That were strong and pulled hard……
It’s been a hot summer and that means TOP WATER SMALLIES!! Here’s a some pics from the past few weeks.
All of these fish were caught on top water poppers using 5 and 6 weight fly rods! We still have a few days open and can accommodate up to 6 anglers per day. Book your trip as soon as possible since summer will be over before you know it and the top water bite will be gone as well. Here’s a quick link for your convenience…
BTW not everyday is ideal…. check out this happy family on a 3 boat float.
Had a blast floating and fishing the Nolichucky Gorge with my buddies this weekend. Some of the highlights…
Mack aka Richard falling 1-15/16ths out of the boat. First person to ever be ejected from my boat and he was rowing!
Loosing my Sage SP 9ft 6wt into the river at Murphy’s Ledge, then finding it just down stream. Of course it broke on the next fish I hooked!
The look on Jeremy’s face when Chad got them into a little trouble.
Overall a fun time with a great group of friends! Chunking flies as a added bonus.
Here’s two videos from the weekend… short version and long version. Hope you enjoy!
My buddies have one man pontoons and keep sending me pics like this one….
Headed out for an afternoon float after church on Easter Sunday. Like most trips early in the year we brought along the hardware just in case we couldn’t get em on the fly. Surewas nice to be back smallie fishing even though it’s been a great winter and spring chasing trout. Float fishing on free flowing water, throwing big popping bugs for smallmouth bass…. oh how I love thee!
We didn’t wear em out, we didn’t get skunked and sure could have caught more on subsurface flies and hardware but just watching them engulf the popper does something to my inner being. It’s only going to get better from here.
