Fished my usual spot last friday. After all the rain the water was VERY cloudy. Not quite chocolate milk but pretty nasty. I was able to get a few to bite.

Was getting ready to go home but decided to make a few more casts. My back cast was a little low and the fly caught some long grass behind me. I went to dislodge my fly from the grass and as soon as I got the fly out I looked down and noticed a Dark Brown snake not 3 feet from where I was standing. I am fairly certain it was a Cottonmouth. Scared me half to death and I am sure I screamed like a little girl. He just slithered off and left me alone but it was too late for my nerves and I decided to head out. bolt

Snakes are fun. Those last two look like some really good size Green Sunfish.

Where is the pic of the snake? If it slithered off, it likely was not a cottonmouth.

Snakes give me the chills,I have no time for them, water snakes are agressive and rattlers and Cotton mouths are what I believe to be good if they are dead.

Don't like snakes much myself. I didn't stick around long enough to get a picture.bolt But he was the exact same color as this guy. Didn't see his head. https://snakebuddies.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/western_cottonmouth.jpg?w=640&h=480

I usually leave snakes alone if I can. I saw this video a while ago which made me think twice about killing them. https://youtu.be/314N7xIeRR8

you know when you are up on a high building and you look down and your butt tingles? ever done that? I get that same butt tingle when I almost step on a snake. A cottonmouth is definitely a butt tingler. -p-
