Default Another bull red on a fly!

Well i wasnt planning on going out any during the week but after getting a couple text from some buddies about the reds being on top in the lights, I couldnt help me self! jdhkingfisher must have read my mind cuz he was unloading right when i pulled up. We started working the lights with some soft plastic and started hooking up pretty quick! After seeing a bunch swimming on top and busting on the surface, I pulled out my fly rod and started casting at them, I had a couple follow and bump it and then one busted something on the surface and i threw the fly at him and he nailed it! He made a good run and then spit the hook i started casting at a couple more and then bam hooked up again. After a long fight i landed this nice 35 inch red! I put the fly rod up and pulled out the gulp to try and rack up on some kayak wars points but on manage one more bull! josh landed a couple more and one was 40 inches. Awesome night! Im super tired at work from staying out late and waking up early but it was worth it!

Thats a nice fish man, and impressive on a fly for sure. Is that the Go Pro you use for the stills, I was told it doesn't take great stills but those look really good.
