This is one heck of a Rio year on my local creek. This 10 incher came to my brown Wacky Worm on my 2 Wt glass rod yesterday. What fun that was. Now where in the heck is that 10 inch Blue Gill on my bucket list. who_knows

Thanks Fitz�, J-Moe, Banker, and gar1970. I am kind of proud, not necessarily about the fish but mostly that I learned how to post pictures from my phone. Of course I had to get some tutoring from banker, bless his heart. hmmm

Great Rio!

I would trade any of the +/-10" greenies or bluegills that I have caught over the years for a Rio.

Thanks again folks. Laker, the rubber worm (wacky worm) I use, is a 1" long and sinks very slowly. Often the fish hit it just as it touches the water. Sometimes I tie a couple of hook length strips of .025 lead wire when fishing deeper water. I've used Black/Yellow combinations on wholly buggers, and dragon flys and at times, I have done real well. I just like watching my fly line twitch when using slow sinking rubber flys. smile
