Re: Your biggest fish on a fly?

I don't know how big he was.. but definitely one of the biggest smallies I've ever caught.

Re: small creek with some self-ties last night

Nice fish! I love smallies and the fight they put out no matter how big or small they are. I bet it was even more satisfactory when using your own tied flies!

Even though we got skunked, the river was low, and there was a campfire ban at the time we were there, I can easily say it was a great trip. :thumbsup:

Re: Fellow's 15 year kept bugging Dad to let her row the drift boat for the first tim

That's not as bad as trying to steer away from some fishermen, but instead hitting the rockwall and sandbar on the shore. Thus having to get out of the canoe and push it back into the water.
