Fishing the "middle" Guadalupe

Post by Ron Mc » Mon Sep 21, 2009 8:42 am

Fished one of our favorite crossings on the Guadalupe yesterday, and we haven't fished it since late last fall.
I can remember when this place was a secret, and you never saw anyone, or if you did, you worried about the movie Deliverance.
But a late friend dubbed it the "40 crossing" because he drove by there one day and 40 cars were parked around the bridge.
So the water gets hit hard, and meat-fished.
it was a beautiful morning
Image
And you can see why we can't stay away...
Image

Image
guess its not too surprising that most people in the group are fishing glass now
Image
cane rodmaker Floyd Burkett was along with us
Image
and I was fishing his new Driggs taper (2nd tip is not complete)
really, I brought my System 5, but I took up Floyd on the test drive
Image
7'2" 5-wt. parabolic - does everything - roll cast and load to shoot line like a canon- I gotta get one of these...
Image
Texas brook trout live here
Image
see?
Image
we're really not pounding this as bad as it looks - we're all facing a deep, deep run
Image
that produced a couple of nice bass, in spite of the meat fishermen that sweep through
Image
Image
and a couple of more that got away, but that's all part of it

Looks like fun.

I don't recognize the spot, but I ain't got time to fish soon anyway.
I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer, and I practice moderation in moderation.

I know that spot it's ****** *****..........
Looks like a lot of fun. I missed out because of the Tower of the America's Car Show we put on to benefit The Children's Bereavement Center of South Texas. Only teo more shows this season and then i can really get back to flyfishing.

Sorry for the late post, but I couldn't figure out the email thing. Thanks for taking us Ron, I had a blast.
The first bass of the day for me.
Image
Ron with a fish, he's smiling because he just pointed the camera at me when he saw I was gonna take a picture, but I didn't hit the shutter button soon enough.
Image
Tony's big sunny.
Image
Another Bass
Image
I hooked a bigger one in the same holding spot but after he slipped the hook he layed low.
Image
My first rio grande ever.
Image
I hit the big fish spot again, but he was scorned for the day.
Image
Another shot, same fish.
Image
And Tony's first bass on a handtied fly, although my camera didn't zoom that far I could see his smile from where I was standing.
Image
Kiss My Bass!

I didn't get any pictures since I left my camera setting next to the computer. I must have checked my bag half a dozen times when we got there I was so sure that camera was in there. Really had a great time on some beautiful water. Thanks Ron!!

One day I will get a camera and contribute to threads like this.

It was a terrific day fishing beautiful water with a great group of anglers. Thanks, Ron, for making it happen.

You might be rich, Trent, which, I have it on some authority, doesn't help your odds of going to heaven.

Something about a camel and an eye of a needle?

"......yet, with God, all things are possible". Funny, I read that verse yesterday.
Thanks,
