I hope veryone had a very merry Christmas. Mine was a blast. Had a good time with the family. I got lots of gifts (who knew I was so good?), one of my favorite of which was some new Simms G4 waders and boots.
So yeah...I needed to test them out.
I left dallas at 5:30am on Sunday and made my way out to Mineral Wells and then on to the hwy16 bridge on the Brazos below PK.
The air was 26 degrees when I slipped into the river...
Yeah...see that dam in the distance? I walked to that. This is what seperates the men from the candyasses. As well as those with common sense.
I met some other fly fishers at the base of the dam and they were really nice folks and I enjoyed chatting with them.
First fish...*looks up* Osprys!
Second fish..hmm...there is a theme here...
Boosh...thats more like it!
Stood here for 3 hours and caught 19 fish, mostly sandbass.
First time to the PK tailrace, first striped bass on the fly, new waders.....
