Curtis Gross, from the E-vite post.

This was my second time to attend the Sunfish Spectacular and had a great time. I was hoping to shout “fish on” at least as many times as Puck, but alas that did not work out as planned. How does Puck do that? I had a great conversation with Stacy Lynn about ‘all things fly fishing’. I was one of the last to leave on Saturday and the owner stopped by and advised me to cast my popper in a productive spot that yielded a nice 2 pound bass to end the day.
