So i was out on the Neshannock today and i was nymphing. threw a cast upstream and thought i had a snag. could not get it loose so i walked up to where my line was and slowlystarted to pull it up. to my suprise there was a fish on the line!!! it didnt even budge as i tried to yank the line loose. it then just gradually swam downstream and hid under a big boulder where i could not pull it out. i tried to pull as hard as i could until i finally popped the hook out. what kind of fish was this??? didnt get a good enough look at it when i pulled it up. Catfish possibly? i was using a small black stone fly

Carp get really big too.

You definately saw a fish? I once hooked a big snapper I couldn't budge. I also accidentally hooked a beaver once on the WB of the DE. And once a snake grabbed a chub I had hooked.

There's all kinds of critters in our waters.

I hooked a muskrat once , had him right under the chin , he climbed the far bank and started up the hill into the thick rose bushes , so i put some side pressure on him and he turned , he then grabbed the line inhis front paws and bit the leader off.

lots of big carp and suckers in there. If your fly was broken off I could have put my hat in for a pike, but since it was just tossed I'll go with the former.

It's a large whatchamacallit? They give a hell of a fight and you never get them to shore or in your net.

"I am respected when I walk into any fly shop. Salespeople wait on me hand and waders. I once tried underwater casting just to see if I could. I am the most admired Fly Fisherman in the world. And when I fly-fish, I use the Orvis Access. Stay Fishing MF
