A site for inshore fly fishermen and tyers.
Coming to the island in August and looking for information about wading with the fly rod in the areas of Holley Beach, in front of the Convention Center and behind the IBC. Comments and recommendations are welcome. Thanks
Bill & I fished the ship channel last evening. Caught 30+ skip jacks and 2 trout. Used 30# tippet and still got snapped off 3 times. Air was 55 but the water was 65. Tied up a new crab fly, took an hour to work up and it was snapped off in 2 minutes. Still looking for the snook that are suppose to make the channel their home.

We held our 3rd Annual One Fly Tournament yesterday. Twelve of our members braved the 46 degree morning to try and catch the longest total length of two fish (Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, and Skipjack). Honors went to Marcus Montalvo (53 1/8"), Mike Montalvo (52"), and Bill Shire (51"). Right behind was Jim Carey (50"). Abraham Benavidez caught a 52" limit, but didn't make the weigh in. He said he would show up again next time and would watch the clock.
I think fun was had by all and…Continue

I know we Texans are proud of our redfish, but dang, Louisiana has it going on. I was lucky enough to have a client take me, on his dime, to fish with him in NOLA. It was a quick trip from here in DFW - flying in late Sunday, fishing all day yesterday, and flying back to Dallas on the redeye this morning. He's a ad agency owner, and photographer, so this was a photo heavy trip. Full report will appear on my site first, but I did manage to snag a fancy fly from Uptown Anglers that Rey Ramirez…Continue

This spring the Laguna Madre Fly Tyers will hold their third One Fly Tournament on Sunday, March 4, 2012. The venue, of course, are the inshore fishing grounds of the Lower Laguna Madre from South Bay to the landcut north of Port Mansfield.
A maximum of three flies from a single fly pattern (e.g., clouser, deceiver, seaducer). I’m trying to decide whether it will be the “No Name Fly” or the “Whisper…Continue

Had some good luck with friend Immanuel Salas - on Wolf Island last Black Friday. The Black Friday Fly Fish has become an annual event where I find someplace to "escape" to and work off the drowsy effects of turkey from the day before.

I'm currently in New Jerzy and then head back to Texas via Virginia and Lake Buchanan. How does having a fly tying session on July 19th sound to everyone? I'll wait to hear from members and then work on finding a location.
Let me know by responding to this post.
My schedule in July is horrendous. I'll be out of town for most of it. If anything, we may schedule a fly tying class or a tournament toward the end of the month. We had talked about another one fly or kids' tournament.
Think about it and let me know what you really want to do then.

I don't have a location or theme for the next fly tying session. I'll check this week with Larry or Mark and see where we want to have it. We had a great time at both locations and the events were well attended, even though, the last one worried me a bit.
I'll keep you posted.

The focus of this class was to create flies that would work in the wind. The two flies that were tied met this requirement. Jack Keller taught us how to tie a simple, uncomplicated fly made of beads and a tail material. I think I saw all types of tailing material. (e.g., marabous, crystal flash, flashabou, flex floss) The bead was coated with either epoxy, buggaboo, or tuffeye material. I don't think one fly looked the same. We tied another using a tungsten bead for a head. A little more…Continue
