Nice batch of 'gills and a big Redear to boot!  I've been ... neglecting ... my fishing lately.  I seriously need to get back out on the water!

Thanks guys. It was fun. 
There ain’t much better than a bluegill’s sweet meat with skin coated in cornmeal and lemon pepper. Yum

The river has cleared nicely after an early algae bloom and a lot of rain the last few weeks. It was a blast to cast from the bank out past the drop off. Then slowly retrieve a slow sinking bug with a few small twitches, letting it flutter down, then a couple twitches more to bring it back up within sight. Only to have it disappear in a flash and swirl just before reaching the shallows.

The stud came up, hit my dry fly (Size 12 mosquito) , and went back down to the bottom of the river and at that point I could barely move him with my 5/6 weight rod.

He was a stud, coming in at 21 inches, which is a new PB for me. Btw according to the state anything over 17 inches is a trophy grayling.

Lots of catch-up yard work this week-end, postponed by the rains earlier this month, but I was able to sneak down to the lake for an hour or so Saturday evening and throw a dragon fly nymph pattern, orange was the preferred color by a bunch of little guys.

My wife and I are still slugging our way through a complete kitchen remodel so lately there's not much time for fishing or tying.  I did get out last Saturday and after missing more than a few takes (out of practice I guess) I finally got a small stream bow and brook trout to hand.  Plus I'm happy to report I landed my personal smallest fish ever after a mighty battle.  A few more of those and I could open a bait shop.  As a bonus I found a nice wood handle net hanging stream side in a bush in the middle of nowhere.  The wood frame was in great shape.  The net had a hole and will need to be replaced.    As net material is not biodegradable finding it was good for both myself and the residents of the stream.

Tossed the 8wt this morning for a little bit from the bank trying for a snook or big bass. Got this big Gill on a #1 ahrex tp streamer instead. 😲
