Jerry Hamon, President of the Mariner Sails Kayak Fishing Club and member of the Native Watercraft Pro Staff, guided a small get-together of the Texas Women Fly Fishers on a morning kayak trip. Cody and I chose to spend the night a recently opened campground to make a little adventure of the trip. We met up, loaded up, and headed on down the river. We casted deer hair and topwater flies to eager Largemouth Bass swimming in shade-covered, clear water. We switched to chartreuse and white Clousers and rust-colored Red Asses to land beautiful Stripers, Crappie, Sunfish, and a Gasper Goo. We watched a young, juvenile Bald Eagle watching us. All-in-all, it was a great morning, most especially, because we finally got to fish with our friend, Jerry.
