Re: Colorado Bend....White Bass

Mike Sweeney and I ran into Maurice last Wednesday up at Bend as he was taking off his gear. He said he had caught if I remember correctly @ 70 fish catch and release of course. Mike and I proceded to go fishing and I was having a hookup on practically every cast. The fish were mainly males so there...

Jimbo, TFO refers to the Finesse 5/6 glass rod so since you were fishing poppers, I presume you were using a floating line but was it a 5 or 6 wt. and have you tried both weights with it?

After semi-badmouthing The Fly Shop, I probably should have posted a message a few weeks ago as I received all the hooks I ordered from them. They look exactly like Tiemco, use the same numbers and if you put the same style and size side by side you can't tell the difference. They tie up nicely and ...

This will be interesting, maybe. I placed my order with a guy named Sandy who said they had a couple of the hooks I wanted in stock, he thought. So I could be getting some from their old supplier and some of the Fly Shop's new hooks when they fill their back orders. I hope the comparison will be int...

I don't know about the white river hooks either but to throw another potato in the pot, if you got The Fly Shop catalogue for 2007 they were bragging on their in house hooks. In order to stay on their mailing list you are supposed to place an order during the calendar year and since its a pretty nic...

Bill, I guess my Father was lucky or the regs changed. He had a place on the Guad about a mile below the Gruene Rd crossing with the end of some rapids at the upper end then the beginning of a long deep pool. He had a small jon boat and from the 50's thru the mid 80's would fish and float down the p...

Ron, Thanks again for your help but especially after reading your reply to Jimbo I have a couple of questions. When you say you tie it hook down does that mean you move the wing to the top side of the hook and it seems the location of the wing is the biggest difference in the way you tie the cats wh...

Ron, Thank you for your prompt response. I would imagine there are a few other members out there who will benefit from your post. You were right in that I had to go to the second link. I still remember seeing the pictures your daughter took of that big rainbow last winter at Rocking R right after yo...

Then there was one from fly depot with the same tail but estaz body bead chain eyes and no mara...

There is a good article on the Guadalupe bass restocking effort in the friday june 15th issue of the San Antonio Express-news by Ron Strait in the sports section. As with most news articles you wonder how much of what you read is actual fact as Strait talks about restocking the Colorado and San Anto...

I would suggest stopping by the Tackle Box on North New Braunfels at the south end of Sunset Ridge Shopping Center. Ask for Bruce Young and if he doesn't have any he can probably tie you some. He is off on Monday but there any other day
