Well I have found another new location to fish here in town. I am so amazed that few if anybody fishes these areas that I find, but it is so. I called up Mike Quigley as I knew I could get him fired up to fish this past Saturday. We met up and as he was driving up in his truck I already had a bass in hand. My daughter's boy friend Dale had told me about the location last week as it was directly across the street from their new Apartment. He said I should come over and check it out. I did! her are some photos from yesterday.
My first...Harry you recognize that fly?
Did I say the water was in good shape!
Here was an interesting location.
Mike's olive wooley bugger kick my butt.
Hmmm some shade there ought to be some bass back there.
This is Dale and his first ever bass caught on a fly rod. Oh yeah he got hooked bad! HAHAHA
Another interesting spot.
Here is what Mike caught there. It is a talapia. This bayou system has yielded more variety than any place I know.
Mike was throwing some awesome loops and caught a ton of fish. He slammed out easily.
It is always nice to know that within ten to fifteen minutes in any direction from my house there is excellent fishing. I wonder how many of you have been interested enough in your sport to do what I have done. Google earth is a great spot to get started. Call up one of your buddies and go have some fun. Soon Dale will be another new Texas Flyfisher as he had a blast. He did OK but the more he goes the better he'll get. I guess that applies to all of us. Chow brothers.
