Very Nice Don 0--0  I tried for the first time last week, no shad but caught 5 white bass to avoid the skunk. ;D  I'm gonna meet up with FT tomorrow afternoon to try again.

Dave,
Good job with the White Bass...  I ain't caught one in many moons.

BTW--- I sent some of the "unnamed" Shad Flys out to Ditchmonkey today.
Hope they get to y'all in time.

Good Luck!!!

Don,

FT and  I tried again late yesterday afternoon.  Water was a little too cool so it turned out to be a 2 + hour on water casting clinic. o-o

FT and a few others on the Flats...

Keith,

We are fishing in Fredericksburg just south of the Rte 1 bridge close to I-95.  Someone posted a report on another board that he caught close to a 100 in 5 hours of fishing on Saturday.  I sure hope these heavy rains don't shut down the run.  I still want to catch one.  It would be a long haul from Winston for an afternoon but you are welcome anytime.  Let me know when you want to visit.

I headed out of work a little early today to try and catch my first shad.  Weather was overcast and the water just slightly stained. Arrived just past 4 and it only  took about 15 minutes before I landed my first shad :)  The fishing was real slow until just before dark when the switch turned on.  All told I brought 14 shad to hand and two small rockfish.  They sure do put a nice bend in the rod. 0--0  Just past 8:30 pm another fly fisherman landed a 27-28 inch rock fish.  I just might have to sneak out again this weekend.
Don, thanks again for all the tips you have shared with me, also for sending a fly via ditch.

Wow!

Nice pic's and report! I didn't think they had that much color, very cool looking fish.
