    Default June Submission

    It was a wet and foggy evening on the Clinch.
    This guy was 7 3/8 inches and was caught on a #14 Trinia's Montana Prince Blue. I bought this fly in West Yellowstone, Montana several Years ago and I just was wondering if it would work here.

    Hey Brett,
    I've gotta get my June fish (Boy I wish I'd have had my camera yesterday!!) but I noticed on the May results sheet I didn't have my X for May. I did get a photo submitted though on page 1, not much of a fish but hey, a fish none-the-less. Thanks--Bran

    Man, I'm so sorry....I attempted to put that together at around 2 in the morning....I was a little tired. I usually double check the whole thing about twice...I was trying so hard to figure out how to sort the names alphabetically I lost focus on what was important...Bare with me guys I'm gonna get it right as soon as I can get some time off...I'm off tomorrow and it's first on my to do list!

    I will double check the list again and get it right!

    My apologies again,
    ~Brett

    I'm going to be out of state for a couple of weeks in June so I'm going to go ahead and post what I've got. Road Prong brookie on one of PeteCz's yellow stimulators.

    Well ... shoot. Looks like I'm out of the running. After hitting the tri-fecta on the Clinch today my Fuji took a swim and won't "dry-out." I had a nice 'bow to show ya'll. Good luck everybody! ARGH! That's twice, so no more cameras on streams for me

    JimmyC, you might want to check into some of the waterproof cameras. There are some really nice ones on the market now and its always fun to have on hand for that great catch...

    I know it still early in the month but I just wanted to put this one up already. I hope to have it swapped out with something from the park, but these guys put up such a hard fight its hard to pass them up.

    I ordered some flies from another site that deals with carp fishing, I believe they are called a meat whistle. They basically look and feel like a big jig, so they are interesting to cast. You really need the extra weight of the fly to get it to the bottom fast.

    A secret I learned is to put these flies in a can of corn and let it sit outside for a couple of days. When you cant walk past it without holding your nose, its ready!!! What ever you do, DO NOT put these flies in your normal fly box, get one just for your carp flies. I think the smell gives me a slight advantage on catching these super spooky fish.
