Welcome to Basin & Range Outdoors

Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat. ~Theodore Roosevelt

Basin & Range Outdoors was created to share the adventures experienced by two brothers in the American West. From the highest alpine terrains to the lowest sonoran deserts we will chronicle the pain and triumph that accompanies all of our outdoor pursuits.

There will be no high-fence hunts, no fly fishing lodges, no streamside caviar and wine breaks. Instead, you can expect cold nights sleeping in the dirt, flat tires on old trucks, and big dreams realized on small budgets. With Basin & Range Outdoors you will find useful reviews of hunting and fly fishing products, techniques, locations, and a general review of our outdoor expeditions on public land.

Another Adventure on the Guadalupe River

I caught a lot of averaged size trout on small flies this last weekend.  I was dredging so deep with my flies that I caught both a catfish and a carp.  Dissappointed that I didn't break the 20" mark but enjoyed myself none the less.  If you can avoid the tubers Sattler, TX is a nice place to wet a fly.
I picked up fish on larger nymphs during the morning and evening but only the tiny chironomids performed during mid-day.
