    Re: Anyone else get this?

    I was a trained assassin for many years. After narrowly escaping that, I had 16,000 living things under my care and tried very hard to keep them all alive. I pushed tons of heavy metal and searched...

    Re: Texas newbie to fly fishing

    It’s crazy in fly fishing how many options there are on gear. Tiny zero weights up to marlin rods.

    The Guadalupe River is the only trout stream thanks to an uninterrupted flow of cold water...

    Re: WTB: TFO Mini Mag 8-10

    Those shorter rods like the Minimag lineup struggle to get a big following. I gave my 6/8 weight Minimag to my daughter’s good friend. I flat out wore that rod out and it looked like h*ll, but it...

    Re: Fishing Laguna Madre Padre island

    It should be possible to catch fish there without a guide. I’ve never once hired an inshore guide 150 miles up the coast and manage to locate and catch a variety of fish on the fly. Nothing wrong...

    Re: Whats a succesful fishing trip?

    It's great getting away from work and the other obligations and distractions and noise. I love my wife, but it's healthy for both of us for me to go fishing. I do a mix of solo trips and outings with...

    Re: Any Fellow Texans on here?

    My buddy has caught one in the low 20' range and had others even larger on the line, but break off. Snook have a way of cutting through thinner nylon or fluorocarbon. I had two shots at a couple of...
  8. Re: Whatís the biggest fight - Saltwater Edition

    I’ve caught 10 pound class bluefish on light tackle in Chatham MA. They are good fighters with wicked teeth. IMO, Jack creavelle have them beat on strength and run and also being a pain in the tail....

    Re: Any Fellow Texans on here?

    Aren’t gators(the reptilian type) pretty thick in Hall’s bayou above FM2004?

    Chocolate Bayou evidently has a good population of snook up stream.

    I’ve fished Austin Bayou up above 2004. Lots...

    Gafftopsail are strong, they’d be real bad boys if they got bigger. I bet they are something on a 3wt.
  11. Re: Whatís the biggest fight - Saltwater Edition

    Most of the Jack crevalle we see here on the Upper Texas Coast are either tiny <1 pound models or north of 15 pounds. The >15# ones are just a pain to deal with. They run and run and run about all...

    Re: A couple of reds and a first for me.

    Nothing worse than a redfish nosing a pattern without sucking it in. I hate when that happens.

    Enjoyed the report and the comments. Keep them coming!

    Re: A couple of reds and a first for me.

    Nice report. Interesting about the flies and how selective the fish were.

    Iíve seen sharks while fishing and even hooked a few on flies, but havenít had one take a fish yet.

    Looks good to me, but I’ve got zero experience with that particular material. I do like translucent, see through, baitfish shaped patterns in the saltwater. In my experience, sometimes too much flash...

    Jay Leno has 286 vehicles, let’s ask him how many cars are enough.

    If you have a passion for something, you are naturally going to want to surround yourself with more of it.

    Re: How many is enough?

    One is enough, that’s all I can manage to cast and fish at any given moment.

    Let’s see, I have one 2 weight, one 4 weight, two 5 weights, one 5/6 weight, two 6 weights, one 7 weight, three 7/8...

    I think so. I like machined and anodized Aluminum over cast and the price difference isn’t a giant difference. What is it $80 more? If you ever went to the saltwater, a machined anodized reel is...
