Wanted to head to the coast this morning. The forecast had changed and was more sporty than me and the 14' jonboat wanted...

Slept late, grilled some ribs fer lunch.

Throwed the yak in the truck and headed to the river. Closest ramp (10 minutes from the house) had a crowd swimmin' and such...
Drove (10 more minutes) to the next closest landing, a private landing and I was the only human on that stretch :D

Water is real low and slightly stained.

Fished the 5wt with a #6 chartreuse Sneaky Pete...
First cast, fish on...

Paddled up.

Image

The Rebreast were biting on top.

Image

Waded one stretch.

Image

Still biting.

One more Redbreast picture.

Caught @ 30 4-8" Redbreast. Had many misses, several spit the bug out and one big Rooster exploded outta the water and ate the bug on the way back down, ran around a log and broke off.

Was a grand evenin' on the river with my favorite fish...

I have to confess that I have never caught a redbreast on a fly rod. I have heard that they will eat the dickens out of a catalpa worm. Those were as pretty as I have seen.

Those redbreast are held in high esteem back in the areas where Nub and I grew up. They are georgeous and will pull your string, Congratulations on a good day.
