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.

Great stuff!!! Yes, that's a Rio, and a very nice one. Glad to hear you got it to take a popper.
