Default Golden Bones and Silver Drums

Got out on memorial day and ended up going 3 for 10 on carp, 2 for 2 on drum, and 0 for 5 on gar.

All fish were fantastic fights, but there was one stand out for the day. I spotted two big cruisers about ten feet from me and placed a backstabber right in the middle of them. Out of no where an even bigger carp came racing between them and inhaled the fly - then started running......fast! Before I knew it, all 90' of fly line was gone and I was at least 25 yards into my backing before the reel stopped screaming. As I started reeling the fish spit the hook

I sucked it up and went after one last fish and ended the day on a high. Here are some pics. If you want to read more of the details, I made a ridiculously long story about the day on the blog.
