To fish, or not to fish?  What a stupid question!

Stopped by Swan Point last week and talked to Dave. He's looking forward to having us on that Friday. The Hell's Bay Owners are also have a soirée that weekend, so we may make some new friends that weekend.  I'll begin cranking things up this weekend, once I send Tracy to Indy for two weeks.

Looking forward to this one!

If you haven't already done so, please verify that your name is on the sign-up sheet. When we converted to the new sheets, the names were lost. I sent emails to everyone I had on there, but a name may have been missed by mistake.  I want to make certain I have everyone listed for the trip. Thanks.

Guys, we seriously need boats! We only have one person with a boat signed up right now.  If we don't get enough boats,  I see kayaks in many people's future......

Excellent.  We will be glad to have you join us.  When you say you have a crew of four on your sign in page does that mean you are bringing three others or you have room for three others?  Have you fly fished the Rockport/Port Aransas are much in the past? Would you say you're knowledgeable for that area.

We plan on many of us staying at the Drifters Resort located between Rockport and Aransas.  Is this something you might want to do.  If so let us know if you need a partner or two for the room.  The place is nice.  Keep in touch with us through this thread.  As you will see this outing is one of our BEST! Good Food, Great People, BIG FISH.

I can get a total of 4 people on my boat. I have fly fished there a couple of times, so no, I do not have extensive knowledge of the area. I was thinking I would stay at drifters.

As Golden said, rooms & boat spots will be assigned first come, first served.  The rooms are confirmed, so tell them you're with the Texas FlyFishers mob.

Supper on Saturday will be Mac's BBQ. I will need headcounts to order meals.
