One of many big redear that were well earned. Congrats
I'll have to tie up a few of those flies you were using to catch it. Also, the little crystal white woolly bugger you were having such success with on previous trips has worked great for me as well. I fished a small creek in Brenham yesterday and it outperformed any other fly I tried. I caught bluegill, longear, green sunfish and bass off of it. I'll have to spend some time testing it against the magical clouser on white bass this year. White has proven over and over to be the most successful color for me in fast moving water. I bet the sunfish might even like a white Briminator too, LOL.
On a side note, the coloring on one of the long ears I caught yesterday was incredible. I've caught them with brilliant red bodies before but this one had a brilliantly colored green face. Seeing it in the water as I pulled it in was really cool.
