Trip report, South Llano River float trip, 2021

We chose to launch at the second crossing, with a launch start of 0730. Everything was working fairly well. 2 pots of coffee were quickly consumed with the breakfast casserole that Larry made. This year we chose to once again do the livery on our own. Load as many kayaks on trailers and run up to the launch point. Unload everything, bring the trailers back, and have only one car drop off the trailer haulers. It almost worked too. Next year, we should be able to do a bit better. The first pool had every single one of us stop and fish. For some reason we never do get by this spot easily. Once we starting catching fish, the pressure of the "skunk" was off, and the group was relaxed enough to continue downstream. More, and pictures, below......

JSSFS 2021, report

The weather didn't cooperate, again, but there were almost 40 people, mostly families, that made the event, in spite of the weather. A lot of fish were caught, but the bite was slow. I don't think anybody was skunked. Quite a few first-timers came out to see what it was all about. Winner of the Event? : Picture below

Harmon Creek trip report, 2021-03

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.
