Had the privilege and honor to fish with Jamie aka J-Moe. Jamie came down from his home town of Brenham and we fished the whole day on the Cibolo Creek. We fished from 7:30am till 6:30pm and caught over 100 fish. The bite was AWESOME and the creek was in GREAT condition. Over half the fish were good size including the numerous Redbreast and Rios that were over a half pound. Jamie fished his flyrod the whole time switching out flies a bunch. I was using my trusty ultra light spinning rig with worms and a bottom technique. The HIGHLIGHT of the trip was Jamie's two record flyrod fish. The very first cast of the morning he nailed a Redbreast with a certified weight of .54 Lbs. He then finished the day catching his last fish which was a TROPHY 9.25" Rio with a certified weight of .86 Lbs. The Rio will also earn Jamie a Big Fish Award! Jamie also lost a very nice Green Sunfish that possibly could have been a State record for flyrod. The fish got off just as he was starting to take it out of the water. Jamie also caught a nice Large Mouth Bass that was a little over 2 pounds. Nice Bluegill,Hybrids,and Longear rounded out the catch. Fish were holding by currents next to brush piles by the bank. Fish were released to fight again. We took a lunch break and had a great lunch at Taqueria Chapala Jalisco Restaurant located in Universal City.Paper work will be sent to Texas Parks&Wildlife for the two record fish. Fishing with a good friend and a MASTER FLYROD ANGLER! It just don't get any better! fish

That's what I love about you Chuck. Always praising, complimenting and encouraging your friends and fellow fisherman. Your incredible hospitality and the effort you put into helping other fisherman be successful is to be admired.

What an absolutely incredible day of fishing. One of the greatest ever thumb

There was one point during the day that I found a colony of redbreast that were all in that half pound range. They were against the bank in the roots under the branches of a small tree. It was a moment that really makes fly fishing special. The joy of target casting a popper into a difficult spot and then seeing a fish smash it. Even when they miss it your heart speeds up. I stood in that one spot and caught about 20 before moving on.

I learned an incredible amount about Rios as well. I learned I need to fish them more like I do a bluegill vs. what I do for sunfish. Slightly smaller flies, but in general, the same patterns. Briminators and slightly smaller poppers worked the best for me, just like they do for bluegill.

I also got to tour the Dewey estate and see all those magnificent fish mounts, awards and other memorabilia associated with the 289 records Chuck holds. Absolutely incredible!!!!!!

Thanks Chuck, I can't wait for the next time.

Yes, I tried a lot of different subsurface flies. I caught a few on briminators only.

Yellow popper
