  1. How on earth did you coax a menhaden to take a fly? Did you floss it?

    1. If you use small enough tippet and little nymphs they take them in along with whatever else is in their path.

  2. They're all fascinating, but if I was selecting a favorite it would be the Plecostomus. There's just something about the pattern that is appealing to me. The fins are spectacular too. I'd bet you can't pick just one.
