Rueben...did you go further north? Cam,OMD and little Cherokee and I were gonna try to do a float way up north near I-85 but I got hosed all weekend :twisted:

you still slaying them on the tequeely fly?

and for you and anyone else that has the occasional use for the spinning rod....I stopped at Barron's outfitters Sat. and picked up some new line that just recently came out....its called unifilament by Berkely....its some kind of gel spun polyester whatever....its white and looks and feels like dental floss...and it was $20 for a 150 yd spool.....but its worth every penny! this stuff casts effortlessly....will throw the tiniest of lures (I bought 8 pound test) I probably made about 300 casts with it sunday morning and it never fouled a bit....I was throwing a wee pond minnow ( a little tiny 3/4 inch crankbait that probably only weighs about an 80th of an ounce) the largest fish was about 5 pounds and made several good runs against the drag which was set pretty tight....and this stuff felt like 20 pound spider wire....was never worried about it breaking! for spinning rods I highly highly recommend this stuff !!

you may now return to your normal flyfishing chatter :D

JT, that was as close as I could get to the eagle. I rowed in closer and as soon as I started to raise the camera the eagle took off :cry:
