Re: Getting ready for topwater action - What flies are you tying?

Right now--some traditional styled steelhead flies for an upcoming trip. A bit after that, some bass and panfish flies, mainly small foam poppers and a few streamers.

Re: Sakasa Kebari (Tenkara front-facing hackle)

Well done! And these style flies will work in the Guadalupe. I've had success in the past with them, using them to present a bit different profile of the naturals.

Glad you did what you did! You got a double bonus--cleaned up a bit and released a fish. Thanks!

Re: Peacock Elk Hair Caddis

Have never used it on the Guadalupe, but it should work fine if tied in the right sizes (would likely go with 16, 18, and even 20). Also might consider it as an emerger pattern, just lighten up on the elk, shorten the elk to one-quarter or one-half the body length, and might also tie in a tidbit of ...

Re: KC and the Sunshine Band

All look great and should produce. I am partial to white, then black. You might consider tying them in red, purple and gray also.

Re: What's In Your Fly Box for Guadalupe River Trout?

No worries--if you search a bit more, you may find a picture of it also. I thought there was a post a while back that included the picture, but that may have been on another site.

Did a search through the forum and found this for you. The first paragraph in his post has the recipe.

Re: Fenwick fly rod

Don't listen to Ron or Jimbo or anyone else who try to tell you these are nice rods and great fishing tools. They cast terribly and are too fragile to use for any fish over a half pound. Not sure what Fenwick was thinking when they made those rods! That said, I would be very willing to take the 605 ...

Re: New to tying - looking for a unique resource...

I don't think there is such a thing. If I understand correctly, you're looking for a reference that would tell you what flies you can tie with (for example) partridge, yellow thread, peacock herl, white antron. If that is what you seek, I have never heard of such a reference. Of course that does not...

Re: Scud back material?

Sounds like you got a bad batch. You might consider using sandwich or some other type of plastic bag. Just cut the strips to width. I've never bought the material you refer to--I've always used clear plastic that is easy to find around the house.

Re: Tonalist Oil Painting: Evening on the Guad

Seems to closely resemble like the area downstream from Action Angler; looking upstream. But the apparent bend in the river (in the painting) is throwing me off. Very nicely done painting!

Trot Lines

Just a word of caution to those that wade, tube, or kayak the rivers here. With the low flows, the trot lines are becoming something to be cautious of, especially in sections that are much shallower than normal. I have encountered two or three in the last couple of weeks. One had some HUGE hooks on ...

Got it Ron. I have kept places we've fished together close hold, but didn't think about how fragile Cibolo can be, especially right now. I edited my post to remove some of the info.

Re: Cibolo Creek Help - First Timer

My wife enjoyed our walk out there. I did not fish while were were there, but there are trails to follow, benches to sit on, plenty of shade, etc. BTW, a 3 wt will be fine, but you may want it no longer than 7.5', the shorter the better, and short/roll casting may be a must in some spots. To be hone...
