It was a long day, but worth it(even though i got skunked!)
Three of my friends and I went twenty minutes to a local pond that we thought was stocked... we showed up and an old man was cursin, my friend went over and talked to him while the rest of us got our gear ready, by the time we were ready to go, our friend came back and told us it wasn't stocked... we all wanted to fish, so my friend said "lets get our waders and go to the guadalupe river!"
so everyone agrees, so i take a kid, and the other driver takes a kid, and we split up so we could all get our waders... after thirty minutes of waiting at our meeting spot we get a call back from them finally saying they cannot go...
so we go on without them, and its a good forty minute drive to a place that lets you on the river that is cheap, and not crowded.
at one point there are so many fishers we decided to just stay up stream, after my fourth or so cast, my casting still isn't looking that good, and my line went straight up and went a slammin distance of four yards all bunched up... so i decided to let the current take it and work it back slowly, two seconds later my line takes off! i set the hook or whatever its called in the fly world
my friend its a good sized one keep tension reel in the line and just keep reeling, so when i get the line the fish is still... i continue to try reeling and just can't so my friend said pull it in... my first tug the thing spat out my fly
so we fished there a while no bites, we go up river a mile fishing as we walk... on our way back i was walking in water to below my pecs and looking for rocks as i walked... i saw a rock but i didn't step high enough and i slipped down and got drenched inside my waders! it was so cold! and i got lucky my phone didn't get soaked and my can didn't break open... can't copenhagen use plastic?
so that was very uneventful! but once we go back to where we started all the other fishermen were gone, so we walk to where they were and look in... the area was filled with bout 30 or so trout! we threw everything we had at em, nothing bit! disappointed we took off, when we were walkin back the owner asked us if we had any luck... we told him what happened... he responded "same with everyone else, guess its just that they gotta get used to the environment, and maybe because they just came last morning from the hatchery that they're still stuffed..."
and that is my tedious explanation of my first trip... i had a ton of fun, and i feel as if my skills improved throughout the day!
