WONT BE ANY REASON TO GO OUT TO THE LLANO UNLESS YOUR LOOKING FOR ARROWHEADS. IT IS LOWER NOW THAN IT WAS THIS TIME LAST YEAR. WHERE ARE THOSE DARN ROJO RENEGADES (since we can't call them redskins) AND THEIR RAINDANCEs...SURE COULD USE SOME RAIN OUT THERE 'BOUT NOW.

Check out 2 cool report on April 28, Yahoo says water above SH 87 is stained and non-productive almost like it was dead?  Water levels already low up that way too. What is going on. Has anybody checked the river flow rates yet.

Here is some recent news as of today.  Does not sound good.
http://www.llanonews.com/news/43053/

...and keep this on your 'puter it tells all

http://waterdata.usgs.gov/usa/nwis/uv?site_no=08151500

What is the plan if flows are worse than they are now?  What was the flow last year does anybody know?
With another month of drought I'd think we need a plan "B"! Might be the reason few are signing up.

What about the Colorado below Austin...looked like it's very productive, good accommodations near by probably could get a shuttle service pretty easy.  Ray R. has been hammering the fish down there too.  I don't know if I am even able to go yet due to my present work schedule. Plus my work partner (SIL) and family are all headed to Hawaii that week! Just an idea if things fall apart on the Llano.

SOUNDS GOOD TO ME! WHITE OAK BAYOU OUGHT TO BE A GOOD PLACE TO START.

General Discussion / TFF 2014 Auction Huge Success
« on: May 04, 2014, 05:15:23 PM »
Huge success...thanks to all that came. The trips to Andros and Belize went to some extremely happy folks. We raised what appears to be an all time high net for our club thanks to the many of you who attended. Brand new fly rods with reels and lines went to some mighty happy folks for huge savings. Thanks to Cary Marcos, the Sage 4 pc. 3 and 4 wts in socks and tubes went for over $250.00 each to some very lucky fly fishers. Guided trips all over the state of Texas and the gulf coast were gathered up quickly for some huge savings...big thanks to all of the guides and outfitters who supported the Texas Fly Fishers. Also to the vendors like Fishing Tackle Unlimited, Orvis, and Bass Pro Shops these people really care about the fly fisher and the promotion of our sport. Please folks in return we shall support them too. As always if I have left your name off please someone followup this thread and help me and get credit to these wonderful people who help us so greatly.

BIG Thanks to all of the TFF workers who helped put this event together. It took a lot of work by caring people all in the great spirit of bringing affordable fly fishing to more and more people. Most of all a huge special thanks to the event coordinators. Mr. and Ms. Skip and Mary Kaye Donavon, who without their diligence during the past year this event would not have happened. These two wonderful people have the energy and work ethic that many folks fifty years their junior have no idea even exists. Thank you Skip and Mary Kaye you guys did it again! Thank you for Corey Rich and his 25th year of calling our auction.  Are you kidding ME! I love this man! what a wonderful job he does for this club.  A special shout out to Sandy Lemke, John Scarcelli, and Dave Steffek your work with Dr. Ed's stuff was nothing short of phenomenal! Thank you soooo much. Thank you to Ms. Quigley (...now that's just fun to say right there) Traci now that you got your feet wet I figure we'll be seeing you a lot in the future. ...and as always there is Dave Kelly who has probably been to every one of these events and is the most unselfish giver of his time...thanks Dave. ...and of course I must say thanks to our Maker who has given us everything that is good in this world and we are so blessed that FLY FISHING is right up there with that of being Americans too. May God continue to bless America, Fly Fishers all over the world and especially our TEXAS FLY FISHERS with his grace.

PUCK WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH YOU! ON A RIVER ...REALLY? POOR CHOICE BROTHER, REAL POOR CHOICE!

Also as it has been said ...YOU MUST SIGN IN ON THE SIGN IN SHEET. By doing so you are committed to the outing, boats and lodging.  You don't sign in you will not be counted. 

WE NEED AT LEAST ONE BIG BOAT TO FERRY GUYS AND GEAR OUT TO THE JETTIES ON FRIDAY AFTERNOON. STARTING AROUND 5:00pm  MOST OF THE DAY FISHING WILL BE DONE FROM BOATS EITHER OUT AT JETTIES OR BEYOND.  SMALLER BOATS USUALLY STICK TO THE FLATS. AS IN THE PAST WE HAVE MADE THIS TRIP A WEEKEND TRIP, MEANING FRIDAY NIGHT THRU SUNDAY DAY. IF THAT IS YOUR PLAN PLEASE LET US KNOW SO THAT BOATS AND ACCOMMODATIONS REMAIN WORKABLE. IF YOU PLAN ON STAYING/FISHING OUT ON THE JETTIES PLEASE UNDERSTAND THIS  - YOU MUST SIGN THE WAIVER!!

IT IS ADVISABLE YOU BRING SUN SCREEN, BUG REPELLANT, RAIN GEAR, DRY TENT, AND ANYTHING YOU WILL NEED TO GO IT OUT THERE. I SUGGEST YOU TEAM UP WITH SOME ONE SO YOU CAN MINIMIZE THE GEAR. THERE ARE NO FIRES ALLOWED OUT ON THE ISLAND SO THAT MEANS NO COOKING. MICROWAVE AND GENERATOR IS ALLOWED AND COULD ALSO BE USE TO POWER SOME NIGHT LIGHTING...NOT A BAD IDEA.

AS FOR FLY RODS 10-12 WTS FOR JACKS, BULLS AND TARPON. 7-9 WTS FOR TROUT, REDS, FLOUNDER, SKIPPIES, SPAN.MACKS, ETC.

BOATS SO FAR WE HAVE COMMITTED: PLEASE NOTE YOUR BOAT ASSIGNMENT!

Need several guys to do the shopping while I drink! YEEEHAAAA.

We Need Some More Fishers...Com'on man! You kidding Me.

All I know is that we had plenty of good water just horrible skys. There were fish everywhere but you didn't see them until they were right under your boat. Sheepshead didn't want to play anymore, funny how that happens in April. I saw a close to thirty inch red just sitting there in a small pothole. He never moved until I had put five casts right in front of his face. He must not have gotten any sleep Friday night like the rest of us GEORGE!  Your wife must be deaf or her room must be way down the hall! Just Say'n...I see a C-Pap machine in your near future BROTHER. We saw one big trout but she had different ideas and they were in the other direction than what we were going!

If you plan on walk'n the rocks I'd plan on a rattlesnake bite kit an orthopedic surgeon and plenty of single malt to ease the pain of the ten thousand mosquito bites. :o

Why don't one of you contact Ray Russ! He fishes this stretch weekly.  He just doesn't talk about it too much 'cause he doesn't "want a bunch of hot spotters catchin his fish!" But if you approach him in just the right manner say'n "you're the man Ray"  "Nobody knows it like you Ray." "We need you Ray!" You can take one of your guns and kill something while your there Ray." "We'll all go blind folded Ray." "We just want to see you catch big fish Ray!" He just might go for it and from what I have heard...well I'm not supposed to talk!

...or you can just sit at home wish'n you were RAY!

73
That is RIGHT we're fishing this weekend...well now that is a wonderful thought. I'm betting I'd better wake up the troops since they've have had plenty of time to fall asleep.  ;D

74
Not at the moment.  I am trying to get another boat to join us but I can't get a conformation yet.  Also lodging is full and the hotel down the street is full too. Bring a tent and camp with the critters!

If I thought my whole back wouldn't come apart there are days when I'd like to try that contraption. I hung from a teeter once and it took me about three weeks to recover. :P
