December Fan of The Month

James Reese


Hey everyone I'm James and I started fly fishing when I was younger and switched almost exclusively while in college. I cut my teeth while fishing the rivers of Central Oregon and got to know the rivers pretty well. I moved to Central Texas 4 years ago and now fish the clear hill country rivers for largemouth bass, Rio grande cichlids, and Guadalupe bass, the state fish of Texas. Funny enough they occupy similar water to trout in rivers so the transition wasn't too difficult. They are a great fighting fish and very pretty. I prefer fishing the San Gabriel River, Llano River, and Brushy Creek over the local lakes. I really enjoy helping new folks learn and enjoy fly fishing in our area.
