    Nice. I remember catching a bunch of those and snapper blues at the Outer Banks years ago. Good eating and good times.

    It was triangular shaped, and this particular snake was the surliest critter I've ever come across. That pic was taken with a 10x zoom - I didn't know what it was, and it was VERY aggressive.


    According to the OK biologist I talked to, a triangular head does not guarantee it is a venomous snake. He said that there are only three kinds of poisonous snakes in OK - various species of Rattlesnakes, Copperheads, and Cottonmouths. This was obviously not the first two, but at the time I I thought possibly the third so I stayed clear.

    He subsequently ID'ed it as a Black Rat Snake from the markings, habitat, and area where it was found. It is in a part of OK that is outside of cottonmouth territory.

    Googling Cottonmouths and Black Rat Snakes yields good images, and it looks like a Black Rat Snake to me. Sure was a mean one, though.....

    I spent the last 48 hours in 4 trout streams in North Georgia.
    Caught my limit the first day and released everything after that.
    The Callasaja (actually that one is just over the line in NC), Betty Creek in Dillard, War Woman Creek, and the Chatooga river.


    The Chatooga

    There is a toad (huge fish) in Betty creek. I hooked onto something that broke off after spooling out 20+ yards of line. I'm going back to Betty. I want to see that fish.

    Wade caught a crab while fishing off a pier in Padre Island. Need to get the pic off the camera.

    Stopped at Bethany Lakes park on the way in to work this morning to see if I could hook on to something in the 15 minutes I had to spare... sadly not this morning. However in a week's time I'll probably be headed to Echo Lake or Fallen Leaf Lake just south of Tahoe and enjoying some alpine lake fishing in 60 degree weather.

    Litespeed, lasts a lifetime.

    Specialized Tarmac, lasts a lifetime, or until it breaks.

    Bream and crappie are better, but it's fine, especially when doused down with a good rub and thrown on the grill.

    What I've been occupying my time with the last few days.
    It's a 1950s Japanese bamboo multi-rod I bought off of the ebay for thirty bucks. It was in rough shape but the wood was in fine order. I stripped it, gave it couple of new dip coats of spar varnish and wound new guides in place. The next step is to wrap the handle in rattan.

    Depending on which way you put the handle on and which tip you choose it can either be a five foot eight inch spinning or casting rod, or an eight foot six inch 4wt fly rod.

    Not at all....especially good on the grill.
    As Allen said, crappie and bream are better, but just about any bass makes a tasty dinner.

    On our last Cub Scout pack campout, we took the boys fishing at Clements Scout Ranch. Everyone was catching sunfish and tilapia. My youngest son loaned both his pole and my pole to other scouts, and fished with my collapsible lightweight rod. He ended up catching 10 fish in under an hour. Apparently karma likes to fish.

    Nice rod Allen, but I expect no less of you than some crazy convertible antique rod.

    You're on.
    I've got 3 4wt rods if you need a spare (and a few others).

    I've got two of those rods. I've only refinished one. I can't decide if I want to refinish the other and hawk it on Ebay to pay for my fishing habit, or fix up the other handle into a Steampunk Lightsaber and ebay that.
