Jeez, what a fabulous weekend!

Had the opportunity to get a new fly for my Loop 6wt and get into a few fish I haven't seen this year too much, yet. :-) I was out at this lake before sun up. It was a nice day. Overcast so the fish weren't too spooky.

and now, some fishy pictures, this large mouth was maybe 2 pounds and was he surprised.
 Chain Pickerel. Knew right where it was at. Hiding in the slime at the spillway. Floated a juicy morsel by it a few times, assuming that just before the fly went over the spillway this do was gonna hit it. And, that's what happened. :-) Had it back in the water before it even knew what happened.

I don't get to see these Golden Shiners that much. This one looks like its been around the block a few times. Bass just love these things.

 Just above was a pleasant surprise. Chunky, old and what a tugger!

And then, ran into a real fighter, actually wound out the drag for a minute on this one. Don't know where he thought he was going without shaking my hand...So, while there were more fishies. Just wanted to pop in and show you the weekend.

Oh my, fishing's getting pretty good round here

The perch are rather lively and a real chore getting them to hand. 

Future fly fishing fan club. lol

This is my really difficult casting area. Zero backcast room. Fish left to right and straight ahead...

Nice fat specimen after last light

Another beautiful evening in the neighborhood.

Nice evening it was yesterday. Little breezy but the temps were nice and the fish were hard to get. Lost a pickerel to an immediate bite off. Lost a nice perch because I tried to pick it out of the water with the line rather than my hand. And lost another who hit it hard and I hit back just as hard but didn't let it run...and then, finally got a little one that tried to evaporate into the reeds...

Weekend part 1

 they were pretty fun this day. Had the fly fishing fan club and their young-uns in attendance. Weather was okay.

After awhile of fishing the swans started feeding in the area I was in so it was time to least that area
