Re: Help Picking Wading boots (Felt or rubber?)

I second Korkers for a lot of reasons. Check them out at Feather-Craft in St Louis. I think right off you get both felt and vibram that are interchangeable.

Llano River outing

This was my first outing with the rod that Tim Zietak recently rebuilt for me, a reproduction Leonard 48DF 3/2 4 wt. I was on the North Fork of the Llano River. I thought I had fished out this hole.

Nothing under 20 inches along this stretch

I just happened to have my ruler. Figures don't lie.

The cat in the last clip shows how nice it is to be out on the water at this time of the year.

Fishing bonus

We scared each other - my looks and his snort.

It is not easy to get this close to an Axis buck, especially this nice.

It is a Tim Zietak Leonard 48.

The rod is currently in Pittsburg for repair and will be as good as new.

We cannot buy rain in Kerrville.
