April 10, Llano River

My son John and I went fishing with Chris Johnson on the Llano yesterday. We had a big day. John only fell in the river once.

Those are some nice fish. The fight that those Gaudalupe bass put up is very respectable, in addition to the quick water that they are caught in. Those things are a blast on a four weight!

John caught most of his fish on an olive moth pattern. He caught an ocean of sunfish and 10 or bass. I caught about a dozen guadalupe bass on an orange craw-bugger fly. All the fish came from the edges of deepwater pools with current. The guads were hammering flies early in the morning.

Way to get 'em hooked while they're young. (The boy, not the fish).
Ambiflydexterous:

The ability to tie a nail knot, or any other of several fly fishing knots, equally well with either hand.
