Was a spur of the moment thing, but I got out Saturday morning for about 3 hours to fish for shad on the Appamattox river in Petersburg. They did not disappoint. Landed at least 30 and my buddy did even better than I.

Highlight of the day was my first ever American shad on the fly rod. It was not big by Amnerican Standards maybe three pounds -- I caught a couple of hickories close to that range -- but in more than 10 years of shad fishing it is the only one I have caught on the fly rod.

Lost two other Americans that would have been considerably bigger.

That's a good catch Dan!! All hickories for me so far this year. According to reports the Americans are few and far between on the Rapp.
