Huge Congratulations to William Atkinson aka 1960Texan for not only catching his very first Rio Grande Cichlid but also getting his first ever Record. Will and I were fishing the Sabinal River and the fish were very active. Will was working the far bank with his Flyrod when he hooked onto a Trophy Size Rio. I looked over to him and saw his five weight flyrod bending and Will fighting the fish. Will got the fish in and it was a very nice Bull Rio (Female). The length of the fish was 9.20" good enough for the pending Rio Grande Cichlid Flyrod Catch&Release Record for the Sabinal River. An olive Wooly Bugger was the fly used. The fish was released. Paper work was completed and sent to the Texas Parks&Wildlife. Again CONGRATULATIONS Will on your Record Rio! Rounding out the trip were some nice Bluegill,Redbreast,another trophy Rio,a couple of Channel Catfish,and some small bass. We finished the trip with a super lunch at the R-BBQ located in beautiful downtown Sabinal. Watching a SUPER ANGLER catching his first Record Rio on the fly and spending the day fishing with a friend. It just don't get any better. fish

Well done. I caught my first Rio on a woolly bugger too. My first wasn't a trophy though.

Thanks Jamie! When we measured it I had this feeling that the record would stand until the next time you fished the Sabinal, or until Chuck takes up the fly rod! smile

Great fish, congrats thumb

Chuck, it's very cool that you take the time to help us submit records to the State.
I certainly appreciate all the effort you put in to the process smile

It adds extra excitement to the day when fishing with you.

Andrew. Watching you fly anglers fighting a nice fish. "It just don't get any better"! fish


Side Note: There are a lot of open fly rod records out there along with spinning tackle records also. I am always happy to help out anyone who is interested in getting a record fish. thumb
