OK, here I go breaking the rules again. It's just the Maverick in me.

After a long spell of lots of paperwork and no fishing, I started out in search of trout today, but contemplating the 1.5 hour drive to my original destination, and the price of gas, I turned around after a few miles and went back home to get some bass gear and my canoe. Then I headed out to a nearby warmwater stream about noon. After catching some smallish bass and panfish, with the occasional fallfish thrown in, I found a 15 inch smallie that made the day. It took a streamer, and there were about 5 other nice bass swimming with it, including an 18-20 inch specimen. They took turns trying to take the streamer away as I fought the fish. After they got a good look at the canoe and the landing net, though, the others declined to take me up on any subsequent offer I made, even after I rested the hole for a while. What a beautiful day to be out, just a bit of fall chill left over from the morn when I arrived, then a beautiful day in the mid 70's,

OK, Jason, I promise to catch some trout in the near future and post up a respectable report. I understand that JAD is scouting some steelhead already.

Hi all
Louis I'm still stuck on the Little J catching your pet wild browns. Every day same old ---cast and net, Baetis day after day, and I haven't had a good salad sense you left.

PS -- Eric says hi .


They fasten red (crimson red) wool around a hook, and fix onto the wool two feathers which grow under a cock’s wattles, and which in colour are like wax.

sounds like fun! I spent the better part of the dog days chasing smallies on the Juniata, after enough trips to spy on Ron's tying desk at the fly co. it became quite productive.
