Warning:  No fish were injured during this float trip.  Not sure we even saw a fish..... :embarassed:

We had a plan.  We executed.  We struck out.

Enjoy the pics of a Saturday that was just too damn nice.....literally.  The high pressure, sun and wind made for difficult conditions.   But we're not making excuses- we're going back to get our money's worth.  It was fun to get the Cadillac Limousine on the water and watch Flats and BD cast some big stuff.

Damn...Gram and some 11 wts. 

So, what type of water do musky like??  I know folks catch 'em on the South Fork Shenandoah, just have no idea where you'd find the fish.

Thanks for rowing all day.  When are we going again?

Agreed...we we stopped to let BD fish a smallie stretch and I was farting around.   Most of the casting was done from the boat...we covered all the slow water pretty hard and focused on the big holes.    Having seen how deep some of those holes were, I'll probably rig one of the rods with a 300-350 next time.

Long, slow flats and deep, dark holes.
