Caught a Few Fish at The Pond Tonight

The fish are biting a little better now and the bigger ones are getting hungry. It's about time!

0524181947.jpg A smaller guy but he sure has a nice suit on. Look at them colors!

All fish came to a standard size 12 mayfly nymph on my fly rod.

I will indeed thank you. I have followed also

Well, cool, dude. I like the colors, but them are some weird looking beasties. Guess I've never seen sunfish before, or for that matter bluegill. The one your son is holding kind of looks black and a little mean. Maybe Paleozoic, too. :)

I can't believe you put up with me and my fishing ignorance ways. I need to get 'schooled' in fish nomenclature. :)

The green sunfish look almost pre-historic for sure. That one was pretty dark but it was also the lighting. Here is the same fish with different lighting/angle.
