    Default 6/11: Red on a clouser

    I slept in Sunday. Wandered down to the boat stall in the rain. Tinkered with the boat; organized my tackle. I put the boat in about 10. There was a flyfishing and skiff meet up in Bayou Vista I planned to attend.

    I went out in Jones and messed around and then into the DC looking for any decent water (there was none). While drifting along chunking soft plastics I kept hearing some bait crashing behind me. I saw some reds cruising the shoreline, eased over toward them and was fortunate enough to have one come close enough for a cast. I picked up the fly rod and laid out a flying mess of fly line, leader and fly. I got just enough of the heap out in front of the red to mend up the mess and roll cast the fly a bit closer. A couple of strips and he took it.

    I went to the fly fishing meet up and passed a good time. 8 or 10 skiffs, rod demos and a casting clinic by Steve Soule.

    I got home before the rain came back.

    Beautiful red, got to love those blue tails. Looks like one of the pieces my wife sales.

    JERKY,
    How do you like that large arbor reel? Why that instead of regular?
