I caught a new species on the fly rod...Gizzard Shad. The day had started out as a trip for panfish. I went out to a local lake at first light to play with some bluegills. I heard a bit of splashing down in the creek below the lake's dam. I went down to investigate and found water filled with good sized Gizzard Shad. I forgot all about the blue gills and spent a few hours with these guys. Caught a mess of them up to about 18"-20" long. They put a serious bend in my 5wt Hardy glass rod.
