    I took my 12 year old out the other night to try and put her on a flatty ( I've been doing more family flatty guideing than fishing lately :roll_eyes:) Rigged up with a 4" gill on a 5/0 khale and tossed it down stream to a fallen tree. About 20 mins. later the clicker went off. She set the hook and fought it to the boat. It was only 20" , but to her it might as well been 50". She's caught many 5-8lbs. channels but never a flatty,a new speices to put under her belt. . Now my other daughter wants to catch one, I may not get to reel one in this year but it's still worth it.:wink:
