When the seasons change and the seasonal special beers come out I always think "oh this fall beer is my favorite" then in summer "oh this summer is my favorite ... and in the winter... "oh this winter beer is my favorite". I guess I just like beer. Same with fish. Steelhead start to run and I go crazy for them. Brown trout come in from the great lakes and the first one I hook I think "these are my favorite fish to catch" Then it's spring and the blue gill and largemouth are on the beds and I say for sure this is the best season. Annnnd now it's summer in youngstown so I can walk five mins to the village doc and catch big smallies on a 5wt... and I think "oh this is the best season." I guess I just like fish.

The only down side of the Y-town doc is if you don't bring the long handle net you look like an idiot trying to land a big one. Here's a series of pics demonstrating. My wife says its best when you play the theme of Benny Hill in your head. I agree.

just at 22 inches and fat... but really when smallies get that big I should have gone by weight.
