Trout Fishing in Texas!?

So who knew trout fishing in Texas would be so good. I decided to go fish the Guadalupe river for some trout after we had one of the worst snow storms in recent Texas history. I figured most of the fish like bass and sunfish that I am used to targeting around here would be lethargic after the freeze. However trout are more cold tolerant, so I figured I would try trout fishing on the Guadalupe for the first time since moving to Texas. I have caught a couple trout before on the Guadalupe however never really was targeting them. I had a great time, hooked into quite a few fish. Unfortunately only brought in 1. However I did hook 4 and they were good size. Honestly these fish here fought better than the ones of equal size on the San Juan River. I definitely will be coming back to trout fish here next year no question.

The rod I used was the 23PS rod from Risenfly. Its a great rod, worth every single penny and more of the $289 cost. Best of all, you can get 15% off when using my discount code. Type in McFly at checkout when you buy anything from It is a one time code, but after that purchase they will allow you to sign up to their mailer and they send out coupons regularly. You will love everything they sell as it is all very high quality for the money. Definitely McFly Angler approved! I mean, its all I fish with really!

A few other things I used on this trip are listed below. Go check them out as well.

Also know I am licensed to be able to sell flies. So if you guys have any fly needs just let me know. Its easy to find my email on my website in the about section. Just shoot me an email with your needs and I can tie them up for you. I custom tie flies, so anything you need just let me know. I tie to order so give me some lead time to be able to get these completed for you. I try to keep my costs as low as possible. Generally they are right in the range of a normal fly shop, give or take a little. Of course mine are very high quality.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
