Another great day on the Colorado, this morning started off fast and furious. Brooklyn hooked probably 10 fish but only got 4 to the boat. I’m surprised we didn’t see the temper, I ended up boating 9 brown before noon. After lunch the weather changed for the worst and the wind kicked up pretty hard and the sky got dark. We boated 4 fish in tough conditions in the afternoon.

Fished Seadrift/Port O’Connor yesterday for the first time in a while. We did pretty well and saw a lot of fish, but man that place is nuts. The number of boats, people anchored in cuts you need to go through, people willing to burn you, airboats running all around you, people cutting In line at the ramp.

It all almost takes the fun out of it. I try to avoid that place but we always do well this time of year. Already cannot wait for Late Fall and Winter when you can fish in peace.

Seadrift during the week is awesome. You won’t catch me launching at Froggies on the weekends though! Charlie’s is even a mess on most weekends.

Yes sir. I wish I still had time to fish during the week without planning vacation. One day.

We waded the Perdenales in the park this weekend. Nothing to brag about fish wise but we had fun with little large mouth and perch. FYI, Cabelas in Buda has the Bighorn rod/reel/line combo on sale right now for 49 bucks.

There is something uniquely satisfying catching river fish vs lake/pond fish.

Congrats!

just a customer service shout out.
I broke a section on my TFO 6wt (minding my own business and a tree branch grabbed it and broke it)

I was going through the Dallas area on Monday and stopped in at their place on Sovereign Row. within 15 minutes they had located a new section, checked out the rod, and had me on the road. $25
Great customer service and warranty,

From a former guide, I’d take that lightly. Cimarron and costillo are both spring driven which yield excellent results when blown out. We had no problem catching fish on small streamer/stone patterns when the water got a bit chocolate

The Cimarron was chocolate milk past maverick today. We went with Taos anglers yesterday. It was a newer guide without any burnadell stories. We did ok but today was slow

Hate that it was slow, how did you like the location? Did you feel like most of it was condition driven?

Great customer service and warranty,
I had a similar experience. Took it to their shop in Dallas and they fixed me right up. And I got a free hat!

Did a half day trip yesterday morning with Chris Jackson from Action Anglers. Hit it just right in between the rain showers. River was flowing good after the rains about 350 cfs. We got 12 rainbows to the net with a couple good ones. Missed/lost more than that. Used triple drops under indicators. Had a great time and talked Texas and Colorado bugs all day with Chris as he is very knowledgeable. He helped explain the river and water for the float trip and gave me some tips as I am self taught. After I started doing what he advised my hookup ratio probably tripled. Great day on the river with one of my best friends and made a new one too. Probably will head back soon for a DIY trip.

Nice! that will be a fun trip. If you're flying into Merida, hit up the giant gentlemans club on the side of the highway and report back. I need my curiosity quenched.
