A report from Eric for mikescatchreport.com
Hey Mike, this pass weekend SteveL called me to see if I wanted to go fly fishing with him on Saturday but I was at a birthday party so I told him that I would try to make it but I ran out of time and couldn’t go. So I went fishing on Sunday instead and caught the morning rising tide.

As I was walking down the beach I saw two large tails about 7 yards out from shore. I was pumped and ready for some action. I walked down to the point where we fished when you and SteveT were here.

I was trying different color flies for about an hour but no takers. Then I said to myself that I should use the good luck fly, the one that you tied.

After about two not bad casts, Mr. O’io slammed into the fly and took off. He took all of the fly line and about 50 yards of backing. He gave me a decent fight and I tagged, measured and weighed Mr. O’io--he was 18 ½ inches long and around 2 ½ pounds.
