Events and Information / 2014 Trout in the Classroom Release Day
« Last post by MattBlyth on April 14, 2014, 11:49:34 AM »
Folks

The release day for our 2014 TITC fish has been set for May 10th in Sattler, TX. We will have students and teachers from the 3 high schools present, along with the local GRTU reps to help us release our approximately 250 trout. If any TFF'ers want to join us you would be more than welcome - and we could certainly use the help! Message me for more details.

Here are some updated pictures of the fish from Mayde Creek HS

Cheers
Matt

There are a lot of changes to how this trip is coming together.

Sign up early enough to get into the A/C, or let me know if you want to camp.

This is a great fishing trip!

Outing Chat / Re: Bull Reds, Jack Carvelle, on a Fly??

I just answered your thread on the chat forum but I will tell you catching a big jack while wading in 16" of water is a hoot.  John Purcell was with me two years ago when I spotted a big jack cruising back in Mule Slough in less than 16" of water. I was eating a sandwich while sitting on the bow of my scooter so I just reach back and grabbed my rod stripped off 30 feet of line... one handed cast (wasn't going to drop my sandwich) and boom a huge jack pounced on the fly.  Ok now I dropped the sandwich. I fought the fish while wading away from the boat. I got John positioned to take underwater pictures while I was fighting the fish but John got inside the fishes line arch and the Jack turned back into John wrapping the line around his leg and BBBBUUUURRRRRNNNNN Snap! But he did get some good pictures.

But here is a few from last year. OOopps notice the two piece Xi3 10 weight.  Belonged to Dr. Mike Eberhardt! Well he told me to use it.  I thought he said to abuse it...I did!


Here is Dave Lord you want to know what to throw...look closely at the small mop hanging out of the fishes mouth.  Better practice your casting this fly will ware you (and me) out.

Don if you find a 40 lb Jack anywhere in POC Leave it alone! Besides breaking your rod it would probably sink your boat too. They are bad mamajama's. I have only caught one over twenty-five pounds that didn't break the rod I was using no matter what weight it was! Just ask John Purcell. Big reds are easy compared to a jack ...and I ain't lying.  There is something about that last run at the boat!  You better loosen your drag the closer you get the fish to the boat.  ;D
