Congrats. and cool pics. I had just heard the exact same story from my buddy who went 2 days ago. White dead drifted streamers to match the shad kill.

I want to take this opportunity to brag on Shore. I miss fishing with this guy, and there is not an angler more successful on the Caney for brown trout than he...maybe some just as, and I think we're both learning what it takes to get the Admirals [I categorize trout into rank...since there are so many different distinct size classes...Admiral being anything over 30-32"...Grand Admiral being a 35-36", which I'm sure do exist in there]. I also want to say how amusing it is to see a good buddy of mine, an "amateur" if you will [haha] going out and doing something that I would be willing to put money down saying no upstart fly guide out of Nashville has even come close to scathing. 5 browns over 20", up to 25" in a single outing, mixed with stripers? Yeah...probably not. And yet, they charge HOW much? And people wonder why I have a bad taste in my mouth...stupid stupid stupid. Do what works. Period. Obviously...this pattern is more than just stupid chuck and duck...its efficient and because of that, if you apply knowledge to it, its deadly. Why complicate the process? You can play basketball in clown shoes, sure, but what does that prove? I'm not down on all guides out there, alot of them are really decent chaps, but I still find it so amusing that their marketing angle isn't so much what or how much they catch but more...WHAT they catch it ON....which to me, is sheer whimsical farce.

For instance, I knew a gentleman out of the BPS fly shop who went around proclaiming to be a guide [using borrowed knowledge from a great flyfishing friend who now incorporates jerkbaits in his arsenal as well....smart guy]had the brochure and everything...Orvis patches, the works...man, he was "PRO"...and yet, when I asked him the biggest fish out of the Caney he had...oh 22" and that was a fluke above and beyond. I didn't tell him we were averaging 2-3 a trip that size, and sometimes hooking into as many as 8-9 including some whoppers. But somehow...because this guy wore the right stuff and had the right tackle, he was paid BIG BUCKS and now works for some fish-in-a-barrel place in GA "guiding" people to starving trophy trout...tigers don't traditionally eat tofu, but if you keep them lockjawed for a few weeks, and then throw some in there, I don't think they're going to be too picky. Stuff like that...irks me. That and the fact he would take down my pictures when he found out they weren't "Caught on fly rod"...seriously. Heck, I've just been around the right people down here talking fishing, and have been asked to do some destination trips. Probably too much red tape for me to do it, but I might "tag along" to "help out"...you know. I don't feel guilty for that when approached, as opposed to yay-hoos who dress up and PRETEND like they know what they're doing....this is NOT all guides out there and not especially on the Caney, but these people do exist and there are a few out there. Just saying...
