    I like the corn trick! I'll have to give it a shot. I've been casting at carp and have quite a few lookers but no takers yet.

    Do not rely on a Polaroid waterproof camera, sorry for the quality.

    I also tried to resize these properly but they are not working, so resize if possible.

    I have family in Walland, Townsend, and Knoxville so I try to get there as often as possible. I will reverse the invitation as well. We have 11 lakes within a short distance for Largemouth Bass and Bream, both on Fly rod and regular Baitcasting. The boat is ready when you are, feel free to shoot me an email at tlegere104@yahoo.com.

    Default Accepting the invitation!

    Well, let me be quick to tell you that If I make anymore plans without the wife this year I'm gonna end up sleeping outside. I've got a trip to Montana planed for Sept. and I'll die a long painful death if I leave to go anywhere else!

    Do you guys have any good trout/salmon fishing? I've got a Sgt. who came south from St. Louis. He said he's fished a place or two up that way! It's funny I immediately looked to see how far you were from the White River in AR! I hear that's incredible, just a really really long haul from here!

    Don't be surprised if I take you up on that offer, and feel free to give me a shout if you ever feel like floating a tailwater around here! fishermansfly@gmail.com

    Here is a little background story before the picture. My dad and I got into the water at Center Hill at 4:00 AM, and caught a fish every half hour or so, not bad. I latched onto a monster rainbow and fought him for awhile, got him up to the boat and he was pushing 20+, my dad goes to net him and scoops from behind the fish, catches most of his body but his head weighed more so he dipped back in the water and the line snapped (before I was interested in fly fishing). I was so angry that I didn't want to fish for the rest of the day, but 5 minutes later I reluctantly threw a line back in the water. Sure enough, that cast, I catch another monster rainbow, and was lucky enough to get him netted. He was 22 inches and about 3 pounds, he was a fatty. I battled him for 15-20 minutes, he didn't want to come quietly. But here he is!

    So, I pulled out the XD card on the camera and voila. Pictures are on it! Camera, though, well ... buh-bye.

    Here's my June fish, a week later.
