This is the current issue of Southwest Fly Fishing. From what I hear, there is an excellent article by Steve Probasco who fishes for bass in the shadows of downtown Austin with local guides Kevin Stubbs and Banning Collins. I can literally see the window of my old office in this cover shot. It’s a great view of downtown Austin and Town Lake.
Although Town Lake is now called Lady Bird Lake. And the Congress Bridge is now called Governor Ann Richards Bridge.
Given these particular area tributes, I think they needed a woman on this outing, don’t you? Perhaps it’s not very ladylike but next time I think I will just invite myself along. Or paddle by in a pink kayak singing a Lucinda Williams song. Loudly.
You know, just doing my part to Keep Austin Weird.
All joking aside I look forward to getting my hands on the actual story. It’s always fun to hear visitors bragging about your hometown and nice to see good people featured like my buddy Banning.
If you see a copy on your local magazine stand be sure to check it out. And as always….
