Re: Stocking up for this season.

Lovely flies. Lots of fish are going to have a tingly sensation in their jaws this year.

BTW, the PT tied the way Frank Sawyer tied it is my favorite small nymph (size 18 or so).

Re: The Slab

That big bass is some fish. Congratulations. And the lesson about how to deal with a deeply hooked fish is a valuable one.

Re: San Antonio River

Yes, I have, last weekend.

Nice current, easy to wade, great water to use chicken gizzards to tempt wily catfish.

Re: Hitting the Hill Country

Great photos, Jimbo. I used to fish Brushy quite frequently. Best fishing was far away from the obvious access points (of course, the entire river is a short walk from the road). And, I was privileged to fish the first stretch in your essay, the private water. I've been there with you and Ron, and i...

The near future is the distant past. I like that. Sort of like going through a worm hole, nonlinear time with a vengeance.

Re: Scud back material?

I don't think the material matters (and, a fortiori, the color) because most scud patterns, especially if they are tied with any weight, will ride upside down. The back material isn't intended to imitate the bug, but to make the back streamlined in order to facilitate quick sinking.

Re: Hondo Creek

A great day indeed. Mainly due to the company, but the fish didn't hurt. Not to mention the natural beauty of the site. Man, but I love crystal clear water. Thanks, Ron.

Unless you're thinking of fishing lakes and streams in Belize, you might have better luck posting this in the Saltwater board.

Re: Okoboji-Not the Hill Country

Looks like great water, Cress. And, to answer your question, I think that Jimbo's advice is sound, but, imo, XUL is so much more efficient and elegant for fishing that kind of water that I don't particularly see the point of stretching the concept of fly fishing beyond its limits. To think about it ...

Re: lodging

New England is too close to Texas for us to find lodging; we just commute. You might want to try a forum that's a bit farther away, say in Argentina.

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

A very good facsimile of almost any type of fly can be tied with thread and hackle. I suggest that you look up the standard types of flies and use thread and a medium grade hackle to make a very fishable version of each. Or, in a similar vein, fine wire and some fur.
