Hey Woolly, troutjedi, Peddler & any of the rest that want to try the Shad fishin'...

They're Here!!!

Billres, was kind enough to call me Monday from the river while I was at work.
"Hey man the Shad are biting the unnamed Shad fly again, call me when you can slip off".

Called him after I got home from work as my wonderful wife said she'd mind the store
Tuesday ifn I wanted to go fishin'.

We got to the river @ sunup and after a brisk ride upriver...  Found the Shad Still bitin'

Nice Hickory Shad was the first in the boat:

Small American Shad:

Bill with a bend in the rod:

Another nice Hickory:

The Shad bit off & on all morning.  Missed a lot of bites, had several slip the hook and I broke 1 off due to slow fingers (4x tippet & operator error = fish and fly gone).
Wound up with around 20 or so.  Mostly Hickories and 3 Americans.
Weather warmed up nicely and we left 'em bitin' @ 1:00PM.
Last two of the day.  Bill & another Hickory:

20" American Shad:

Thanks again Bill fer another good day on the water.
