Few people think of water when they think of Texas. Even in this age of information, the perception of Texas as a dusty land that only cowboys and rattlesnakes can love, remains firmly fixed. But Texas has much to offer both freshwater and saltwater fly-fishermen.
Texas reservoirs are famous for their big bass and sunfish; Texas Hill Country hosts spring-fed streams; on the vast Texas flats you can stalk red drum, seatrout, founder and more; in Texas' surf you will find tarpon, snook, jack crevalle; and beyond the surfline you can target tuna, sharks, barracuda, billfish, and many other species that live in the Gulf of Mexico.
Texas Blue-Ribbon Fly-Fishing is a comprehensive guide to fly-fishing the state's fresh and salt waters. Covering the seven regions in Texas, Hicks discusses fresh- and saltwater fish species; the waters you'll find within each region; coastal history; Texas weather; dangers such as flash floods, snakes, alligators, scorpions, fire ants; and the most productive flies for fishing Texas; varied waters.
Everything's bigger in Texas-including their fish and the excitement you'll have catching them!
