Day 1: The first meeting of the trip will be on the South Llano River just below the tubers area.  We’ll wadefish this area getting out casting skill honed, and practicing with various flies.  Meeting later at Isaak’s , time TDB.

Day 2:  Launch from KC-150, and float down to just above the state park.  We’ll use a livery service (SOUTH LLANO RIVER CANOES & KAYAKS: Curtis Thomas, Located 6 miles south of Junction off Highway 377 on the South Llano River) and meet up early.  More fishing time, less paddling.  Direction from Junction to meet-up point for Livery

Day 3:  Bridge to bridge where the river crosses US 377.  This time somebody bring a GPS.  We paddled through way to fast on this stretch last year and missed some prime fishing.

I still haven't decided if I am going to use a canoe this year or stay with the kayak.

I think we should go ahead and float the same section we had last year.

The fishing was great, ad the parking was secure.

I'll call our livery service and set it up.

Any objections?  Deadline for those will be this Thursday night.....
