1st fish of 2008 was . . .
a small rainbow trout. Second was a slightly larger brown trout. Then a school of bluegills moved into the area and I caught several of those in about 15 minutes before I packed it in for the day. All fish were caught on a black bead-head woolly bugger. It's officially springtime for me
The farther you can cast, the easier it is for a fish to take you into your backing. I seldom see my backing . . .
