Apparently people in southeastern Oklahoma are in some kind of time warp. Mullets are still in style and harvesters of 8″ trout can still be found easily there. Kids running out of their family pickup into the local McDonalds that answer to “Chigger” and “Mutt” just add to the local flavor. Oh Broken Bow, I still love you.
An Encyclopedia of Fishing Flies is an elegantly designed print book to iPhone application translation. It contains over 1000 flies including pictures, recipes and nice, closeup photography. In addition, there are even chapters on the history of fly fishing as it relates to flies and […]
Brandon, of @onebugisfake Twitter handle, has been working overtime to assemble a weekend of fly fishing and down home Texas music in October. It should be a great time for everyone. On top of it all, proceeds benefit Project Healing Waters which is a fine organization that gives you an even better reason to attend. […]
My father-in-law happens to have a client (he’s a CPA) that owns a vacation home in Breckenridge Colorado. Oh to inherit oil rights. It’s amazingly common in Texas and parts of the South. My family goes there yearly as she lets us stay at the house when we want. It’s at the top of a […]
I’ve always been fascinated with John Gierach’s short stories. I’m not sure if I’ll ever achieve the slacker ways of true Trout Bum status as I’ve chosen a life path that won’t allow me to spend my entire existence on cold water streams but reading his stories can transport me temporarily to Lyons Colorado where […]
I promise, I have not abandoned this blog. I have been fishing but just can’t get myself to post to this blog thingy of mine. Seems like every time I get around to sitting down at my Mac or iPad to compose some witty blog post in the fly fishing blogger’s snarky tone of voice, […]
I was poking around on my Mac the other day and found a bunch of videos I took with my old iPhone 3gs. One in particular was kind of cool as it showed what Barton Creek can look like when we have a decent amount of rain. It looks so “trouty”.
I’ve been itching to get a boat again after watching the local tweeps from the sidelines talk about all the water they’ve been accessing lately. Being a wader only in Texas really limits the spots you can fish. Having a 4 door sedan and a Mini Cooper doesn’t make it easy to get the more […]
So I’ve never been in a drift boat before. I’ve had lots of them float by me on the Guadalupe while I envied the paying client being told exactly where to fish, when to mend, and how to hold the fish for the perfect grip and grin shot. Being ferried around to all the honey […]
I’ve been a long time podcast listener ever since the days when Geek News Central was just starting and podcasters were trying to figure out what encoding format to use. Fly fishing podcasts have come and gone and some have stood out as worth listening to on a regular basis. Some of the ones I […]
