|Kellen catches a Dollar Sunfish (Lepomis marginatus).|
|The proud angler shows off her catch.|
Kellen caught two fish on crickets with her very own tiny pink spinning rod, and then aunt Kelly worked with her to land one on the fly rod.
Kelly was really excited when she called me Saturday evening, and the first words out of her mouth were simply "I win." Kelly and the long rod outfished all other methods including bait.
|Big Bluegill (L. macrochirus) can't resist a woolly bugger.|
In total, Kelly caught fifteen large Bluegill plus a few dinks and one 12" Largemouth Bass. Elizabeth, Kevin's wife and Kellen's mom, caught one small catfish on a stink bait. Kevin, who fished with spinning gear and lures, didn't catch any. At the end of the day, he was quite annoyed that he had been thoroughly outfished by a girl with a fly rod.
Welcome to my world, brother.
