    Default Hckf 2

    Squeezed in a short trip on a Sunday afternoon. Scenery was better than the catching, but it beat the hell out of diapers and TV.

    On the way, shame Willie's no longer there weekly-


    Road shots-



    Big clear pool with super spooky fish-


    Drained by a nice run-


    Typical fish for the day-


    But TX Sunfish are kinda aggressive. That's a size 4 conehead streamer with a zonker strip-


    Note to self, take more time and better pix next trip.

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

    This trip was a bit more fun- http://www.theflyfishingforum.com/fo...reds-8863.html

    Cliff,
    Is that in Helotes. I used to take my kids there on Sunday afternoons when I was a resident in the early 80's. Had the best Tamales I ever ate. also check out my thread about Lake Gilmer and give me a shout if you know anything. Nice photos.

    That is indeed in Helotes. Haven't eaten there yet, may have too.

    I know nothing about lake Gilmer. Fish Bones/Steve is likely to though. Texas Fishing Forum - discussion, tournaments, guides, events, destinations, and more. is a pretty good resource.

    Thanks Cliff,
    My daughter, who is a lawyer in New Orleans, and expecting her first child and my 3rd grandchild was 4 years old, and we would go out there on Sunday afternoon, eat tamales, and dance and have a few brews. At least once a month, Willie would show up and sit in with the band. They would let a few of us sit in too, back when I could actually play the fiddle. It was a real hoot watching kids from 3 to 93 all dancing the 2 step on the same concrete dance floor.
