Since I haven't fished the Rio in awhile, the last post got me thinking I should go give it a shot. Flows were 55-59cfs, water 87 at Rainbow@noon , 78 at Rio@5pm, water was a bit murky, and wading in the river really stired up the bottom producing clouds of mud in my downstream wake. I started out a...

And it's mighty inconvenient having to take boots all the time just so I can keep track of the numbers. Every time I get to twenty. I get to eat a Jolly Rancher. I go through bags of these all the time! Actually I haven't fished up at Rio all summer. I've only fished the Guadalupe maybe a half dozen...

I've been warned before, but I just can't seem to stop myself from collecting fishing gear. I've also been told that if I keep adding to the collection that I should sell some of the pieces that I don't use anymore and I can't seem to bring myself to that point either. The only pieces that actually ...

I need to try out some of these rods next time I can hook up with your tribe! We'll have a rod fest, all mine are graphite but maybe there's a few you mite like to try. Jimbo

That's one pretty reel and the name sounds familiar, but I don't remember seeing one before. Speaking of fiberglass rods, a friend of mine has a sweet little 7 1/2' 4 wt. Shakespear white wonder rod. It's one cool little rod. He doesn't fish with it much but he won't sell it to me because it was his...

Looks like you have a new reel. What is this one called? By the way I finally found a San Miguel 2 and it's a "Cast for the Cure" 12/100 with an extra spool. I am very lucky! Jimbo

Man you take great photographs. That water looks mighty good even at these flow levels. My right hand/wrist is still sore but it's been two weeks and I've got to fish! Jimbo

Hill Country Rivers

With the Guadalupe below Canyon Lake reduced to a trickle and the Medina River not much better, I was wondering if anyone is still fishing around the Hill Country and having success. I was thinking about driving out to the Nueces or Frio. Then again it's a good drive from San Antonio, so I thought I...

The article says it could not be accepted as a IGFA record because the catch violated California state law that the fish be hooked in the mouth, which it wasn't. So the IGFA record is moot because to be an IGFA record it must also comply with the state game laws. It is a hugh fish, but not legally t...

A long time ago I was at McBrides in Austin, it must have been in the late 70's. I went in to buy a Shimano reel and the man behind the counter showed me an antique reel. He handed it to me and asked my opinion of the reel. It was a hand made reel, I forgot the name of it, that was made by some Doct...

That's the ticket! Love that huge brass guide next to the handle. And that carrying case, that's worth as much as the rod I bet. Kinda of like antique lures in their original boxs, worth much more than just the lure alone. I bet that reel is a direct drive knuckle buster, like the one I learned to f...

This is one time where spinning and baitcasting gear would rule the day 99 times out of a 100. I've done a lot of competitive fishing on the Texas Bass Trail in the 1980's and 90's. Fishing; BAST, Honey Hole, and Two Guys Bass Tournaments. I can't think of a time during these tournaments where flyfi...
