Re: Introducing Rocky...
I can definitely see why you'd rather go to NM than trek to the Guad to fish for trout, I sure would. I just asked about the devil's because I thought it was half way close to you, then I check a map and see that it's 450 miles. Even though its near Del Rio, I guess it might as well be Central TX for you.
Ever fish Baja? looks like its a shorter trip than Galveston for you. or maybe thats the "gulf" you meant.
