    Is that a nymph?

    Egg sucking leech. That and the Thin Mint were super productive on sinking line.
    On top (or just under the surface behind a dry) was the red, glass bead chironomid (glass bead so it wouldn't sink and stay just under the surface).

    Now that you've caught a really nice fish howzabout learning to fly fish, that is, with flies that float on top? >:)

    p.s. Don't hire Sherb as a tutor.

    p.p.s. Really nice fish!

    Keep your stinkin' government hands off my Medicare.

    Actually George, after catching about a dozen while trolling, I went to working on the risers. They were not feeding on dries though, they were feeding on emerging chironomids. So one of them behind a dry worked great.

    If you guys ever come this way I'll gladly trade you a trip for some of these. These are a few from this year so far and they are average. Fly only.

    Mike, you use a 3 or 4 wt for them?

    We have some wipers that get that big. I've only caught smaller ones (still big) on spin cast gear.

    Bamboo 4wt's. :smile: They are a blast on the fly. I also have a lake that has Wipers, we call them Hybrids and they are a hoot on the fly too. Like catching 7 to 12 pound bluegill.
