Had the opportunity to watch the race last night in Bristol. While there I couldn't wait to take a friend who hasn't been able to fish very much lately to a local tailwater.

.....but today was his day.

We threw streamers with no success and he gets the idea of throwing a lure similar to a topwater bait with propellers not on a fly rod. The action was fast and furious for a couple of hours while I attempted to maintain boat control with the oars in hand. Side note: graduated to Sawyer oars and I must admit, the composite counterbalanced oars with Shoal Cut blade perform night and day over stock oars.

Here are a few of the many we were blessed with today to catch and then release.


Jason, the conversation earlier today reference open face reel, fly rod, bait caster and being a good all around angler was all about you,..... today my angling brother.

Glad I spent it with you!!!

Thank You,
