Loc: My Honey Hole

FINALLY, after many failed attempts at trying to sight fish for these on the fly at my local creek, I came up with something today. I caught it on my 5 wt with a Zug Bug.



They have really pretty color and I love the hints of red on them. Not very big, but very rewarding.



Now I must ask, do you guys know what kind of sucker this is? I was thinking is was a Redhorse sucker, but I'm not sure.

That is a Trinity River Salmon. Also known as a bugle mouth bass.

Nice going. It is always more rewarding to overcome a challenge. Zug bug is one of my favorites.
