It looks like I got him out of a tin can with a bunch of his buddies all covered in mustard sauce!

Worked great! Glad I patched both sides AND I have one patch from each kit left over. The small tube kit is a clear patch and the other is a thicker patch that feels more like neoprene. The two together work extremely well.

Thankfully I have a decent febuary fish I caught on the Caney. This was my first trip to the Elk...Tiny little river, but really fun. Smaller trout, but out in the middle of nowhere compared to the Caney. Would love to retire near there.

I'm jealous....still not fishing here in ohio. Got reservations for troutfest but really hope to get out before that for sanity purposes....

God Bless & Good Fishing

You need to give me a call if you are near Nashville. I'll come pick you up for a day on the river.

You must have friends like mine. They will take a pic of a little one for the "wall of shame" but will hide if you hook a big one and laugh at you trying to land it alone. I remember being on SoHo with a buddy and he goes come up here I have a pig on. I got up there and looked his pig was a huge hogmolly sucker! That thing fought like a dog. I took off with the only net and laughed as he fought it in on a 3wt alone. One good favor deserves another. I have a pic of it with that hurry and take a pic smartalek face. Oh it's priceless.

Ha! That's funny stuff. Mark and I are new to the sport and haven't really landed any hogs. I would estimate my biggest to be a bow around 20in. The sad part is, that was the only fish caught that day. We had a great time though. Apparently there is a trick to catching the stockers on the Elk. It was a rough day, but we weren't at work!

Just the walk in the woods and spending time with a friend and God was worth it.;) Catching a fish was a bonus. Thanks again for the hook up. I sent you an e mail about the Caney. If you would like, I can take a day and show you all of the spots to wade in...You'll have to figure out how to catch the big ones on your own (because I sure as heck don't know).

I hear you can wade purdy deep.:biggrin: If my employer doesn't start calling me into work, I will have plenty of time to go!:eek: (apparently the economy is bad, so the way to fix it is to cut my hours so I can't spend any money!:confused: )

I might take you up on that offer Dwayne, always wanted to fish the Elk. Or maybe the Caney, and we can teach each other.

You got it buddy, not sure what I could teach you lol. Yeah, the Elk is kind of a hall from Nashville, but the Caney isn't too bad.

From my understanding they're basically both an hour away from me. I think the Elk is a little farther but not too much.

Cool. Well I will try and post the next time I am headed to either.
