Cowtown Kid on the River

We recently had an opportunity to fish with a fellow Fort Worthian, a gentleman named Rick Irving, who despite his 63 years of age, still gets out to kayak fish more often than me. The soft-spoken real estate broker is known on the local fishing forums as the Cowtown Kid, and I’m not sure if he got that name in sarcastic deference to his grandfatherly looks or from the fact that he’s only been kayak fishing for a few years.

POTD-6-4-13 Frio RiverJosh Walker of Dallas fly fishes the Frio River at Garner State Park in Southwest Texas. The 1,800-acre park, known for its clear water, rugged hiking tails and rustic cabins, is a little off the beaten path (about halfway between San Antonio and Del Rio, Texas) but with 10 acres of swimming pool clear river frontage, it’s probably worth the drive. The photo, taken by Austin photographer Dustin Doskocil, was first published on his photo blog (http://dustindoskocil.blogspot.com/) along with many other great photos from a trip with some friends down to the Padre Island National Seashore. When an incoming storm threatened their coastal camping, they retreated to Garner State Park to finish their trip. I call that a hell of a Plan B.
