Went to Franklin on Sunday… used my father’s day fish card. It was extremely sunny, but very nice outside. I had a dismal day fishing though with 2 fish caught in 2 hours. I would call it a complete waste of time except for the 2 lb small mouth I caught near the end on a Clouser. Unfortunately, I ended up knocking the eyes off of it somehow (great casting skills obviously) and the fly just didn’t work well when it didn’t sink. I did see some of the large catfish I mentioned in an earlier post. They were trolling around on the surface. I would have mistaken them for carp except for the coloration.
I think I’m going to invest in a nice 7 wt rod soon and lots of clousers. I haven’t caught a harder fighting fish than that smallie.
