Elmo loves to fly fish so I asked some of my friends for a fun, river float adventure that had some good warm water fishing. Luckily one of my buddies (who will remain nameless) had a great stretch of water (Which will also remain nameless) that he likes to fish smallmouth and pike on. He really hooked us up as the river was awesome. We floated and fished for the full day and had some amazing action on the fly rod, mainly with pike. Bike pike. At one point I had on easily a 30 plus inch fish, which was really exciting as I had a 5 weight with an 8lb tippet and no steel. Needless to say it was a really fun epic battle.
The day was perfect and I think that Elmo was inspired to do it all over again next year he comes to visit!
