Monday Flies By

Stuff Happens

I was so busy yesterday that I forgot why I was too busy to post the Monday Morning Sidewalk on Time! It was because we were seeing off family to head back to the Bayou City. SO here you go …

Monday night lights are on the sidewalk as the sun has set on another Monday. 

Father’s Day was a busy one, and if you have, or are a father? I hope you had a good one, and maybe got some fly fishing goodies for Father’s Day. I have an Academy card burning a hole in my pocket right now.

We had another write-off weekend for fly fishing around here, as Saturday was unstable and Sunday was rainy all day. It feels more like Seattle than North Texas these days. And we are expecting more rain – sooner, rather than later. Heck of a deal.

Some areas of the Texas Gulf Coast are experiencing a glut of fresh water now, and it is having an effect on fishing opportunities. It looks like I will get a taste in about a month. The early plan is to help a friend break in his poling skiff and provide some ballast on the bow.

I’ve been getting some interesting inquiries lately – people traveling across Country and through Texas, people looking for rod socks and people cashing in on a two-for-one guide trip offer I had going over the weekend.

The next couple of days will tell the tale for the rest of June’s fly fishing opportunities with carp around here. Rain, or no rain, I will have to start pushing the envelope a little very soon. We will see …


There is a new boat only carp on fly tournament taking shape at Lake Austin. I will give you what I have, and we can go from there – next time.
