Cool!! Those Crappie are a BLAST, aren't they. I was just went fly fishing in a N.C. pond last night and got 2. One on a mickey finn and one on, of all things, an ADAMS!!! That cat wouldda been a fighter. Those buggers get everything. As for those nymphs, I'd second the mayfly vote. Wonder when the hatch is...............LOL. Keep those pics comin'!!!!!

It was a good time, plus watching mcfly hook that cat was cool it really put that 3wt to a test.

I had to smile at your catfish post. I have been fishing an urban creek near my home and it is loaded with cat! This one took me to my backing a week or two ago (6 wt). I was fishing for Carp and Smallies and this was the surprise of the night. Not sure why some folks turn their nose up at these fish, I happen to think they are an absolute blast!

Seeing these cats caught on fly goes to show how much there preditors not just bottom feeders like some think.
