I, along with TapDancingKungFuMaster had the pleasure of joining MeSoHorny and a couple non-Shagsters on the Devil's River last weekend for a four day trip.
Good times were had by all, and much was learned from the fly fishing master of the universe. Here's our trip report so to speak.
Just after leaving Baker's crossing:
My first bass (I broke my foot a week before leaving, and was henceforth known as Gimpy or Robofoot) Those lillypads were gold. I think I caught a fish every time there was a large group of them:
Meso getting his first crack at bass in about a year after slaughtering the trout back home (his buddy Dom is in the back of the boat, hell of a great guy):
Lunch break with Meso (standing) and my new favorite Aggie Jeff (sitting):
I think the Derka Dog has some competition:
The exit of one of the 1 million reed jungles:
One of Tap's first day catches:
First night camp (We somehow missed the island despite a 30 mph head wind, and went several miles past, so had to do a little tresspassing right after sunset. They'll never know we were there):
I'd say the water is just about as clear as the south pacific. Looks like somebody just turned the faucet on and filled up a giant limestone pool. There was actually more trash in the pool at the hotel afterwards than I saw in 4 days on the river:
