Here's mine, a carp I caught at 7:30 a.m. yesterday morning. I didn't measure its length and I didn't have a scale either but I would guess it was at least 15 lbs.
Me too. Smallmouth put up a good fight and are fun to catch.stripersonfly said:huntswithdogs,
...I can get just as pumped up catching a nice small mouth or trout.
If you are healthy enough to move around a little and cast a fly rod, I wouldn't think it is too late. I plan to do it until I can't walk or cast. As far as learning technique, It must not be too tough when you look at the number of people doing it. Why too late?Jon67 said:I tail hooked a 68lbs. paddle fish in the fast water below Gavins Point Dam while standing on ice covered rocks, nearly went for a swim. It's been a while ago, 25 yrs this coming fall. Sorry no pics on computer.
I'm just a bit envious of all you fly fisherman, I always wanted to learn but I'm afraid it's too late.
