I was to go on this trip but missed my phone call.

Broad River 5.0 smallie caught by an anonymous friend.

We can go when you want to go during the week. Best to spend the night and fish most of two days.

I still have never caught a smallie. It's #1 on my fishing to do list.

A guy on the train was reading a dictionary and saying the words out loud "...someplace....Somerset....Somesuch..." He must have been up to something.

Little brown mouse head looking thing. They tie them just for that river. Boy Scout gave me one and I had a big blow up on it in the Yellow River over here but didn't get a hook set. Lost it in atree one day and it wasn't squirrel season. Looks like a mudler but about 3 times the sise and it floats. Throw it out and let it float.

Why is your friend anonymous? Is he in witness protection or something? I've heard of not naming a river or a bait but an angler? It is a nice fish though!

Simply someone who didn't want to be shown or named. Maybe he was supposed to be somewhere else. Who knows?

Reminds me of a joke I heard about the preacher who played hooky from mass one Sunday and caught the biggest trout of his life but couldn't tell anyone.
