Default Re: My favorite freshwater quarry

My first bass with a fly rod was a "Guad" when I was 14. We were were camping at the old "Bean's Camp" on the Guadalupe River below the dam on River Road in '69(yea yea, I'm old). This was prior to all the houses, tubes, drunks, ........... Don't remember the fellow who ran the place but if heard cussing, loud music or see alcohol he ask you to leave.

I had dad's Shakespeare Wonder Rod (loved that white rod) with a matching Shakepseare automatic reel loaded with some kind of brown level line. Tossed a Black Wooley worm in a pocket behind a boulder and whack had a fiesty "Guad" jumping and diving in the current.

Been addicted ever since.
