It's been awhile, but the weather finally cooperated and was able to once again hook a smallie. Spent Saturday and Sunday fishin them hard and ended up with about 25 smalles between us. Not a record by any means but hey I would have been happy with 1. We caught some decent sized fish too!!! I'll post some pics below.

I forgot to post that info didn't I:confused:

Anyway Saturday morning started out with them hitting a Bumble Bee Popper pattern and the rest of Saturday and all of Sunday they were hitting #6 Olive Wooly Buggers. Only had a few in my box on Saturday and after losing a couple I went to the fly shop Saturday night and bought a couple dozen!!!

Is that George W in the second pic? Must have been an experience to fish with the president. ;)
