    Default Claytor 11/30

    Had double back surgery this spring and was on the bench awhile. Got the boat out today for the first time since May. Water temp 43 and visibility about 3'. First winter series of the year is tomorrow, so I mainly just wanted to check the boat and piddle around a bit. Caught 4 in 3 hours. Nothing over 3lb, but all good winter chunks. Caught 1 on a A rig and three on a float n fly. After a long layoff it was nice to get back on the water. Going to get a wet a$$ out there tomorrow, but I'm going anyway. Havn't fished a tourney since April.

    Hit the tourney yesterday and went down like a flat tire. Fished all day for two small spots. Only took 9.44 to win the tourney, which is less than half of what it usually takes this time of year. Anyway, it was nice to manage to get thru a tourney after all the recent surgeries. I was sucking hind tit last night, but it was nice to get back in the fight.

    Thanks for the report. What length rod do you use for the float n fly?

    Cool. The couple of times I've tried it that's what I did too. Seems a lot easier.
