i have my daughter on the weekends, and this time my friends son came over for the weekend as well. he likes to fish, but neither of his parents are the outdoors type, and possibly sunburn just walking to the car.

we had a tough time fishin the clinch yesterday so we decided to do some swimmin and paddlin around in the kayak at norris lake today instead. of course i brought a couple of fly rods along as well... even though i am not nearly as good with warm water species as i am with the cold water varieties. i ended up catching two bass, one about 6", and the other a personal fly rod best 16". i'm a little sketchy on my bass ID, but i think its a smallie. if not please correct me. i fished for about 20 minutes after that with nothing else biting, but i was happy so i let the kids take over the kayak.

Yep, that's a smallmouth all right. And a nice one at that.
