Texas Flyfishers Annual Auction, 5th of May

Guided fly fishing trips on Texas hill country rivers and coastal flats, bonefishing in the Bahamas,  world class tarpon fishing in Costa Rica and Belize await the successful bidder this year at the Texas Flyfishers Annual Auction in Houston.

Add dry fly fishing trips to blue ribbon trout streams in Montana and Colorado and there’s a new adventure waiting for even the most well-traveled angler this year. The Cinco de Bayou edition of the annual event will be held May 5, 2018 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Bayou Sports Bar and Grill, 6011 Addicks Satsuma Road.

Newcomers to fly fishing as well as fishing enthusiasts of all persuasions – fly, spin and plug – are welcome to join this celebration of Houston’s fly fishing fraternity. It is an opportunity to pick up some tackle and tips to use this season and, in the process, perhaps line up a fishing trip of a lifetime.

Pre-fished the JSSFS, 2018-04-04

Went to Damon 7 Lakes with Steve for a chance to check out the waters before the event:  John Scarborough Sunfish Spectacular, 2018

We were on the water at 0800 with the wind strongly out of north. The surface water temperature was in the 70s, and the clarity was amazing.  The bluegill were staging just of the weedline, and hungry.  The LMB were focused on food, and the day went well.

Over 50 fish came to hand with almost all of them hitting topwater flies.

One LMB went over 3, and one of the ‘gills was over 8″

Still watching the weather to see if I want to bring rain-gear for the Friday camping.
