Outing Information Only / Re: Louisiana Marshes - November
« on: September 22, 2014, 03:26:25 AM »
From Skip:

The Louisiana Marsh Trip will be on Lake Calcasieu.  The selection of this lake was made by the Contraband Fly Casters (CFC) out of Lake Charles, Louisiana.  The CFC will be our hosts on this outing, the first of what I hope will be many more with our fellow flyfishers from Texas and other neighboring states.  Establishing a connection with other fly clubs could open up many new and exciting fly fishing opportunities for us that we can build upon.  Group exchange can't help but mean better things for flyfishers.

Details are being worked on but the event will be kicked off on Friday evening.  We have been invited to listen to Bill Heugel do his presentation on fish senses, Friday November 21st.  They are planning on having food and it will be at the same venue they hold their Expos at.  (Exact location will be forth coming)  This will give us an ideal opportunity to meet our hosts from the CFC and discuss the following days fishing..

From what I've been able to gather from Fred Hannie, a member of the CFC and friend of the Texas FlyFishers (TFF), they are excited about this opportunity and looking forward to it.  Naturally the BIG question is numbers.  Being a small club their ability to take us out upon Lake Calcasieu will depend a lot on us providing the majority of the water-crafts.  That shouldn't present much of a problem as Lake Charles is about as far as Port O'Connor and TFF trailers there routinely.  The CFC said, we will probably split up into two groups with the power boaters going to one put in and the kayakers putting in elsewhere.  Obviously, all of this will be based on water conditions the day of the outing.

Lodging opportunities for Friday and/or Saturday nights as well as license requirements, costs, etc. are being looked into at this time.  Hopefully I'll have more answers to your questions by the September meeting.  Likewise, perhaps you can give me an idea as to how many of you are interested in going.  Much of the planning will be based on how big of a group joins Mary Kay and I.

We have had a couple of drops. Please note the updates to the spreadsheet regarding rooms & boats. If you can't open the sheet, let me know and I'll get your info to you.  No word from any of the other clubs. I sent about 8-9 other Texas clubs the information as well as Lake Charles, LA.  I did send some flyers to Dave H. and he will let the guys with Rockport know about the event.

I spoke with Skip the morning. He has been inundated with trying to get his condo fixed up. He will try and have more details posted shortly, but what we have so far:

The Contraband Fly Fishers of Lake Charles will be having a meeting & dinner that Friday night with a speaker. They have invited us to join them.  Saturday, we will be fishing Lake Calcasieu. Given the fact that we are still a ways out from the date, they have not determined where on the lake yet. It will depend on conditions. They can provide some spaces on boats, but given they are a small club, that space is limited. If we can have a few guys trailer boats over, that would be helpful. For those who wish to/end up in a kayak, one of the host club's guy will lead a group of yakkers if so desired.

As I said, this is a brief synopsis of where things are. Skip will try and get access to a computer this week and will post more details.

I have to order the Saturday BBQ a week out which means next Saturday. If you have not paid your entry fee, I'm afraid you'll be left off the list for dinner and also won't receive a ticket for the door prizes. Please pay or at the very least, contact me before Saturday September 27 so I can call this in.



It will be December 6th.  Tracy & I will be staying at Rio Guadalupe Resort. 

Does anyone else have an opinion?

This week's Orvis podcast had an interesting discussion with Aaron Adams of the Bonefish Tarpon Trust. He and Tom Rosenbauer discuss fishing for tailing reds.  Good podcast!

If you haven't signed up yet and/or paid, you need to do so now. I am assigning boat spaces based on when you sign up and whether or not you're paid up.  Unless your name is on the signup sheet, you are not signed up!

Hello Darth!

Most of the ponds are fine for fly fishing. Don Puckett's (Puck) subdivision has some good places to fish for bass, bream (sunfish) and catfish. We also do quite a bit of saltwater fly fishing in the club as well. Trout fishing is a bit more difficult as the nearest trout waters are the Guadalupe River and it is a put and take fishery. We will be having an outing there in late Nov - early Dec if you are interested.  Feel free to send me a message if you'd like more information on what's going on. Welcome aboard!

Right now we have tentatively set the date for November 15th. My fear is that the river will not have been stocked by then. The 22nd is the Louisiana outing and I don't want to schedule this the same weekend.

It seems we have three options:

a) Keep it on the 15th and hope to Hades that they stock fish.
b) Do it the Thanksgiving weekend. By Friday night you will so sick of your guests that you will do anything to get out of the house.
c) Make it the November outing in December and have it December 6th.

I'd like to start preliminary work on this, so please give me your thoughts on dates if you are interested in going.

Why don't you post pictures of that four feet of snow that you'll be up to your *** in come December & January!!!  ;)

I can loan out a handheld VHF if someone needs to borrow one. You'll have to stop by the house to pick it up.
