Merry Christmas

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.

  2. Just found your blog and it kept me sane in a time when all of our water up here in IL is frozen. Good content, keep it up.
