Got to try my new 5 weight out on a squirrel today. Tie a peanut on the leader and have some fun. Only downside is they chew up the leader quickly. Eric
10 anglers sat around the campfire after fishing on Friday. A lot of fish were caught, mostly white bass. Yellow bass, largemouth bass, freshwater drum, gar, and buffalo also came to hand. On Saturday the rest of the crew arrived. The count I have is 22 TTF folks on the water on Saturday. The fly of the day seemed to be a version of the Cowen’s Coyote, in a size 8. There is probably a list of flies that worked that day. If it was small, and looked alive, it seemed to catch fish.
Over the years we have had quite a few books donated to the club. They have been sitting idle for years. So we have started putting them up on eBay to bring funds into Texas FlyFIshers' accounts. This is the group from a few days ago. More to come.
Sat, March 20 Day trip to West Galveston Bay area, launching at Waterman Marina and Bait Camp. Boat or Kayak a must. Meet at 7:30 am.

TFF was supposed to go the the Nueces, but we had a crazy winter freeze. I need to get out on the water so next Wednesday, 2021-02-24-0800, I plan to fish Harmon Creek for white bass. This is not an official TFF trip, but there is safety in numbers.
New owners have been doing a great job of getting ready for the 2021 fishing season. The grass is cut, the parking areas are clear. It is looking good, and the work continues. I got a late start and was able to launch easily. The water was very low, but extremely clear. I made it up to "Brighty Blue" bay dragging across a few sandbars. All of the white bass that came to hand were undersized males. I did also land a few decent black bass. The fly that worked was an SF fiber Clouser, size 10, in rainbow. I did try the coyote clouser, but the water was so clear that it actually spooked the fish.
