Howdy folks! I'm back again with a quick update on some fish catches. I went out on the 25th and broke out the trusty fly rod for a fun afternoon of fly fishing. Lately, I've been putting in a tremendous amount of work on some new patterns that are currently in development. I've almost got them down perfectly. The fish here are being unbelievably picky and if I can get them to strike in these conditions, I've got it made. I landed six behemoth carp, a dinky sunfish, and a nice-sized crappie on that particular day. Funny story about the sunfish. I took a phone call on my cell phone and my fly was dangling in the current. When I was finished talking, I made a backcast and noticed the sunfish zipping through the air. After his terrible ordeal, he was released unharmed. Here's a few pictures from that day.

Hello all! It's been a while since I updated again, but I've been busy fly fishing! I've been chasing more and bigger species on the fly rod and I'll be honest, it feels great. I'm not going to go into a long story about everything because pictures are worth 1,000 words. I have quite a few pictures.
