No way man, I'm hard to offend ha ha

That "time" My husband knows to hand me my 3wt and a huge bar of chocolate and if his fish is bigger... not to say it too loudly ha ha

No lynching here, just the occasional bragging and often helping eachother, sounds like you had a great time and bluegill are awesome! They'll inhale just about any fly but what was your best pattern?

Yeah I'm working on more and more of those every year here in PA. My favorite one is getting dredged this summer and it makes me sad. Just hoping it comes back close to what it was in a few years. Not unusual to catch 30+ fish in 3 hours. 12-15" bass, but every bluegill in there is bigger than a hand. I've never caught a small one out of it. It's amazing.

Farm ponds are great for many reasons. The never get touched, usually aren't too big so you don't have to worry about where the fish are, and you don't ever have crowds. Can't wait to try a few others this year!

Keep up the pics and stories guys!

My grandparent's WVA farm pond had a frequently sighted snapper of legendary proportion with hamburger shouldered Bluegillians.

Hit a private lake yesterday to teach a friend to fly fish. Landed 1 fish when I had a fly in the water for a bit.

That farm pond looks bigger than some of our lakes.

It used to be a public swimming lake but when the owners got a bit older they closed it. They attend our church and they open it once a year for a picnic and let people swim. It hardly ever gets fished from what I heard and this was only the first time I've fished it. I'd guess it's probably about 8 acres big, if I were to guess. They built a massive log cabin on it about 5 years ago and run a bed and breakfast out of it as well. It's gorgeous and if I ever hit it big I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

Looks like there are some nice fish in there also! Are there only warm water fish in there?

I've seen bluegill, crappie, carp and catfish as well as the LM. I heard rumors that they stocked it with trout years ago and an old friend of mine caught a very small rainbow trout in it a few years ago. I would hesitate to confirm that though. No natural reproduction streams in my area of the state at all, but not sure exactly how deep this lake gets.
