  1. caught a bunch of these things. for a while there, I couldnt keep them off my line. brown flash buggers were the ticket, and had to high-stick for them, as their bite was so very gentle today. the biggest was about 30", slightly over me thinks.

  2. good problem to have!

    If they were caught on sunday, it was a ditch, not a river......
