Dadgummit y'all...talk about jumping the gun! If I'm to qualify this month, it looks like it will have to be just under the wire....due to soccer, school, etc...it looks like we won't be able to make it back up there until the last weekend in April. Pretty fish - I suspect the list will be long this month.

This one was caught, along with others of the same ilk, at Miller's Island on a good ol' Jujubee midge. Caught on April 7.

Here is my first entry. Sorry about the picture quality. The wife was with me, and she is not familiar with my camera. Should have taken some pics of last months trout trips, but didn't catch anything picture-worthy.



Caught on 4/7/08 on a #6 white woolly bugger below Melton Hill Dam.

Tried out one our beautiful state park lakes here in Mississippi this past weekend. Not nice as the Smokys, but fun nonetheless.

I almost forgot about this month...I didn't take many fish pictures this last trip, but here's the one I have...nice little rainbow from Cosby, with my assistant at the ready:



BTW Troutman - what do you mean by "waiting for a better fish"? That's a nice smallmouth.

IJ, These are good smallies. I've caught a lot of them in the 14-18" size range. I am trying for a "trophy" fish of 20" or better on the fly. Its like a 20" brown trout is considered a trophy fish in most streams and a 12" native brookie in the park is thought of as a trophy. That is all I meant. Sure you can go to a hatchery supported stream and find big fish but a "wild" trophy is the challenge. I have been trying for a "trophy" smallie for some time now and springtime is one of best times to find them. They're have been some big fish caught this spring on creek minnows and plastic worms by other local anglers, I want to do it on the fly, a personal challenge thing.

Gotcha...20 inches must be a magic number, like 10lbs for a largemouth.

I got an 8-inch brookie on Cosby on Sunday...and I consider that to be a bit of an achievement for that stream, although I lost a few others that were about that same size.
