  • Found a Work Around for the New Hat…

    Found a work around for the new hat. Had forgotten the Trout in the first hat courtesy of your’s truly forgetting it. So, ended up with two hats – a right one and a wrong one. Not wanting to let the wrong one sit on the shelf, decided to embroider “Trout” on the hat…. [read more]

    By / December 5, 2016 / Rainbow Trout

    Made it to Heritage Park – one of the three ponds in Flower Mound that were stocked with trout. Rain let up, so had to make the run down the Tollway for a go at Rainbow Trout. New place… so new that Google Maps does not show the pond. It looks like it is still… [read more]

  • Steady Action at Bethany!

    By / March 16, 2016 / Fishing

    Shifting our focus to warm water fishing. Start things off with Bethany Lakes yesterday for a quick trip. Wanted to see a Bass Fishing Fly we made would get the Bass to take. As it turned out, only had a few light strikes with it. Likely need to scale it down some as the Bass were… [read more]

  • Three On the Switch Rod This Round!

    By / February 15, 2016 / Fishing

    Quick trip to Bethany for some Switch Rod casting practice this evening. Managed three Bass that went for a White Near Deere this round. Similar to the “swing the rod slowly retrieve” that worked on the trout at Waterloo in Denison and at Frisco Commons, it worked on the Bass at Bethany as well! Need… [read more]

  • Frisco for More Trout!

    By / February 15, 2016 / Frisco Commons

    Fished Frisco Commons Sunday for another chance at Rainbow Trout.

Steady action with strikes typically happening as we switched from a short pull and retrieve to a… [read more]

  • Out and About at Bethany with the Two Weight

    By / December 31, 2015 / Bass, Bethany Lakes, Bluegill

    Stopped by Bethany Lakes yesterday to check out things. Water level is up from the recent rains. Looked like the trout bite was slow; did see some folks fishing but no hook ups while we were there. Tried different spots to see if anything would take our fishing fly. Been liking the Two Weight Fly… [read more]
