Judging from the feedback we receive, we seem to be doing it right. CA: The wild and rugged beauty of the Wild Horse Desert, while not for the meek or timid, is some of the most fantastic sight I have ever seen. Mesquite, prickly pear cactus and the occasional oak mottes are scattered along the shoreline. They provide shelter and habitat for local animals such as whitetail deer, javelina, turkey, wild hogs and Nilgai. It is an especially great area for raptors.
Hawks, osprey, kestrels, kites and more are abundant throughout the area. KRSS: Are there any memories that stick out to you the most from being on the water? We stood knee deep on a sandbar at sunrise 15 miles into the bay with 85 of our closest friends and family arriving in 24 boats and said our vows. Our rings were tossed in to us attached to topwaters by two friends. As soon as the ceremony was over, everyone went fishing. CS: I remember family trips during the summer months around the Great Lakes.

CA: Up at least an hour and a half before sunrise to prepare my boat and to make sure my clients are fed a hearty breakfast and have the proper gear for the day. I usually feed our horse and our six dogs and help my wife with whatever she needs to make sure her clients and her boat are ready for a day on the water. A short drive to the public boat ramp less than a mile and then my wife and I usually tag team with each other to help launch our boats.
Preparing the boat and loading the gear for a day of fishing and adventures is next. CA: I am a bit of a history buff. Especially Texas history. The wild shorelines of Baffin Bay are extra special because there will likely be no development of its shorelines during my lifetime. No traffic, no construction or condos, just peaceful and natural scenery. CS: Texas is such a great state and I love the southern hospitality here.
The wild shorelines of Baffin Bay and the relative isolation make it a great place to live. KRSS: What kinds of fishing are you doing out there? CA: We primarily wade fish for trout, redfish, flounder and black drum. Occasionally we will drift fish the flats with conventional tackle or fly rods. Sight-casting in clear water with a fly rod is the most challenging and rewarding way to fish that I can think of.
And the area we fish is some of the best if not the best in Texas. CA: 1. No matter what problems every day life throws at us, when we get on the water and throttle up the boat, they all just seem to fade away. I have lots of talks with the man upstairs when I am on the water and I am always appreciative of his creation and handiwork. Especially his sunrises. Hunting for fish on Baffin Bay while reading the water and making specific casts to structure you know is holding fish and having your ideas pay off.freesapcaricha.gq
Sight casting to cruising or tailing redfish or black drum on the sand in clear ankle deep water and watching the fish eat your lure or fly before you set the hook. Appreciate every moment!

Mixed responses Obviously a skilled writer so very stylishly written. However felt all too often it fell into the role of the stereotyped well heeled gun, perhaps that just my own prejudices.
The occasional political rhetoric was tiresome, although I suppose only to be expected as much of it is journalistic essays. Overall while there were some extremely enjoyable piece the book as whole left me underwhelmed.
