Christmas Bay, TX

November 2006

Photo's of Bill Frick and myself fishing at Christmas Bay today. We launched at Earnie Too's. Bill went towards the right and I paddled along the shore to the left. we were trying to sight fish but hadn't seen any action. I saw some very small dimples on the surface and decided to try a cast as I have never cast a spoon on a flyrod before.  Well as I started to strip the fish hit almost immediately this is my first salt water fish on a flyrod.  It was 25 inches long and weighted 5.8 lbs. it was the only fish caught today but we spent over 6 hours having a great time paddling along the sore and just enjoying the place. Many thanks to Bill for coming with me and helping this "novice salt water flyfisher".... Tom
