all,
as some of you know I like to throw some Glass rods and UL and sometimes UL glass :, so nine of us glass geeks from Texas and Oklahoma met up at Mason Texas to fish the Llano River. Somehow we discovered another gem - the upper San Saba River. We had a blast throwing vintage as well as newer glass fly rods and ate way too much.
Day one the fishing on the Llano was marginal since a norther front had rolled in bringing cooler temps and rain in some areas. day two we focused on the San Saba from the town of Menard fishing our way back east. Sunday most of us traveled home, but a few of us fished near the town of Llano with limited success due to another front and stained water.
Here are some photos of the shin dig
camp and food




Day one Llano at white's crossing

I caught a few of the little guys - the Guadalupe Bass




James River


Day 2 on the San Saba- very productive for LMB bass, guads,and sunfish





and one BIG red ear

Chuck,
yes we will be coming back- seems like the last discussion was to fish the Blanco and san marcos rivers.

Sounds like a great time.

One of my favorite weekends of fishing came from the James River off some private land near where you were. Some friends and I rented a ranch for the weekend and not 100 yards away from the house was the absolute healthiest, busiest water I've ever seen. The creek was right in a spot where an ice cold spring met up with warm creek water and man were there a lot of fish in a tiny area. Catfish, cichlids, brim, bass, carp. It was awesome!

Camp cat does NOT appear amused. Of course, a few pics later we see somebody brought their little brown doggy with them. Might explain the cat's bad attitude, lol.

That looks like it was fun. I'm still looking for my first out this year. Between the rain and my J.O.B. it just ain't happened yet.

I have a 6/7 H&I I bought off of Gene last year that I love fishing with. Maybe sometime I can get my act together down and join y'all.

Hi bob,
The photo from the last on is not pulling up correctly and if you go to he sunfish section, you'll see it. It's a beeg red ear. The second to last is a decent green.
