Fished Carmi this evening and was real slow. Did manage this nice pike and had a few follows as well. This was the softest pike take on an 8inch fly I have ever seen! Thought it was a small bass till it took off like a bat outta hell when I set the hook. Have to say one of the coolest takes I have ever had. It is a nice time to be out as the leaves are changing and falling. The air is crisp and the sounds of geese fill the air and the sweet smell of wood stoves burning.....ahh I love fall in VT! I was fishing one of my deciver patterns in grey shad color in about 3ft of water. Should be good this week as the feed bag should be in full swing tight lines and tie flies!
