Talking First warm water fly fishing trip.

My Neighbor Terry bought a kayak and I inflated my pontoon boat and we hit Galla lake in Arkansas this morning and we had a blast. We were the only two people fishing this water shed where gas motors aren't allowed. I must have caught 30 Blue Gill before it got too hot. I was over gunned using my Orvis Trident 8 wt 9'0" rod and the blue gills were hitting a white popper on almost every cast. I probably missed the hook up two out of every three strikes. Terry was using an ultra light spinning rod and different color jigs and he caught a lot of fish including one pretty nice Bass about 13 inches.

A few pictures Terry took while at the lake.
