Outing Information Only / Re: San Marcos River - August 9th

Puck,
This place was suggested, ( http://7aresort.com/index.php/lodges/ ) to me and may offer what you are thinking of?  You could even work in some fishing on the Blanco.  It's only about a half hour west of where we will be fishing on the San Marcos.  I think they have some smaller cabins that would accommodate our group.  I have not checked availability at this place.  So far, I am the only one signed-up to go on this outing.
Regards,
Ralph

Friday night dinner is at the end of Olive street. It is the house on the right with a brown roof. I do not know the actual street number, but it is basically Washington @ Olive st. Go towards the bay (East) from that intersection on Olive st. The driveway is kinda that yellowish/orangeish dirt/gravel, and it is the house on the right. There is a very overgrown lot in front of the house. On the left side of the driveway there is a little Mowdy scooter on a trailer.

Honestly, the best way to see where it is if that is not a good enough description is to go to Google earth and find that intersection. When you zoom in on it, you can see that there are only two choices at the end of Olive st. Left is a White roof house, and to the right is a brown roof house and that is the one. In the google earth pic that i get, you can actually see the little scooter by the driveway in the pic.

That's a really nice shot of you demonstrating the "Orvis" position.

Les,

May I please get you to post your address/directions to your place so that we all don't starve Friday?

Thanks!

Gosh Les - your offer to tie flies for people is pretty tempting, but... hey, wait a minute.... what if you're really trying to tie a really bogus fly for everyone, an thus sabotage their fishing and ensuring your victory as you fish one of your real secret flies???

I'm afraid I'd end up fishing with something like this:


Thanks for offering, but I think I'll tie my own!

I will be bringing flytying stuff down as well, so any last minute superduperdoublesecret flies could possibly be tied Friday night if necessary. I might even be able to be bribed (with the appropriate amount of livation beforehand of course) to tie a few if needed. ;)

Of course Willies law of "at 2 o'clock I went to bed with a 10 and at 10 o'clock woke up with a 2" will apply!

sidenote: I claim no responsibility as to the durability or effectiveness of any fly tied after 9 p.m.

About You / Re: Another New Guy
« Last post by GDSutherland on June 30, 2014, 06:36:21 PM »
Hello Mark - Always great to have "another new guy." We were all new guys and beginners once, some more recent than others. Practicing in the yard armed with videos is a good way to start. Might also consider getting some casting lessons, you'll find that to be an instant accelerator. They can critique your stroke and offer corrections. There are several in the club, and we often have someone providing a informal clinic prior to our meetings.

A really great way to start is to go fishing! Come on out and join us - and welcome to a new addiction!

Regards,
George
