    Default Orange spot

    orangespot.jpgCaught this little gem out of a small creek on a size 18 midge larva. Only caught a dozen or so of these in my life, so it's always a treat when I do. I catch a lot of hell from my wife, brother, and my friends for fishing for little fish. I say, who cares how big they are when they look like this?

    Beautiful! There are some of those around here, but I haven't caught one in many years, and none on a fly rod yet. Good job by you!

    I catch those down on the creek by my house. You seem to only catch them in the creek or at least very few seem to be in ponds. Wonder why that is? They are the prettiest sunfish by far. Can't find a good pic of one in my collection. Nice share, thanks.

    Thanks guys. I've only caught them in creeks as well. The creek where that little guy was caught also holds some surprisingly large bass. Had what I figure was a 4 1/2 or 5 pounder break me off one day. Went back better prepared and caught about ten from 2-4 pounds, which is pretty unheard of around these parts. bass1.jpg
