Default A new way to keep count

I went out to a local lake today to fish for some small bluegills with my 3 weight. I have no idea how many I caught, but I know that I didn't catch 17 fish. In about an hour and a half, I had 17 casts that didn't catch a fish. I didn't bother taking any pictures, because taking the time to get the camera out, take a picture, and put it back away would have meant three fewer fish I would have caught.

In many cases, I literally had a fish on in less than one second after my fly hit the water.

I once caught 17 crappies in 30 minutes under a full moon...about 10:00 pm. I was using a black wooly bugger. I would've caught more, but it took time to put them on the stringer! The moon was bright...I never turned on that coal miners lamp that was riding on my hat that night! The bite was on that night!

I enjoy flyfishing at night...the boats and jet skiers are off the water! It beats those 95 degree days!

I have even caught bluegills after the sun sets...I didn't know they are noctural!
