Smallies stepping it up

Puck and I went for some trout fishing last night, but ended up getting entertained by some smallies. They seem to be getting a bit more aggressive these days, perhaps starting a bit of a binge with the cooler nights. Puck did quite well using a soft hackle wet fly, and I duped a few fish with dries.

I was trying to figure out the hatch.....it was sulfurs, and the fish simply wouldn't commit to a size 12. When I changed to a size 14 I hooked a fish on the first cast with it. Thought it was a brown, but the initial leap showed it to be another smallie. Loads of fun on light gear.

The burger and beer afterwards made for a complete evening.
