Had the privilege and the opportunity to fish with two OUTSTANDING Anglers this week. Jamie aka J-Moe and Rick aka Catyakker. Rick was able to meet Jamie for the first time as we fished a South Central Texas creek. Both Rick and Jamie used their fly rods while I used my trusty ultralight with night-crawlers. The creek was in good condition with crystal clear water. We fished from 7am till 12 noon. The bite was consistent. We caught some nice Rios,Bluegill,Redbreast,Longear,Hybrid Sunfish,and a few bass. Jamie was able to add to his record collection with three more new water body records. Jamie caught a 9.50" Rio with a certified weight of .79 lbs. A water body weight,fly-rod weight,and fly-rod catch&release records will be applied for. Congratulations Jamie! You are having a SUPER year! Jamie also fished from his kayak. I was very pleased that Rick was able to meet and fish with Jamie. That made my day. After a morning of fishing we had a great lunch/breakfast at Sammy's Restaurant in beautiful down town Castroville TX. Fishing with two GREAT ANGLERS on a South Texas Creek! It just don't get any better! fish

Super great time...love those Chrystal clear creeks. And meeting J-Moe was extra special after reading all about his exploits on this forum. One heck of a fly fisherman and fly maker. Of course it always makes for a good fishing adventure fishing with Banker. Thanks guys for the outstanding memories. soldier

Thanks, as always, Chuck. It was a great day and I'm glad to finally meet Rick. Rick has been fly fishing for many many more years than me. It was great hearing all his stories about fly fishing different parts of the world, stories about the history of flies and some of the great catches he has had in his life. If he would have been keeping records all his life there wouldn't be any room in the record books for me. grin

Clayton, I caught the record Rio on a fly I call the Crawfish Briminator. I caught another one that was 9.25 inches on a yellow Llano bug. I caught a ton of fish but those were the only 2 over 1/2 lb. Thanks for the congrats.

There were a lot of fish on beds. I was able to get the Rio to take a fly while guarding it's bed with it's smaller mate. I wasn't able to get any of the other species on beds to take a fly. They were too busy chasing off all the other smaller fish.

As always a super post Chuck! As you say fishing with friends is hard to beat! Both J-Moe and Catyakker are on a record role! Great seeing those fly rod records going up! Always nice J-Moe seeing a Rio especially the bigger one taking a fly while guarding a nest. Good job guys. woot



Side Note: What weight fly rods were used? hmmm

Thanks Laker. I never thought about records until I started getting guided by Banker. grin It just gives me a little extra incentive to get out on the water most every day instead of sitting by the TV watching old westerns. Retirement can get boring without something to get off my duff for. I started out using a 5 Wt TFO rod many years ago, then went down to 3 Wt TFO, then a 2 Wt TFO. Now I am stuck on a 2 Wt Glass CGR lined with 3 Wt line to to cast a larger variety of fly sizes. I just love the bend of a Glass rod verses Graphite. Just wish I could justify the cost of Bamboo. cry

That is one sport I wished I could have learned. Never got into fly fishing but it seems that the anglers who do fly fish make it their primary way of fishing. Like you have said Chuck, "Fly fishing is an art"!

Plus #1. Totally agree! As for me I am content in my old ways. Give me an ultralight and a carton of worms and I am one very happy angler! hooked
