I had a 24" bowfin follow a homebrewed sneaky pete in, then as he swam away I put a cast right in front of him. He inhaled it and was off the the races. He put up one heck of a fight before I landed him. Sadly I had no camera with me. It was quite exciting. I wonder why no one targets them? He fought as well as any fish I've caught on a fly rod. (Haven't tried for steelies yet).
