When talking about the Bosque River, I have always pronounced it "Boskee". I have heard it pronounced "Bosk" as well. The other day I heard somebody refer to it as the "Bowquay" River. I said "Where in the hell is the Bowquay River?"

Which is correct?

COMING SOON! .. THE STICKLE HOOK " the stay level sickle hook". sits level in the water with all knots.! Provides better hook sets and more natural jigging motion. No more adjusting the knot, gluing , or tying loop knots that cause the hook point to tangle in the loop, or worse knick the line.. The jighook that will make all others obsolete !

There are a lot of pecan (pa-kahn') trees in Bosque (Bos'-kee) County and it is west of Mexia (Ma-hay'-a) Texas.
