    Pumpkinseeds - warm water brookies.

    I meant freshwater to be warmwater, an all encompassing category. And I know about pumpkinseeds, they KILLED a bee imitation that I had.

    Default Vote 'Bows

    Okay I voted "bows I have always been a sucker for the underdog. Plus it is the first fish I ever caught as a boy, and the first fish caught on a fly.

    Default Cutts

    Its not on the list, but my favorite species to pursue would be Cutthroat Trout. They have the aggressiveness and vivid colors of a Brookie, mixed with the athleticism of a Rainbow. Plus they live in some of the most scenic and pristine parts of our country so even if I don't catch one, I enjoy just being "out there"...

    Haven't managed one of those beauties yet. next year for sure. up until this year I would have said Brookies hands down. I spent all of my time in the HIGHEST elevation streams, a lot of the stuff like Craig does....but now that I am getting better at catching some bigger browns......I have to go with the gold bellies.

    It had to be Brook for me...they're what got me hooked on this in the first place, and there's something about them being the true natives, at least in the East; perhaps if I fished out West, it would be the cutthroats.

    Default Hard Call

    Ta - I have to agree with you on that one. My first saltwater fish on fly was a 9 in. Aber Jack and he fought like a 2lb largemouth. I just caught it last month and cant wait to hit the salt again. Although I still love to catch 5lb largemouths on "Big Poppers" , and Catching Tout are great fun as well.
