Any change in light value (clouds) triggered an epic response from the fish. One fish every 10 feet, coming up to eat a damsel at or very near the surface...a sight not soon forgotten. I will stay away from the lake until the end of next week and hope the hatch lasts, good luck.
Sounds epic!

Hookless barbs? Knowing you, you were checking to see who was paying attention. Good one Jim!

Old Bull,

Roger that. Just a taste of my ultra corny humor like, "time's fun when you're having flies".

Happy 4th of July.

Those who go forth on the fourth with a fifth, may not return on the fifth.

I cannot take credit for this quote. I saw it on a wall in an office at Lowry Air Force Base, CO, many years ago.
