Good to see such Holiday Cheer from the retailers at Sportsman’s Finest. We’re anticipating a list of favorite fly fishing DVD’s any day now from Stacy Lynn, the retail fly shop manager at the Austin store. Lists are already in from Tailwaters Dallas, and Living Waters, Round Rock. There’s no store, but plenty of information available at www.sportsmansfinest.com.

Hello Sportsman’s Finest Customers!
*Happy Holidays! I know you are really busy getting your shopping done, attending holiday parties, and maybe even trying to squeeze in some fishing and shooting, so I am going to keep this brief. (No, really. I promise!)

*Many of you have a Santa that would dearly love to get you something that YOU would dearly love to have…help them out by filling out a Sportsman’s Finest “Wish List”! List all the gear that you would like to see under the tree and leave it with us. Tell your Santa to come see us and we will do the rest!

*Unique and limited edition items you are not going to find other places: Jesse James Reels; Skinny Water Culture clothing and hats; limited edition, artistic reels from Abel and Hatch; and Legend custome knives. These make excellent gifts…and great additions to anyone’s collections!

*Our last Tuesday Night Fly Tying Class for 2012 is next Tuesday, December 18th. We will be cooking fajitas and conducting the drawings for the End of the Year prizes! If you have attended at least one tying class this year then your name is in the hat for the winnings!

One More Time – Broadband This Time

| September 4, 2012 | 0 Comments

This is an OLD video, but I guess it has now been released for the first time for embedding in sites. It says something about “broadband” now, which I guess means the quality is better. Anyway, skip it if you’ve seen it, and enjoy it if you haven’t. And if you have any suggestions for future episodes (who knows when that is?), feel free to add comments / requests.

Texas Tech and TPWD Conduct Four Month Survey on Hill Country Rivers

| August 23, 2012 | 0 Comments

Texas Parks and Wildlife Department’s Inland Fisheries Division is partnering with Texas Tech University’s Department of Biological Sciences and the TTU Llano River Field Station to conduct a four-month survey of anglers who fish Texas Hill Country rivers and streams.

The survey will determine recreational angling effort (time spent fishing), gather information on angler attitudes and opinions, and evaluate the economic impact of angling in the region’s rivers and streams.

Anglers who have fished a Hill Country river or stream during the past 12 months are encouraged to participate in the survey. Information from anglers who target Guadalupe bass, the state fish of Texas, is of special interest. TPWD is engaged in an ongoing effort to restore and preserve Guadalupe bass populations in the Llano, Blanco, Pedernales, San Antonio and James River watersheds.

Anglers can participate in the survey through a link on the TPWD fishing web page http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/fishboat/fish/ or directly at https://www.research.net/s/HillCountryFishingSurvey. Additional river and stream fishing-related web sites will also be asked to add a link to the survey in the near future. As an incentive to participate, anglers completing the survey will be eligible to win either a spinning rod and reel combo ($200 value) or fly rod and reel combo ($300 value). A drawing for the two rod and reel prizes will be held in January 2013. The survey will take about 15 minutes to complete and results are completely confidential. All results will be aggregated so individual responses will be anonymous.

Counties of interest include Bandera, Bexar, Blanco, Brown, Burnet, Comal, Coleman, Edwards, Gillespie, Hays, Kimble, Kendall, Kerr, Lampasas, Llano, Mason, McCulloch, Medina, Menard, Mills, Real, San Saba, Travis, and Williamson. Major rivers include the Blanco, Colorado, Guadalupe, James, Llano (North and South forks), Medina, Pedernales, San Antonio, San Marcos and San Saba. A map showing the entire area of interest is included at the beginning of the survey. Anglers fishing smaller rivers, streams and creeks within the area of interest, are also encouraged to participate.

Information gathered from the survey will ultimately be used to help guide future habitat restoration efforts, efforts to expand fishing access, and other actions by TPWD to enhance fishing opportunities in rivers and streams in the Hill Country and throughout Texas.
