Hello all;

Fly fished the slews near Lucy's branch Saturday (16th). Huge Willow fly hatch. Caught approx. 20 Bream. Didn't keep any, but there were quite a few in the keeper size range.

Caught some other items as well - One Spotted Gar... Hate them thangs. yuk! This one was abou 4 pounds. Also caught a Catfish on a fly(!) it was about 3 pounds and gave a terriffic fight. ...and lastly, I caught a bird. Upset me. It was a swift or some other fast, small swept wing bird. Luckily, it spit out the fly and went on it's way. It had snatched the fly right before it hit the water during a cast.

I fished a hopper/dropper set up from a kayak. A fun evening of fishing... And quite the variety too!

Later! Mitch Delk
