Had a little one take a swipe at a flash streamer on Saturday, hooked himself underneath the bottom jaw. I had several others take swipes and not get hooked.

Yesterday was my pune barfday. I ended up having to work. This is America...
So at 5PM, I decided, fuck it, I have had enough and that I would try find Neusie. Got stuck in traffic, but I preferred the AC and blasting toons over engineering shit talk.
Neusie: She is this big bitch of a gar who has successfully broken two rods, countless leaders and my heart on several occasions.
Yesterday, in the dying moments of the daylight, I managed to salvage what would have been the worst birthday and lay claim to the 50"+ club. Not that anyone cares about numbers, but I personally needed to see if these thangs grew to that length in this drainage, and they sure as fuck do.
This is the lesser spotted schlongnose gar...
Image
Thought I had her beat. Five more powerful runs and presto...

I was so stoked I peed my pants.

And grabbed some suss Sanchez dindins. I also have the biggest hangover known to mankind today. Fuck, it won't get easy, just hit mid-dirty thirties :vomit
Peace y'all

[report]Being that I live in a state full of fucking gar, I have been on a mission to catch one on the fly. A buddy told me about a place that he calls the gar hole, and it's name describes it perfectly. When we arrived, I knew we were in gar territory....

Image

When we got down to the water, there were gar hitting the surface all over this big deep, slow pool as they caught their next breath. I wasn't sure which one to cast to first. My buddy came around and high-holed me, and immediately hooked up. He caught it on a 7wt bamboo rod he built too!

I tried like hell the rest of the day to get one myself, and I just couldn't make it happen. If I could have cast another 20ft, I might have had a shot. Oh well, I'm hooked now. I must catch one!!!!

[report]Bill recently destroyed plans to float an Ozark stream for smallies. So Father’s day left me with free time but no rivers that weren’t blown out. Plan B was hatched. Snuffbox, A lurker and I decided to chase down some “Hillbilly Tarpon” in the flooded backwaters. It was a ridiculous slimy success.

This is not a boat ramp

Snuff gripping the gunwale and clinching his asshole. Every time this one twitched the canoe rocked a bit.

We did not smell good and were covered in gar shit but it was time for some sustenance.
