Went to a local lake Saturday looking for Trout. I was fishing shallow in about 5 feet of water. Noticed the grass moving and a lot of rolling. I was using Allen AST 9'6 wt loaded with Intermediate line and 6 lb P-Line fluorocarbon. Fly was a #12 Midnight Fire. I cast out about 50' aiming for the weeds and just turned to start kicking for open water.
I thought I was snagged till that snag took off.
Because of all the grass and the strength of this fish it did take me around 20 minutes of turn and reeling then runs. Not one of the bigger ones I have caught but it had shoulders. My hubby was videoing and got some good footage on his phone, I just don't know how to post those. I asked him to please net this guy as I was afraid I could not handle the weight in the net which would be full! and the rod.
Not sure if this video works but here is the landing

Here it is:

Nice fish Joni!

I took a guy out today...horrible conditions, but he stuck some fish. I got one decent chance amid the clouds, made it count:

I pass by a small town reservoir on my way home from work everyday. Until recently, I didn't think it would be a good spot for fly fishing, as there is a steep stone embankment all the way around, and little backcast room in many areas. I finally gave it a shot the other day, and am glad I did. Been there a few times now so far and have caught bluegill, bass, perch, and crappie. There are also lots of carp in there I hear, and some over 65lbs. If you go on a warm day you will see many people with multiple surf casting rods on holders waiting for carp. An odd site to see at a reservoir that's about 100 yards wide and 200 yards long. Here's 2 fish from yesterday, including a nice bass which was a blast on my 2wt.
