I received these photos in an email from my friend Colin McKeown, host of and producer of The New Fly Fisher TV show. He was pretty excited to tell me about a fish he’d just caught. I can see why:
Just finishing my northern Ontario trip, currently north of Sudbury. I caught an Ontario fly-fishing record-smallmouth: 22 inches long and approximately 7 pounds. Caught with Orvis Helios 6-weight on 10-pound tippet and successfully released. Bass ate a new fly known as the Gamechanger.
