I caught a few of those today. 3 of them ended up in my aquarium

Great fall weather in KC. Water still warm enough for the float tube. Broke off three flies trying catch their friends. Called it quits after the third fly.

Smallie action was pretty good today on the ol miss. Also had something that snapped my 14# fluoro with one quick run. Whatever it was I'm going back there tomorrow.

First cast of the morning, smacked a black & red folded craft foam popper with brown hen feather & red flash tail. Measured at 18.5", tied for my longest smallmouth to date & probably a bit fatter than the other one.

Not an entirely perfect morning -- a pickerel bit off the bug a few casts later, and I put a new hole in my inflatable when I was taking out to go home for breakfast -- but a pretty good start to the day.

Nice looking specimen there, to bad about the boat and fly loss.
What are you using for tippet/leader material?

I had on 8 pound fluoro, so no surprise about the pickerel. When I'm targeting them I use 20# maxima ultra green, and they slice that from time to time too. The bass are a little bit sensitive about a heavy tippet, though. It's a conscious trade-off.

Now, the boat ... very annoying, I'm having a hard time finding the leak.
