Let me explain the grass. This fellow kept knocking my rod in to some very nasty nettles (with his head). I finally gave up on posing him and gave him a "time-out" in this tuft of grass. Very fiesty hombre! He measured 17" -- I'm assuming he's a holdover. There are a few fish like this in the headwaters of Buck Run. Fishing in there with a long rod is nightmarish -- I'm really serious about the nettles.
