After a little break to take care of some other responsibilities, and spend some time at the lake with the family it felt really good to be back on the water today. Had the opportunity to fish with Jon Donehoo and his Father-in-law Mervin for some Big Mo smallies. Jon is working on improving his skills with the fly rod after coming over from the dark side last fall & Mervin (a newly retired Professor)) was new to fly fishing. Both did very well today, with both of them, after a miss or two, bringing fish to hand. There was no middle ground today, the fish either wanted a swung leach or a bright clouser stripped so fast it made your fingers bleed. The smallie fishing looks like it should continue fairly strongly for the next couple weeks at least, so if you want to get out and get some time fine tuning the casting before the “big boys” start showing up, give us a call we still have some openings available.
