I ran in to Sportsman’s Finest, my local fly shop, this afternoon and noticed that the book, Fly-Fishing the Texas Hill Country was released. i have an early edition by Bud Priddy, but have been anticipating the updated version for years. Texas fly fishing forums have been full of rumors about the release for a long time so I had to get it due to the hype.
If you fish in Texas or plan to fish in Texas, it’s a must have. All fishing spots mentioned have GPS coordinates making them easy to find. I just realized that my iPhone accepts coordinate inputs so I started inputing the more interesting sounding locations into my iPhone this evening for future use. Very very cool!
I also found out that an excellent access point is only about 15 miles from me at Reimer Ranch. I can’t wait to try it out. It’s supposedly a great Striper fishery. I wouldn’t have guessed that I would have a clear stream so close to my house. BTW, if you head down there, stop at Verdes Restaurant. It’s excellent. Went there today and had an interesting experience… waitress spilled an entire frozen drink on top of my head. I got a free shirt out of it.
