Beautiful smallmouth! Job well done. Glad to see you are enjoying your NuCanoe. I noticed the black thread knob which keeps dirt from getting into the threaded hole and thought I would let you know that my local Lowes had a plastic plug with a smooth head that you could push into the threaded locations that does not "attract" and catch fly line. Only those who own a NuCanoe will understand what I just said! : )
Fly fishing and fly tying are two things that I do, and when I am doing them, they are the only 2 things I think about. They clear my mind.
