Published on May 31, 2013, by in lady bird lake.

Sunfish (aka Panfish) are hot and sexy, especially in late spring and early summer!  When the water warms up to the high 60’s, they begin their spawning ritual, which can last through out the summer, depending on the species.  They get really aggressive, and are extremely colorful as well.  The Texas record “Redear Sunfish” came

Fly Fishing Mexico

Published on April 4, 2013, by in Fly Fishing Mexico.

Fly Fishing Mexico may seem kind of risky these days, but what isn’t?  Travel smart, plan well, use reputable outfitters – and your trip should be “hitch” free.  This was the case a few years ago when I traveled with “Angling On The Fly” to Cancun.  From Cancun, our escort Beto drove myself and five other
