Now I know where the name "Big Ugly" came from!  ;D

Don't be hateful just because those fish are longer than you are tall. ;)
This is turning out well.

Topics for the day:
Safety, fire ants, reptiles, sunburn, dehydration, etc.
Knot tying. 
Basic casting. 
Discussion of flies we want to use and the fish we are trying to catch this day
Differences between conventional and fly fishing.
Some fly tying.

Greg has whistles enough.

A sun shade, Chris, would be great.  I plan to bring a couple of my folding chairs.

Greg also plans to bring tent and tables.

A table to set up demos will also help.  Don . and Puck will bring one each.

The Park has grassy areas we can use.  Via Heather’s e-mail.

I have enough tippet to supply a small army, but do we have flies?  I plan to bring about 50 or so.  Other TFFers my want to do the same.

Charlotte took care of the bus fee waiver with Ron.

I’ll bring a container of fish food, to get the bluegill motivated.

LOL / Why I fish.....

Outing Chat / Walk around the neighborhood ponds...

Lilly and I took a walk around the neighborhood ponds when we had a break in the weather. 

I was using an old pattern called a Ligon  (a link to Breambugs), that was once sold by Accardo & Pecks, size 6 and black.

The rod was a 7/8 Ugly Stick fly rod, by Shakespeare, that I bought back in 1992, and for years it was the only rod I owned.  Before the rain came pouring back down, it proved that even at it's advanced age, it can still catch fish. 

8 LMB 1/4-2 pounds
2 Redear, 1/4 and 1 pound.

Bus waiver in progress.

TPWD rep, Greg, saw the students on Wednesday.  The young folks are excited about the trip.

Nails Creek staff are assisting...  A LOT!

5 TFF volunteers.  List updated this morning.

Weather looks to be cooperating.

More details when I am able to sit down and go through all the supportive e-mails.

It's always a crap-shoot. You do a great job with the sweetwater anyways.  If we get a break in the storms this weekend, let's wet a line some where. I'm getting cabin fever!
