Nice... kind of a Crystal Clouser Bunny Craw. That should do the trick!
The great thing about catch & release is that the fish can live to grow even larger.
In fact, I've known some fish to grow quite a bit larger before the fisherman even returned home

I'll help you out here, young man. You can have from the Powerplant at Louisa to one mile above the Wagon Wheel Restuarant. My wife and I will take from there up the canyon to the stateline. HA! Great fishing if the water is right. I'll taken several trophy class smallies about 1/2 mile above the part. The boulders and rolling gravel will punish your knees and ankles, but it's worth the wade. Poppers and craws kill them in that stretch.
