Yesterday was another great day in the Texas Hill Country. I fished the Guadalupe with a few friends, and we had an absolute blast. A front had moved in the night before so the fishing was a little off kilter at first. The wind stayed strong throughout the day, but when the sun eased up, the fishing really turned on for us.
All the credit goes to Banning who persevered through our dry spell and ended our team slump in a blaze of glory. Apparently when he starts to catch fish, there’s just no stopping him.
I had a couple of small connections, but at the end of the day I finally caught up with a fat & feisty rainbow that really gave me a run for my money. But eventually I got him all the way to the net and then merrily on his way.
Man, it was a nice fish.
Afterwards we grabbed the crew from Gruene Outfitters and walked over to Gruene Hall for some live honkytonk music and cold beer. We shared fishing stories and skinny dipping stories and basically laughed until we cried. All in all, it was a damn good way to spend a Tuesday…rainbow trout, plenty of sunshine, good people, Ernest Tubb cover songs, and Texas beer.
Somebody better pinch me.
