It's been so hot and windy, with winds blowing up to 25 mph out of the southwest, that I headed inland to fish. I made a trip to the Roanoke, Middle and Cashie rivers with Bob Smithwick, a world class bluegill fisherman who ties his own flies. We used a foam bodied popper and Tail-End-Charlie to catch at least 60 fish. We probably would have caught 100 to 200 before 10 a.m. if I hadn't been working the camera. The fish are everywhere along the banks and the big cypress and black gum trees provide plenty of shade.
