Texas Hill Country Fly Fishing

The best way I can think of to take a break from lots of saltwater fishing is to go freshwater fishing! Hope you enjoy watching my first real Texas Hill Country Fly Fishing experience. I got four new species on fly. Guadalupe Bass, Spotted Bass, Sun Perch, and Bluegill. Everyone in the crew caught their first species of something on fly. Our Host Levi got his first Rio Grande Perch on fly! Special congrats to my nephew Hunter and his buddy Robby on picking up fly rods earlier this year and not looking back.

Texas Snook #3

My third Texas Snook

Targeted Snook today. Casted the fly rod most of the day with no luck on Snook. We tried one last spot, and because I was working against an increasingly strong wind, I switched to a spinning rod with a Zman soft plastic lure. We got the targeted species to hand, plus some other fish.

Fishing Trip Winner

Congrats to the 2020 Nueces County 4H Trap and Skeet Fishing Trip Winner. Bays and Clays donated the trip which was part of the bucket raffle to benefit the Nueces County 4H Trap and Skeet Team. The raffle was part of the fundraising at the annual shotgun competition including Trap, Skeet, and Sporting Clays.

The lucky winner is pictured with a black drum caught using shrimp and speckled trout using artificial lures. This was his first experience fishing with artificial lures.

Bays and Clays was excited to support the event and will be donating another trip in 2021!
