Also great to fillet, because you can't damage their population.

Re: Texas Hillcountry Fly Assortment Needed

Thanks everyone. As much as I hate to have lost my vice, I think my wife is happy about the lack of spun deer-hair clippings all over the house. 8)

I will definately go the local route, or take up some offers of fellow anglers here on the forum. Thanks again!

Re: Etiquette Astream - Refresher

I have an interesting scenario... Whenever I get to the river and I see another angler, after some small-talk (i.e. weather, names exchanged, whats working, etc.) I always ask "are you working upstream or down. I'm usually met with a confusing look as many fishermen tend to not move but instead park...

San Marcos TX - With a river of the Same Name

Okay, I have to admit that I am ashamed of myself here. I have been living in San Marcos now for almost a year and have yet to actually fish the river of the same name! I have been spending the past year fishing the Blanco as I have obtained some sweet access points (these are very difficult to get ...

Re: Creek Fishing

Nice Pics.... I love fishing creeks, as it reminds me, albeit MUCH hotter, grabbing the topo map and fishing for 8" brookies in New Hampshire. I dont want anyone to burn any spots, but can anyone recommend a nice (shady) creek in the San Marcos area? I want to bust out my old 3-weight and the namesa...
