Hi Q

Thanks - you may be right. The mouth on these fish looks a bit like a Carp - heavy duty lips but no barbules and not too underslung. Also the coloration is more silver with a dark grey back. A 2-3 pounder would definitely be a good scrap on a 5wt!

How far up are you fishing? I might car top the kayak up there if you fancy hooking up this week-end?
When sight fishing, look over your shoulder from time to time, you never know who's behind you

When I lived in West Virginia I used to use a small Charlie pattern. White with pearl flash or pink with pink flash. Used to have a great time and the practice stalking a spooky fish has really helped my down here on the gulf!

We who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who could not hear the music.
