Living Waters Fly Shop Offers Full Schedule

| May 2, 2012

Publisher’s Note – I wish all the Mom-and-Pops had schedules like Living Waters located in Round Rock, Texas! Chris Johnson is building a base the right way, with knowledge, action and adventures.

“Things have been busy at the fly shop and we have been more than pleased with all of the fishing reports that have been coming in from our guide trips and customers alike. If you haven’t been out to Brushy Creek lately, then you are missing out on some of the best fishing it has to offer! We have been catching a variety of different species throughout the hill country, in fact in the last month we have brought over a dozen different species to hand with shots at many others. If you want to see a fishing report for a certain body of water that we guide, simply visit our website at www.livingwatersflyfishing.com, and click on the fishing reports in the bottom right corner of the homepage. Below is a listing of our upcoming events for the rest of April and all of May. As always, if you have any questions, just call the fly shop at (512) 828-FISH. Take care and God Bless! — Chris Johnson

5/12, Saturday — 10:00 A.M. — Alaska Presentation by Rus Schwausch of EPIC Angling & Adventure
Alaska Peninsula Fly Fishing Camps
Owner Rus Schwausch and head guide Ted Mendrek of EPIC Angling & Adventure will present two remote Alaska Peninsula operations. Alaska Wilderness SAFARI, the more sophisticated option, is written up in the book Fifty Places to Fly Fish Before You Die as “arguably the most isolated coastal fishing camp in Alaska and one of the best places in the world to pursue chrome-bright, ocean-fresh salmon.” And there’s a lot more to do than just fish – daily wildlife viewing, hiking, waterfalls to see and tide pools to explore. Alaska Wilderness OUTPOST is a rustic, early season camp offering excellent small stream fishing for rainbow trout, grayling, king salmon and more. Short on frills, this program is for the die-hard fisherman focused on quality fishing rather than extraneous amenities.
You can find out more about these operations at www.epicanglingadventure.com.

The 4th Thursday meeting is held on the water at a local fishery of our choosing that will be announced in advance. (once the time change in the fall shortens the days, instead of meeting on the water, we will meet in the shop for tying/fishing clinics until spring rolls back around with longer daylight hours). This time is designed to help increase your general knowledge base of certain fishing techniques and situations. In May, we will meet at Memorial Park in Round Rock (Brushy Creek) to fish at 6:00p.m. and will fish until dark-thirtyish. Matt and Chris will be available to help “guide” anyone who desires coaching in fly selection, presentation, and sight fishing. This is designed to be an on-the-water learning experience and we hope to see you there! If there are any questions, please call the shop at (512) 828-FISH.
