Gents

I will be paying for the rio cabin in a couple of days. Please can everyone confirm that you still want a bunk?

Also - need to know if anyone else wants a guide for the day?

Cheers
Matt

Cabin number 1A is secured at Rio - check in Friday and out Sunday. Total cost is $550. Sleeps 8 and so everyone who has signed up for a bed will need to bring $68.75 to cover both nights. I take cash or check.

I also had a chat with Brent - he has spent the last 4 days catching on dry flies all day with clients and hasnt had to use nymphs. Bring some stimulators if you have some as they seem to be working well. If we dont get any rain then make sure you have flurocarbon too. Cant hurt to have it anyway. Having said that - Scott B caught a great fish on a wooly bugger over the holiday break.

I am aiming to be there by lunch on Friday and to do a little prefishing.

No kayak for me, I'll be fishing with Matt "Carpman" Blyth and Brent Hodges. On Sunday I'm taking my daughter, who's in school in San Marcos, out for her first flyfishing adventure. Brent Hodges will be providing a few pointers and a roll cast, she's excited about it.

By the way, I've selected my "one fly" for the event. Since our primary quarry will be stocked trout, I'm focusing on a dropper rig that should appeal to their appetite for hatchery food.

My top fly, as an attractor, will be the legendary "Bread Crumb" fly. This fly floats high in the water, and has been known to be absolutely deadly on pond raised carp that inhabit waterside restaurants, boardwalks, and city parks.


The dropper fly will be the deadly "Corn Fly," which has been a proven go-to for farm raised catfish. If the bread crumb doesn't get 'em, I know they'll be unable to resist the green giant niblets.


You guys can mess with all those itty bitty nymphs, midges, and scuds, in sizes so tiny that I can't even see to tie them (remember Bear? Last year you were getting totally frustrated just watching me attempt to tie those knots on tiny tippet), while I focus on trophy Guadalupe carp, catfish, and maybe even a sucker. Like the guadalupe redfish Matt caught last year.

Getting closer! I'm planning to leave Friday afternoon, and be there in time for cocktails on the deck and a nice steak at the Grist Mill. Anybody up for that?

Ready to go... George

I won't get out of the office until around 4ish, so I'll be rolling in around suppertime.

A attractor fly with a dropper fly is two flies in a ONE fly event:o

Mike - as punishment for not going you need to give up some of your cedar creek bass spots before the weekend!

For those still going - how do you want to handle food? Assign each person to bring something?

Probably how we should do it this year, too.
