A funny thing happened while screwing around with my 3WT for some bream...

My oldest daughter turned 6 on the 1st. She got her first adult-sized spinning rod and we shit-canned the Disney Princess gig. She has been beating my ear to go try it out. So I caved in today. I quit working in the garden and loaded her, her younger sister, their rods and some red worms into the van. For shits and giggles I brought along my 3 wt and a box of mixed nymphs. Off to lake rim...
The girls were fishing away and I was toying with the bream when all too suddenly, my line went tight. This guy was on the end. He is not a monster only about 12" but it felt like one on that 3WT rod. I grabbed him on a BH Copper John black. I was lucky he did not have much in the teeth department because I was running a 6x tippet. At first when I saw him I thought maybe I had hooked a bream and he grabbed the fish but if you look real close you can see the BH sticking out of his craw. I don't fish for warmwater species with a flyrod so I don't know if this is odd or not. I figured he saw the flash of the bead and struck it.



Pickerel is damn good eatin! I'm hoping to get after em' while they are over the grass beds this spring....so far two short follows is all though.  :embarassed:
