Went and stayed in Blanco, TX this weekend to visit some friends.
I managed to sneak away for a bit to hit the river with my fly rod.
New species for me.
Rio Grande Cichlid I believe (correct me if I am wrong).
I saw this guy sitting beneath a large rock so I casted my Hopper right to him to see if he would take it. It took a couple of tries but he came up and nailed it at the surface. There is very little that is more exciting to me than watching a fish come to the surface to strike.
Sorry about the bad angle. He decided to flop right as I took the picture.
Also managed to pull this guy out along with a few REALLY little blue gill that I didn't get any pictures of.
Sunday was much slower I was only able to get 1 blue gill to take a fly and it got hot pretty quick. So I called it a day.
I had never fished the Blanco River before but it was a great time.
