General Discussion / Re: Cool rod holder idea

I like the idea, and may use a modification of that for my front-mounted PINS basket.

My question is: What tool do you use to make the cuts?

This seems to be a good idea for rod holders on a boat. I'm going to give it a try:

Does anybody have any experience with this fly line? I'm due to update 2 of my 5wt lines this year.
Airflo Ridge (R)

I wound up buyin this line for the new panfish rod.  It casts great, but it is noisy as it zings through the guides.

Outing Information Only / Re: Chocolate Bayou - Postponed until May 30
« Last post by Wormdrowner on January 26, 2015, 07:29:17 PM »
Due to the flood of fresh water into the bayou as well as the expected rains this weekend, Don is recommending and I agree that we postpone the outing until May.

We will substitute this outing in lieu of Brown & Root Flats as I originally has us going there two months in a row.

This Friday is the casting practice with the high school class.

I hope the crew from last year can join us again, and perhaps we can get a few more volunteers?

The eggs have hatched and the alevin are still feeding off their yolk sacks as their fins grow. We should have free swimming fry soon!

Outing Information Only / Re: GPS Location to Chocolate Bayou Boat Ramp...

I fished that area and launched a boat from that ramp  back in the 70s - 80s.  Dropped the wheels on the boat trailer off the  end of the launch slab several times. Underwater part washed out.   Just saying...... Check if you can.

Fabulous oyster reef in the middle of Chocolate Bay.  Check to see if it  off limits for eating.   They closed it because of up stream contamination just  before I quit fishing that area. Otherwise take your knife and crackers.  Elbow deep.

Outing Information Only / GPS Location to Chocolate Bayou Boat Ramp...
« Last post by Don Hanselman on January 25, 2015, 07:50:08 PM »
I looked on Google Earth to see good directions from Katy to Chocolate Bayou Boat Ramp off of FM 2004 over bridge going South.  Here is the GPS Location: 29*12'41.76"N  95*12'31.70"W,  Elevation is  3ft for you Denver Fly Fisherman!!  It's a 1.5 hour drive from Katy area.  Come the best way thru Houston an get on Hwy 288S and exit on Hwy 6 to Alvin TX, to second Hwy 35 (Bypass) turn right at 1st National Bank on corner go around Alvin. Go about six miles passed Kroger's. Take a left on to FM 2917 go all the way to FM-2004.. Watch you speed, state trooper work these areas--Gas Station on your right which is the last place to buy gas, food and drinks... Turn right on to FM-2004 from gas station and go apprx 3.5 miles.  Go over the bridge exit right to boat ramp which is under the bridge. The west side of boat ramp is where most yak's launching is done.  I will go and look at the water to see how much fresh is in the bay and bayou...Remember you must have a freshwater license west of 2004 Bridge... any questions call me 713-816-0884. See at meeting!!
