    Nice fish. I like the sunfish pattern. I've been going up to Northern Ontario for about 30 years, no largemouth up there. I don't think we've ever had a 200 bass week. We catch a lot of 13-14...

    Some gills and a bass

    Just got back from a week of fishing on a lake in the Poconos. Had a decent week. Spent a lot of time fish from the dock near the house. These were all caught on a floating mop fly.
