It's a black drum, I do believe.


When you find a big kettle of crazy, it's best not to stir it.

It is, indeed, a black drum from Houma, Louisiana. The guide with me in Danny Ayo (a true Cajan Coonass)He is without a doubt the best salt water flats guide anywhere between Corpus Christi and Miami. I now have a "T" shirt that says "Coonass Wannabe". Going back as soon as the heat breaks for 50# one on a fly. My small one was only 24#. Wish me luck. OH BTW,, CComming to AC in November for Bone Fish. And, this is what I tied the fly on.

Convergence of a Hillbilly and Cajun is a volatile mix. Congradulations for the nice catch...how much did that cost per pound?


Gone fishing!!

Bill, I'm told that hillbillys make good Coonass' with the right tutelage. And this is truly a volitile mix which usually manufests itself into an obsessive adiction to salt water flats fly fishing. And the price is no object,,,, until you ask my wife. So;; here it is;;; 1/2 the bill for gas, motel, guide for 2 days, groceries etc was $650. So the per/# cost was about $27.08. But look at it this way, If I get the 50#er next time the cost/# will be about half. Now that is encouraging HUH?

Bll, one would think that fellow from St Louis would recognize a woven, extended body, Green Drake, tied on a #16 scud hook. But, there you go, not everybody is qualified to fly fish. LOL,, LOL,, In reality I caught the drum on a McCrab fly that I tied on a #6 salt water hook. BUT,, you can believe it,, I did build the fly vise I tied them on. KUMON Cold front,,, KUMON November. This 100*/90% crap is killing me. I need a trip.
