    Default Hill Country Summer

    Headed out this past Saturday, the heat got up earlier than I did. (77 degrees at 5:57 AM)


    Actual soundtrack for the day

    Headed north


    Hit some nice spots, caught eager bass on poppers






    Then the swimmers arrived, so I headed off to another river


    Caught ridiculous numbers of small fish using a new style





    Texas has riffles, bugs, and mountain goats too




    This section of river gets nasty flooding about every 5 years. This pile was way above my head.


    Finished the day by pulling a few out of this gorgeous section


    All of them were small, but 80 and half on top is always fun. Tenkara review here for those interested-

    I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.

    Very nice e-story there Cliff. The format was great with the soundtrack and pic. And it looks like you had a great time too. Cool.

    Hi Cliff
    Great pictures of what sounds like a great day trip... I liked your review. That type of fishing reminds me of way back when you got a 10-11 ft bamboo stick with a piece of cord on the end with a hook & worm & went to a farm pond to lift gills. I haven't done that in a while..
    Great post but

    Steve Earle is an acquired taste, kinda like hoppy beer: You get to like the bitter bite over all the blandness of the alternatives.

    Cliff - last couple of pics look like the Medina...am I right? An awfully pretty river in places.

    By the way Cliff...If you like Steve Earle you've got to pick up Live at the Bluebird Cafe - Steve, Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt together...Don't get much better for Texas boys than that!!!!!!!

    Its the Upper Guad. You're right, Bluebird is a great album, had it for years. Been too long, I need to give it a listen.
