Blackwater fishing

Had to visit the wife's parents place in the low country of South Carolina. After a few beers and some liquor I took a short while to visit one of the blackwater streams that winds through a marsh on the back of the property. The waters of these creeks are stained dark tea color year round from decomposing plant matter, with tree roots giving much of the structure. No huge fish, but some pretty panfish and a few bass that I am sure have never seen an angler.

No wet wading here. At least not by me.

Some pretty fish that put a bend in the 3wt.

Always take a fly rod

Pastor explains icons to my son: you know like the fish symbol on the back of cars.

My son: My dad has two fish on his car and they're both trout!


Grand pictures!

really cool water and the color on the panfish is sweet!

Love those spring colors on those panfish.....Blackwater ponds seem to 'fish' better, Don't they?  It must be the stillness of the water so you can see every strike.


Nice CR those breams fight like crazy.  Why was'nt I invited did you lose my # or something. ;)
