Not a fishing trip...but still catching fish?

I don't really recall how the rod, the flies, and all of the other gear made it into the car, but it all ended up in my hands with a free two hours, a backpack, Holly, and a mountain lake. 

And there were denizens of the centrarchid kind willing to eat all manner of things presented. Some larger than you might expect; and most were my favorite kind of "bluegill"

Lepomis auritus
Here's to fishing...when you're not supposed to be of course.

Still alive...

I'm not dead, just busy. Haven't fished much lately since I started teaching a summer session course (genetics, BIO 274) at the local university. Spending some time this weekend with friends and family in the Catskills...not a fishing trip.
