There is a definite sense of serenity that comes from tying natural and synthetic fibers around a hook with nothing but some thread and an ever expanding knowledge of hitches, wraps and finely honed skills. However, since it’s hard to always have fly tying material at hand, i’ve found myself countless times sketching flies on […]

“So I am NOT going to end up with my vehicle towed or the police here if I drive around the locked gate?” i asked for a second time, noting the exact words the gentleman located in a hidden LCRA bunker somewhere replied with. “No sir, you are TOTALLY fine. Enjoy and have a good […]

Well, if you are anywhere near Texas, you know that summer is here in full force. While random showers have been bringing some very minor relief (minor, but still much appreciated) the drought continues to linger as the heat has been rising, causing swarms of people to gravitate to what little water is left in […]

Misfits & Monsters

Texas Rivers No Comments

Growing up in the eighties as a skater in a midwest town, i was lucky / unlucky enough to experience the “Dork Days of Skating”. It was an era (much like any John Hughes film of that time) when girls were actually repulsed by skaters and the jocks seemed intent on terrorizing us mostly because […]

Man, it’s been a while. Not that i haven’t been fishing, it’s just that my non-fishing life has seemed to once again take over most aspects of my life. What time i have spent on the water has mostly been spent on the lower Colorado, trying desperately to figure out how to achieve one of […]

Against the Current

Texas Rivers No Comments

For various reasons i try to not mix my personal life with my work life. It’s not that there’s anything to hide on either end (virtually impossible to do in this age of instant everything), it’s just that a healthy work / personal interest thing seems to work for me, and help keep me more […]

The Lower Colorado River

Texas Rivers 5 Comments

There is nothing like the satisfaction of spending countless hours perusing maps, trying to figure it all out, eventually locating a possible spot on the satellite photo, and pulling in days later to the sight of a fly fishing guides vehicle parked with an empty trailer in tow. It feels like a graduation, a “Where’s […]

Lost in the Hill Country Searching for Water

Slideshow One Comment

The plan was simple, three days of responsibility and catching up, followed by two full days of time behind the wheel and rod. Day 1 was spent preparing for and absorbing the amazing night that was the Fly Fishing Film Tour here in Austin (more on that soon). That was followed by days 2 and […]

Back in Bass on Homewaters

Texas Freshwater Fish 2 Comments

Okay, as a human being that has suffered through over a decade of mind melting summers here in central Texas, i am surely not going to complain about the cool weather that we are STILL experiencing in mid April. However, while i appreciate the cool air and the opportunity it provides to make use of […]

Wipers on the Llano

Texas Rivers 3 Comments

In my continuing search to find some white bass running in local Texas waters that harbored not only the spawning bass, but also clear water, some scenery and a modicum of “wilderness”, i recently ended up on the Llano near Kingsland for the second time in a week. The week before i had driven out […]
