Last year I was there about the same time and we tore into the false albacores.

This year, my poor planning, and lack of PTO, put me on the water when I could, instead of when I wanted to be.

I will try again, but never on the same day as the PocLoco again.

My "southpaw" comment: 
As we pole the boat, we tend to put the boat into positions that we, the guy in the back of the boat, would like to be in if we were in the front.  Unless you have "Buggywhip's" casting skills (equally bad with both hands) you may have to remind your boat partner.   ;)

Good pictures!

And good luck Saturday.

I see. Thanks. See ya soon.

About You / New to fly fishing in Texas
« Last post by frdebelo on July 22, 2015, 07:01:04 PM »
Originally from South Louisiana. Been fishing most of my life.
Was a commercial fisherman for most of my life, mostly shrimp and crab.
I was probably the only fisherman in South Louisiana using a Calcutta fly rod, but it was handed down to me from my dad.
I love the presentation of the fly with the sun rising, vs the bait casting or spin tackle.
Still go the Louisiana 5 or 6 times a year, family still there, to catch reds and trout, many times on the fly if winds are calm, but cannot wade in the marshes, so have to fish from the flatboat.
Looking forward to meeting other fly fishermen in Texas and having some fun; I am an avid Fly Fisherman but could always use some pointers.

Trying to find a decent price on a Snowbee Wadron Vice if I can find one; just purchase a Teak roll top for fly tying only.
I cannot make the next meeting, but will be there in Aug.

Looking forward to meeting everyone. Hope we can fish together soon.

Saturday really was a slow day. I don't know about the 50' marlin boats scaring them off cause there was plenty out there on Friday. But it's fishing, there here today gone tomorrow. I'm glad I picked the right day this time cause I usually don't.
