any color larva lace you have around. I mentioned on the other thread I'm using insect green, light olive, rusty brown and this orange brown.

of course now that I showed you, I'll have to kill you.

Jimbo, I got ahold of one of Andy's 7'ers. It's a really useful rod - more so than the 6'. I guess there are a few places the 6' can't be beat, but the 7' rod will fish almost anywhere in the hill country. It's a rocket with a soft tip. A really great-casting rod. In the back yard this afternoon, I ...

the upper river was a blast in that cool blast (went to a section of the river with bluffs and cypress tunnels so we were sheltered from the wind).

But the spotted bass were out of the holes and up in the deeper riffles. Roll cast, swing, and lift the rod tip. Fish after fish.

I have an FF605, and this is a Much better rod than the Fenwick. The Lee Wulff replica will roll cast with aplomb, and the little Fenwick will not roll cast well at all. (lined up, lined down, doesn't matter - it just doesn't have the backbone for it) You know me, I have an arsenal of these, Para/Me...

it rained last night and the lower crossings were chocolate. We saw some big fish sign at the chocolate crossings, though and Ewell had big bass cut his leader on the granite - he said he's going to use wire tippet on the Pedernales from now on. :) (I think he means it.) we were in the last couple o...

I had a Spotted bass swallow a 5" bluegill on me earlier this year. After 3 trips around the pool, he spit the bluegill and I released it in fairly good shape. But when I went back, couldn't find the fish again. Went with another bud exploring several crossings on the Pedernales between Fredericksbu...
