Texas Insider Fishing Report on YouTube

This show – Texas Insider Fishing Report – is one of the sources I go to regularly. One fly fisher I was talking to, and I mentioned this in one of my reports, said these shows always put the best spin on things. I can tell you, from yesterday’s day on Grapevine Lake, that his statement is absolutely true.

Forget Miss Florida you cads – she’s getting married, or just got married this week … Some episodes run way too long on offshore fishing, but these are Florida guys doing this show and a Florida show, and there’s more crossover (running the same segment) between offshore Florida and offshore Texas — saving them production time. They are in Florida and have better things to do than make a show!

With the cost of cable TV in our hometown eating away at our broken income (not fixed for sure), I am still searching for all the outlets – on YouTube, Vimeo, and through internet connection to those sources, network TV and other sports channels (Texas Ranger baseball live) – to toss the cable box out on the street and run over it with my car (and boat attached).

Be Kind Rewind to Last Week’s Texas Fly Fishing Report

Texas Fly Fishing Report 081107

This week’s report is almost a carbon copy of last week’s report. Variables? Well, heck yes there are always the variables. Around here, in a year of radical variables, the weather says one thing and does another. The quote I keep going back to from incoming texts and e mails is, “strange year.” I completely agree.

I was just out at Ray Roberts an hour ago, about 11 miles north of Denton, Texas, and there was a cool north wind blowing in, while back at the casa now? It is probably eight degrees warmer and muggy. In a state as big as Texas, you actually may not know UNTIL you go – right now!

Besides checking the weekly FISHING report at TPWD (click that it’s a link silly), I have been looking at a couple of other things that tell me:

Thanks for reading! Have a great weekend, or at least a weekend that’s better than mine! And we will be back here early and bright on Monday morning for the ever popular Monday Morning Sidewalk. 

Fish on …

Behind the fly fishing videos scene?


I thought this was worthy of all the fly fishing “production companies” that are running around these days. Some the stuff they produce is about this funny – such a serious topic.

There won’t be any Friday Fly Fishing Report – just watch last weeks, because this week is virtually the same as last week, and the heat is off the charts at the Fly Bar (the world famous set for the videos).
