Hurricane Harvey Makes Mush of Today’s Texas Fly Fishing Report

| August 25, 2017 | 0 Comments

Conditions for Texas fishing and fly fishing in limbo as Hurricane Harvey does it’s dance on the Texas Gulf Coast.

Thanks for tuning in to the original Texas Fly Fishing Video Report! This week, we’re all getting a forced break in the action, as we watch and wait for Hurricane Harvey to make landfall. This one is a rainmaker. The talking weatherheads are all drawing straws to see who has to stand out there in the wind and rain (so silly and goofy). Then, they all line up in the same location, about ten feet apart (“are you in my shot?”), and act like they are planting a flag on the moon. When the intensity is all over, they pack up and leave, budgets shot, and tweeting their heroic activities in the van on the way home.

Below are a few of my images from Hurricane Ike, after all the talking heads had left. Those were the days when I had plenty of time ($) to do a story the right way – long form. By the time I can take this amount of time to do a story (Hurricane Ike) ever again? I will probably either be too old, or dead.

Watcher Wednesday What Are You Watching?

| July 12, 2017 | 0 Comments

Here’s your watcher Wednesday video this week

Maybe I should ask? What are you watching these days? It’s such a wide open question. I know those of you readers with kids a certain age are probably sick and tired of Thomas & Friends, and my renewed addiction to news is just about over and done with. We are even about to cut the cable in this household.

One of my favorite “TV” shows and “TV” personalities is Flats Class‘ Captain C.A. Richardson. This guy is straight business, and it seems like he shares everything he knows, about what he’s doing, in each episode. Good stuff. I e mailed him to see if there is somewhere I can go to find his shows online.

TV is in a weird transitional time, isn’t it? That applies to cable TV especially. We are about to cut the cable around here, and just rely on the internet sources for entertainment and news. There will be some holes in our watching, but is there any doubt that we’ll all be able to get our TV from the internet within a few years?

Right now, in my search to find a source for Flats Class, I stumbled onto this site Waypoint TV.  And as I dug a little deeper? B I N G O! Click this link – Flats Class on Waypoint TV. And that’s your video find of the week! Thanks for reading again, and let me know what you find to watch – sharing is fun!

 

Friday Fly Fishing Report – Where it All Comes From

| July 7, 2017 | 1 Comment

I bet you wonder where all this information comes from.

WHERE THE INFORMATION COMES FROM

When it comes to assembling the (sometimes weekly!) Texas Fly Fishing Reports, I glean information, that isn’t FIRST HAND, from a few specific resources. These resources are NOT fly fishing based, and I typically don’t report on common knowledge that is found on forums because it can be so hyperbolic that the real value is very low – to hardcore fly fishers. What I simply try to do is assemble real information together in a format that hits the highs and ignores the rest.

RESOURCES FOR YOUR OWN REPORTS

First – Texas Fishing Reports provided by TPWD. You can have e-mail alerts sent to your phone as soon as they hit the TPWD site.

Second – Fox Sports Southwest on Fox Sports Outdoors on my cable TV (which is soon to be disconnected), early Saturday morning.

Third – Texas Insider Fishing Report, again on Fox Sports SW.

HINT – You can watch Fox Sports SW on your computer. Texas Insider is at www.texasinsiderfishingreport.com

THIS WEEK – Consider Sam Rayburn for bass. If you know that lake, it is rising near the top of the National List for bass lakes. The heat is going to start taking a toll on all our freshwater pursuits now.

SALT – Rollover Pass on the BP sounds to be the place up north, and Port O is shaping up mid-Texas Gulf Coast. Apparently, smacks are still up for grabs on the Port Aransas jetties as well. Down south? It’s South Padre Island time! Sure the land cut (inside bay side) is still going on solid, and fish are a bit deeper heading into the cuts and channel, but South Padre seems to have the best opportunities for FLY FISHING on salt right now.

It’s Watcher Wednesday! Are You Tired of Watching Yet?

Going with the flow of video somehow gets easier

 

This is the LONG VERSION of a trailer that was supposed to be a short version. I guess I am better doing long than short videos. Still experimenting …


NOW THIS IS a good video. Yes, slow-mo overkill, but well done. (Maybe I should move there, and do this “reporting?” After all, we are “Texas” Fly Casters, right?)

Somehow, the ability to share via video seems to lead to more ideas and more topics – topics that I hope interest your eyes in watching. What is so funny to me is how primitive things seem to look – video quality, recording quality, editing, audio quality – in such a short time.

I’m also looking to be more “up front” with the Fly Nation, having tried live events, and taken a look at Snapchat. It looks like it may be time to get on board with Snapchat based on the sheer numbers of young people who are now using it. When I asked one of those young people last night, “Why Snapchat?” He said, “Because it’s easy. It’s the easiest way to do this.” The Google-Hangout thing is still so cumbersome, kind of, like, for OLD PEOPLE?

I know you couldn’t tell by looking, but I do like easy technology … stay tuned.
