  1. NEW WORLD RECORD!!!!!!

    Holy crap. Must've felt like bringing up a cinder block. Pictures capture the moment well haha
  2. 10/20/17 Night

    Only took about 2 1/2 minutes. He only really fought when I got him up close and pulled drag a couple times. Seemed like a fat, happy (before I caught him) Rainbow. If I had to guess, it was all of 20-25 inches. He was fat. I have a short video I filmed with a GoPro in my mouth... while it is also out of frame is some parts it gives a better representation of the size and length. Not sure how to upload that one.

    Here is the bass and another view of the fat ol' bow
  4. 10/20/17 Night

    Headed down to the dam around 8PM. Slight wind and a handful of cars in the lot, nothing out of the ordinary for a Friday night. Fished leech patterns exclusively, and it turned out to be a very interesting night!! 1. Fishing a size 6 black leech I caught this ultra BIZARRE MUTANT fish.. Aside from its looks it seems quite healthy and swam pretty similar to any other. Caught a couple others 'normal' rainbows. 2. Switched up to another size 6 leech, this one in brown. Caught a few rainbows and then to my surprise a (white?) bass! Terrible pictures I know. (SEE SECOND POST FOR PIC) 3. To conclude the night I hooked up with what seemed to be a brick. Got it in my net and was wide-eyes to say the least. Hooked smack-dab in the middle upper lip. I was too focused on keeping the fish in the water and released and really didn't get any good pictures. The fish swam away on its own accord which was good to see. Was my personal best - topping the one I caught last week by quite some weight.

    I think we all know who failed kindergarten math class....
  8. Black Bear hit by Macks Creek

    I think it would be kind of cool to come across a bear while fishing... Until it mauls you. Still would be a neat experience though
  9. New to fishing in the Ozarks

    Welcome to the forums, Skyler! I've learned a ton on this site so you're definitely in the right place. Hopefully you can head out soon and target some fish! Feel free to ask any questions here or anywhere on the forums!
  10. Huge Crowds

    Gotcha. Fortunate enough to have a 'for life license so I assume this would cover. Probably won't head to Bennett until less populated seasons... or maybe not at all
  11. Favorite Tying Vise

    I've been using an old Regal vise that my father used a while back and it has been nothing but great for me. It's a little iffy on larger flies but I can still manage to lock them down. Will be upgrading to a vise with a larger jaw. Anyone have experience with a vise regarding larger streamers?
  12. Oklahoma Fly Company

    Awesome stuff you have in the works. Hittin' ya with a follow and will stay tuned!
  13. What's the Buzz

    I've never heard of Swan Creek (call me a young buck) until today when a fly shop guy told me about some big Smallies being caught there. Looks like a beautiful place to fish. anyone have experience fishing there in the Fall? Would be looking to fly fish in general. I'll check out the articles in this forum, but I'd love some general info about the watershed! Thanks

    Welcome to OAF! I never really got into Scuba; though it is definitely worth a try and is super cool if you enjoy the sport. There's some local places where you can learn Scuba on TRL, so it is worth a go. Some places have a "discovery scuba" trip that I've done in the past, they give an introductory experience and explain some of the basic instructions. Worth a go for sure! Keep us updated and glad to have you here
  15. 28-inch Spawning Colors Rainbow

    What a stunner of a Rainbow, nice work! Proper catch & release is encouraging, too. Hopefully I can land a few this weekend
