a few of you may have seen this over on sefff, but i figure what the heck i could use a few more post. besides there hasnt been a warm water post on here in almost a month :)

two weeks ago i was planing on a trip to panthertown this weekend to fish for brookies, but i had things that needed to be done on saturday. so i could not make the trip

my friend mr_mcginty was in a mood for a float on the new again. since i had sunday open i decided that was a great idea.

we were at the put in around 8:30. the water look better than i was hoping it would, not too cloudy, but it was down some from my last float.

the fishing was on. i tied on a white popper and didnt have to take it off all day. everything i caught was on top water . i was one of those days that if you go fishing enough times your bound to hit it right a few times. mr_mac got a few on minnow imatations, but majority of his was also on top

here he is hooked onto a nice one

we also got to hit the fast water on molly osborne shoals, and penitentiary shoals

i hooked into this smallie, he jumped the hook came loose. when i lifted up my fly it had something reddish, and looked like it was part of something alive hooked to it. my first thought was. oh man i ripped part of his gills out. i felt bad, but when i got it closer i relized i had only stole his meal way from him. my hook was impaled in this crayfish claw. that was in his mouth i guess

before the day was out. i did manage to hook into a fairly nice fish. that went around 21 inches

looking forward to at least one more float before it cools of to much this fall.

taken from the christian conservative handbook.  how to deal with modern problems.


Wish I had known you guys were hitting the New... I sure want to float it again ASAP.   :)
