Enjoyed perfect weather and great company as the setting for my first alby on the fly:

Here's Capt. Deceiver with same fish:

My buddy with his first alby (from Ohio and lots of small and largemouth experience, looking for something, ummm... different):

Also some blues and probably a bass or two (we'll never know :) .

Back at the dock with smiles and hungry for some more action, so we checked out some local Native American culture on the way back:

and received additional financing for another trip!

Different type of Slam!

You reminded me that I didn't talk about wha was used, thanks.

Mine was taken on a 10 weight with quick dive line (425 grain). Clouser minnow, orangish/red and green, extremely fast retrieve. I can finally say it: "This fish took me into my backing!" :)

The lure is a Yozuri - don't know the model, but medium size, top of the water colum swimmer, black back and silver sides - herring-like.
