On Saturday, I had a little extra time to fill while my son was at a birthday party. So I did some chores around the house. Well, that’s what my wife would have preferred. As you probably guessed, I went fishing.
I decided to run over to Reimers Ranch to check out the Pedernales River. […]
In the low desert mountains of New Mexico, meandering between the dry, brush covered arid hills, flows a gin-clear, trout-infested oasis of a stream. 5 miles of the Rio Penasco are on Charlie Mulcock’s ranch about 10 miles outside of the tiny town of Mayhill, NM. The ranch has been in his family for 106 […]
Back in high school, a friend of mine was an avid fly fisher. When we wanted to go out, he would sometimes stay home and tie flies. I made fun of him endlessly for this. He also would go about a block away from his house and fly fish in a little stream called Barton […]
With the oppressive temperatures in Texas this time of year, my fishing window has shrunk to mornings between 7:00a and about 10:00a. This morning, I ran out to Reimers Ranch to see just how bad this drought affected my new homewater river.
I just couldn’t get out of bed before 8:30 so I didn’t get […]
Made a quick trip out to the Lampasas River outside of well, Lampasas. It was just too darned hot to enjoy for long. I can do too darned cold as evidence by my trips way back in the archives of this blog, but hot isn’t my cup of tea.

I was hoping to post a fishing report about my incredible Guadalupe trip on my birthday but I’m afraid I can’t do it due to a boneheaded move on my part. At the end of the fairly uneventful trip, I was carefully pulling the two sections of my favorite fly rod, the Favorite from
Purpose of the trip today was to start teaching my son, Parker how to fish with a fly rod and flies instead of frozen hot dogs which was his primary bait up to now. Although he’s only 6 (almost 7) he is extremely interested in fly fishing and watching me tie flies so with my […]
On Saturday morning, I stopped by Sportman’s Finest for the Casting for Recovery benefit. I was just running by for a few minutes to sign up for a raffle to win an overly excellent handmade wooden fly tying material box or a TFO rod and give my money to a good […]
So, it isn’t exactly the Provo River in UT like one of my previous home waters, but it’s not bad either.
I took a 20 minute drive out to the Pedernales River at Reimer Ranch today for a few hours. The drive out is a nice hilly trip with little traffic and some nice views. […]
While I was in Houston for a Christmas visit with the family, I snuck out to a manmade pond at my mother-in-laws office. Not exactly the most serene natural setting but it would have to do. I brought my new Headwaters bamboo 5 wt rod to try out.
Conditions were a bit nasty with drizzle […]
