Had some time to burn, so off for a quick get away "mini-vacation" to Broken Bow, Oklahoma for some wine tasting, fishing... and overall chillin and grillin! Stayed at a really nice cabin in the Hochatown area, able to try a few wines and pick up a bottle or two at three wineries, grilled some tasty sausage and steaks, and even wet a line and caught a Bluegill. No trout this round but no worries... learned a few things this round. Of note, the Cold Hole Bridge is repaired and there is a parking lot now! Broken Bow Get Away #brokenbow #beaversbend

Looks like a nice relaxing get away and fishing trip.  The cabin looked like a very clean unit with all the amenities you would need for a short vacation.  Do you have a contact for the cabin rental?

Was a relaxing trip... cabin was managed by Heartpine Hollow Cabins. Julie is the contact person on their website.

Thanks for the contact information.  Looking at their website, there are a good number of cabins to choose from.  All of them look relatively new and very clean.

Tied Guadalupana Fishing Flies for the upcoming Fishing Fly Give Away. Giving two away and tied an extra one to "test" at the local pond. Caught one Sunfish, then lost it... user error, should have made sure the knot was secure.

Fished a Foam Damsel Fly and caught more little Bluegill, then broke off on a fish... line was frayed. While looking for another fishing fly in the fly box, found another Guadalupana. Tied it on in short order and caught more Bluegill and a little Bass.

Fun time fishing the 4wt Redington Pursuit Fly Rod. Not used it for some time. Dusted it off along with the Ross Flystart 2 Reel that we picked up from Amazon several years ago. Reel came with backing and a Weight Forward 4wt line. Fly Fishing with the PMC Emerger!


...decided to demo the Redington Pursuit 4wt - an 8 foot rod we picked up several years ago. Noticed on the Texas Fishing Forum a question about casting 50 feet or so with a 5wt 8 foot fly rod.  Did not have an 8 foot in a 5 weight. But, did have this one in a 4 weight. Able to get 50 feet plus with a double haul cast,... even caught a fish while doing the demo! Fun stuff!

Made it to Kroger Park on the commute home. Always good to have a fishing rod handy in the little pickup for times when traffic is slow and yours truly prefers to fish rather than drive in stop and go traffic.

This round used the Foam Grasshopper with the TFO 6wt Flyrod coupled with the Echo Ion 6/7wt flyreel.

Reel has the OPST Commando Head and the coated monofilament running line. Made for ease of casting and distance when needed.

Pond was clobbered with lots of green stuff but did catch a few bluegill and bass. Fun stuff!

Fly Fishing with the Foam Grasshopper, TFO 6wt Flyrod, and Echo Ion Flyreel! #flyfishing

TBT time Friday evening fishing an old favorite of ours... the Betts Bream Getter. It's the fishing fly we derived the Foam Spider pattern we tie. This one we picked up at Cabelas but unfourtunately lost it to a snag. Will have to either buy another or tie one using the kit we bought last year from Waspi! No worries though had a great time fishing it for Bass and Bluegill. Posted key tips when fishing the Betts Bream Getter on our blog and YouTube Channel!

On the commute, did a little pond hopping the past few days. Was a tough go but did manage to catch a fish or two! First pond was Crowley Park Pond in Richardson. Second pond was Plano Downtown Center Pond... not sure about the formal name for it, but this one works for ease of reference. Fly Fishing and Pond Hopping...! #flyfishing
