I did put it up there as a joke, but sometimes I actually do catch record fish on flies someone sent me. Last summer I caught a state record bowfin, 7.25#, on a chenille worm fly that a kid who just started college at UT Tyler sent me. Do you think he was excited!! I was more excited for him than I was with a new state record.

Last year I also caught a state fly fishing private waters record redear sunfish at 11" - 1.3# on a purple and gold LSU clouser that a friend fo mine tied for me. He went to the University of Arkansas and I went to LSU. So here is a guy originally from New Orleans and who went to LSU, who catches a Texas State Record fish on an LSU fly tied by an Arkansas Razorback. We got three states covered by that one, lol.
