What can I say... Im hooked! I've heard lots of people talk about the success you can have on the Caney with a fly rod. I decided to give it a try last weekend. I couldn't believe the number and size of the fish I caught. The pic below is my personal best. I was using a 7 ft rod and fishing a Clouser Minnow streamer. I could only get the fly about 20 feet from the boat but I'm sure I'll improve with practice. Turns out during generation floating down with the current, 20 feet is plenty. I'll be taking the fly rod with me every trip from now on!

Heck yeah biglures,
I couldn't keep missing all the fun!

Thanks LA,
Sorry to hear about the LSwho affliction. I'm an Auburn fan so I'll probably be eating my words this weekend. We haven't shown enough offense to beat any SEC team yet this season. May the best team win though. I've got a few LSwho fans and we all get along except for one weekend out of the year.

That is a nice brown male. Looks like he is ready to spawn. What did he measure? 21? 22?

scrub,
21.5 is what I measured with shaking hands, so I just said 21"-22".

doe,
I'm just now learning the fly so you might want to ask someone more experienced. I'm afraid it would be a situation of blind leading the blind =~)

Might not be such a bad thing to be blind that close to TNDoe, RIK \:D
