    Waterwolf,
    I think you're right that it is a longear. I've always heard these called pumpkinseeds, but after looking into it last night, it seems these are really longear sunfish. I edited my post to reflect the correct name.

    Whatever the name, these are some of the most beautiful fish I've ever caught and rank right up there in my book with the Applachian Brook Trout in the Smoky Mtns.

    Argh You gave out the pattern. Just kidding; you know I do the same thing and the larger fish were killing them. The smaller ones will pass on them usually; but, be persistent and try different depths if you want to hook a bigger fish...

    Nice fish and picture!

    Thanks! I should have gotten some shots of Rodney and his boat as he drifted by, and I am waiting to get a good shot at those eagles.

    It was pretty consistent with the blood worm and buzzer combo all morning using my typical summer deep water midge technique. I have found that if you keep the fly down on the bottom, your odds of hooking a large fish are greatly increased. I did manage a few in the slot with one touching 18". That was probably my best day on the Clinch as far as quality goes. I haven't caught the numbers of big fish this year as last year, but the numbers of 12 - 16" trout are good.

    I think so too... I use Xink (nymph dressing) on my tippet and flies to get them to drop quicker and to help them break any kind of cohesion in the water (especially on my smaller midges).
