Fished on Friday. Wind was steady, but deployed the old drift sock which at least kept the boat from planing downwind!


Found as many blues as one might want. Great fun to watch the dark shapes appear and start tracking the fly (especially poppers, gurglers, and the like) -- then
fight over which was going to nail it first. If the fly was dropped, chances were very high that 0 to 2 strips and you'd be tight again. Majority were in the 4-6lb class, but also ran across groups of 8lb'ers.

Great fun! Myself and some tackle took a pretty good beating. Fired up the smoker over the weekend.
