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.
