It would be hard to beat last weeks fishing.  Pete and Sandra fished with me for four days on the James and Staunton rivers.  Out of the four days Pete put two fish over 20 inches in the boat on poppers.  The best fish of the summer was caught by Sandra on the Staunton river.  I saw the fish cruising around in a large eddy and quickly got the boat in position.  After pointing the fish out to Sandra she put the fly in the perfect spot and made the perfect hook set.  I believe I held my breath until the big bronzeback landed in the net.  I knew it was a big smallmouth bass and measured it has soon as I lipped the fish.  The big girl measured 22 inches on the nose which is the biggest of the summer.DSC_3006 DSC_3014
