Big flies small fish..
Threw large 6-7" flies for lots of 16-20" fish. It was amusing watching them fight over the fly but i'm not sure it was worth the effort and sore shoulder. But, one fish can make the day so I stayed with it only making color and location changes that didn't seem to matter. Not many boats out so I used the dock to tie up on and do boat maint. Got all the live wells & hatches cleaned and organized. Its amazing how much "stuff" just builds up in a boat over a year. It was also a good time to go over the trailer and fully inspect everything while the boats off. I tow a ton of miles and trailers seem to get the most neglect, and it's the one thing that can really screw you over if left to rot away. Nothing worse than being stuck in the middle of nowhere for being lazy. Fill up the truck and boat in California and you better be ready to pay way north of 200 bucks right now. Time to pull out the small CC skiff and 4 stroke! I was thinking of selling it but I might just hold off. Thas shit is out of control 4.29 a gal. I'll be in a float tube before to long. Seriously!
