Sept. Slab of the Month Entry: Black Drum

Here's another case of "I couldn't said better myself."


Chesapeake Bay Black Drum caught on an 11 weight fly rod. Fish was 92 pounds and landed in 45 minutes caught on a black half and half on the rocks. 1 of 2 fish landed that day and biggest I believe ever caught on a fly in the Bay. Leader was 6 feet of 40lb fluorocarbon so not in contention for IGFA record books. Thought you might like this as a slab of the month!

Caught by Colby Trow owner of Mossy Creek Fly Fishing shop in Harrisonburg, VA in August on the Chesapeake Bay. Also pictured Colby Trow's girlfriend Jessica Tomey.

Do I sense another guiding option for the shop? Satillite operation on the middle peninsula perhaps?

Agreed. Having a pretty girl in the pic a bonus.

There is a fish in that picture? I think the catch is on his right arm.

Thanks for all the kind words dudes! My girl was kind enough to pose with me and the slob. I had to throw my clothes away because of the 4 inch deep snail trail of ectoplasm it left on my lap and chest.
