Spent 10 days in my Fat Cat down in Rhode Island with my good friend. We had a blast. Bob specialized in catching Yellow Perch while I concentrated on the 10" Bluegills. I caught them on top and on nymphs. I got them in 2 feet of water under overhanging shoreline vegetation and I got them suspended 4 or five feet down in 20 feet of water. These little guys were an absolute delight to catch. Every once in a while the perch and bluegill parade would be interrupted by 3 or 4 pound largemouths and 2 pound "smallies". I also got a few Chain Pickerel. [inline "The Lay Of The Land.jpg"] Had an adventure with the seams splitting on my 6 year old Fat Cat but I was able to sew it up and carry on. Here's some pictures for your perusal. Shoreline Bluegill Laying the perfect sidearm flycast under the branches and having a 10" 'gill smashing the spider was an absolute delight!

Nice report and great pics. Glad the Suzy Homemaker stitching job held up for you. Maybe you have found a new vocation...tube stitcher. That is really pretty country. Even more so when the fall colors come on.
