I have been craving the shad run for a few years. Growing up in tidewater VA, I had seen the run at it's peak, then saw it die.
That was pre-obcessive fly fishing. I messaged Itieuglyflies after last years posting by he and Woolly. Can I get in the action?
Lo and behold, it came to be this week. Woolly took more pics, we caught more feesh.  ;D
It was not an epic day by Fred's quota, but I was thrilled. No Americans to the boat, but a striper, some herring and lots of hickory shad to hand.

Got delayed by an accident on 95 by a few minutes and my host had already gotten the bote in the water. Loaded my gear and got to his hot spot.
Early bird gets the worm. Anchored up, broke out his coffee, muffins and conversation. The only interruption waiting on some daylight were the university crew boats rowing down the river. Fred stood to cast and one 4 man bote passed inbound of us. That was uncalled for!
But the first fish was soon to hand and it was game on.







A big ass tug came churning up the river. The falls are just above use and no barge for it is in sight. WTF?
Welcome to downtown.  -0-





Old Fenwick and Martin multiplier got her done.
Fred is the man. Coffeed me, beered me, feed me, boated me, flied me.
Eternally grateful.  bd;0
Went to leave and I-95 was a demolition derby, again. Took the long way home.
All was fine, Pho take out on the inbound.
Slept like a sore armed baby.

Awesome!  95 is always crazy it seems.  Nice Legend beer, I'm a big fan of their Brown Ale.

After working outside yesterday, decided it was time to Shad fish.  Went downtown this morning in my canoe and caught about 2 dozen hickories and small perch.  Nice morning to be out, saw a lot of fly fishermen throughout the whole stretch.
Few pics of the Richmond skyline..

I think one of those boats you saw up river above 95 was yours truly. I only saw one canoe out this am and it setup a hundred yards or so below us.. The bite was on......many,many, shad visited the Jon boat this morning.

I thought it would be winding down by now.
Same for the white bass. But I've killing em this week.

If the canoe was green it was me.  I was there around 8 and stayed until 10.  Fishing was good, seemed everyone was into them.  I saw a group of 4-5 boats just upriver of the 95 bridge, looked like a lot caught up there.  I was going to paddle that way but with the winds picking up decided to head out.

Easy 30 minute or so drive from home, can't beat that.
