The Alamo Fly Fishers will once again host the Annual Bud Priddy "Any Fly" Contest on the Nueces River on Saturday, May 2, 2015.
The big change is that any fly or flies can now be used. No restrictions.
Registration will be 7:00am to 8:00am at Lindbergh Park in downtown Camp Wood, TX. The registration fee is $20.00 and a donated fly. Fishing is allowed from 7:00am until 5:00pm. Results are due before 5:30pm at the Casa Sifuentes Restaurant which is located on the main street in Camp Wood. Dinner is included in the entry fee.

I plan to bring every fly rod that Nilo and I own to this event (not as many as you might think :( ), along with a kickboat.

I keep telling folks about my favorite fly rods, but never get a chance to show them off.

This is that chance.

So far, as of 2015-04-02-1100, we have:
Greg A.
John P.
Randall R.
Chris S.
Bill C.
Don H.

Plus 3 more volunteers from TPWD that are not "TFF trained."

This is going to be fun!

Latest edition is on the mark.

Do you have a contributor for next month's FOTM yet?

Quote from an e-mail

"Hello All,
We are looking for Volunteers to assist with this event. we have leadership already in place. But will need additional support with AED Instructors.  We will have a very nice outing with Cypress Spring H.S. (30)+ H.S. Students at Somerville State Park. We will have to leave supper early to beat the bus there for this Fly Fishing Event. If you’re interested please contact me regarding participation.
April 17, 2015 from 6:50 am until 12:30 pm at Somerville State Park. URL : -    Lake Somerville - Nails Creek Unit State Park - Park Headquarters  Thanks

Guide got a 9.8 lb 31.5 inch trout about 15 yards from me. I got a lot trout but no wall hanger. on orange large skitter walk.


This is one thing which has always burned me up with gear-chunking guides. I'm not paying them to fish and catch a trout like that. I'm paying them for their knowledge, expertise, and to get educated.

Okay I used it again this weekend and at definitely sinks.  I was using a foam popper, and it still sank.  It wasn't as bad, but it definitely sank.  I'll have to give Orvis a call.

I would suggest anything from a 5wt to an 8wt with a floating line.  The 8wt could be real handy throwing into the wind that I expect to have in the afternoon.  The river is wider and more open than up stream and is more effected by the wind.  As for flies, good sized Streamers and Poppers for Bass.  I suppose if want to fish for Sunfish, smaller Poppers, Spiders, and Nymphs like you use at the Sunfish Spectacular.  Last year in mid-May, the fellow I was fishing with, had a yellow foam popper (about 2" long) that was killing them.
