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 […]

The Case of the Missing White Bass

Slideshow 2 Comments

Nostalgia is a bitch. Six or so years ago when i was really starting to get into fishing and exploring new water spots, both alone and with my family, it seemed like the possibilities were endless, with water and fish beckoning me everywhere. While i’m happy i got to experience that age of excess, it’s […]

Enchanted Rock & Bass

Texas Ponds and Lakes 2 Comments

Ever since my addiction to fly fishing started i have found myself making a majority of the decisions in my life based on how they might either increase or decrease the amount of time i get to spend in (or on) the water. While many folks close to me have doubtlessly noticed this, surely nobody […]

Carp On

Texas Rivers 12 Comments

I was a desperate man. With my trout appetite completely sated (see previous post) i had voluntarily made the mental jump to warm water fish, eager for something different. I was done with the cold water fishing, but still  the cool weather lingered. It was that cold, combined with my innate stubbornness, that found me at the […]

So Long and Thanks for all the Trout!

Trout 2 Comments

Well, despite the fact that this trout season on the Guadalupe river was accented by less water and more fishers than years past, it was still a hell of a lot of fun. This drought, the one that can’t seem to take a hint and leave long after the party’s over, continues to plague Texas […]

Most people don’t expect to trip and fall while walking from the cubicle to the water cooler, just as most fly fishers don’t expect to end up ass over tea kettle in the waters they’re plying. However, as we all know, things happen, and it can be a relief to know that thanks to a […]

D.I.Y. Fly Tying Station

Slideshow One Comment

There are quite a few personal milestones in fly fishing, and for many of us the first fish on the fly is followed closely by the first fish caught on a fly that we tied ourselves. It would be putting it mildly to say that while the simple act of fly fishing has an air of […]

The Confidence Fly and the Trout

Trout 2 Comments

Standing waist deep in the water, with the rain coming down and the freezing wind seeming to find a way to blow every direction at once, while i shook from the cold that somehow worked it’s way though two base layers, a down coat and a Gore-Tex rain shell, a thought occurred to me… “Hey Winston, guess […]

Where the Wind Blows (a day with All Water Guides)

Slideshow 2 Comments

The text came in late, but it was clear and direct, there was a spot on a raft that just happened to be floating down the Guadalupe tomorrow, and it begged to know if i was interested? Coming on the heels of a string of good adventures already happening a few days into the new […]

Starting Off On the Right Foot

Trout 6 Comments

December is mental murder for those (like i) that work in the retail world. Luckily i’ve been doing it for 26 years so it’s not quite the nightmare it could (and has been) in the past. Never the less, all conversations and fishing i managed during the month of December are little more than blurred […]
