Re: FOTM - 2011 Rules/Discussion/Archive

Thanks Tangler. I would suggest in lieu of a really kick ass prize like a guided float (unless some generous soul wants to offer it) we give the winner a bunch of flies donated by some of the best tyers on the forum? I certainly am not one of the best tyers, but there are a few patterns I tie well and could tie up a couple dozen or two to donate as a prize for the winner. What do you guys think? Lame? Cool? Maybe?

Re: FOTM - 2011 Rules/Discussion/Archive

Well, as there are so many good souls on this forum, we may have a pretty good prize package at the end of the year :) Stay tuned...

Tangler - thanks for consolidating all this, I owe ya !

The submission topic will be up on the 5th as soon as polling closes and we see what kind of contest this will be - Big Fish or Best Picture.

The February submission page, and all subsiquent pages, will be posted the last week of each month.

Looking forward to more great shots !

Re: FOTM - 2011 Rules/Discussion/Archive

Thanks T4S - I will tell you I caught this guy hanging out with a couple of his buddies. 3 of them sitting in about a foot of water. One was the same size as this fish and the other was around 3-4" longer with the same girth. True footballs ;D I lipped that fish and he popped off after a few seconds. Looked all over for that guy, but never saw him again. He was a true beast, but I was happy with the one I got. Got to love those mysis fed fish.

Rick that's a nice cat! I too love leeches for lakes/reservoirs. Believe it or not buffalo hair wiggles quite nice!
