Guess how much this fish weighs within 8oz
and Ill send you 1/2 dozen warm water flies.
My brother sent this to me..someone he knows.

Contest is over by this time tomorrow night.
10:00 pm Central time.

I think most fishermen way over estimate them.

Good Luck.

9 pounds, 8 ounces.

But ... if I am right, you can give the flies to second place.

laugh.png ... No, my friend.  I've got my favorites that I fish with (three, actually) ... and RARELY use anything else.  I rarely even use the experimental ones I tie myself.

 

 

I've also got two display boards from the swaps I participated in ... but they aren't hung up because I have too much stuff hanging around already.  dry.png

 

I am sure there are plenty of members who'll guess better ... and who'll appreciate the flies more.  wink.png

8lb 8oz. Though I suspect Mike is not far off.

I guess it could be between 6-10lbs.  The pic can be deceiving due to how far he is holding it out from his body. 

 

There have already been guesses if 7-3, 8-8, 9-8, and 18.

 

So, I'll go the other way with 6lb 8 oz.
