Please Note: PayPal is having a problem with the Handling Charge, which should be $4 for every order. For some reason, a few orders are not getting the charge. I have contacted PayPal, but until the problem is corrected I will send a PayPal invoice following any order that does not reflect the $4 handling charge.
When you place your order, please look at the PayPal shopping cart contents to see if the $4 Handling charge is included. If not, please click on the button below. That will make a separate PayPal invoice unnecessary (saving time for both of us).
Handling charge - $4
Zak's contest submission
by Zachary Brown
My smallest fish so far
I actually started fishing with some of my own blue yarn creations before this contest started, so of course I was quite interested when Chris announced the blue fly challenge. In the interest of trying to keep things nice and neat, in addition to apparent issues with photo sizes, I will have most of my photos uploaded to my photobucket account.
Here is the link to the pictures --> http://smg.photobucket.com/user/Beowulf31486/library/Blue%20fly%20challenge
Unfortunately the smallest fish that I caught managed to partially swallow the size 26 fly I was using. I was forced to kill it in order to both put it out of its misery and to recover the fly. Sadly there was no way that he would have been able to survive even if I had cut the line since it was trapped in his gullet. It would have starved to death long before the hook would have rusted away. Any help in identifying what species of fish it was would be appreciated. I think it might be a Streamline Chub. I will be posting a picture with a ruler placed against my hand where I was holding it to try to get as best a comparison as I can for its size. It was a little over 2 inches long that much is certain.
