I got a few small smallmouth, five nice smallmouth but the last only got a picture in the water. You see I touched the fish and was about to lip it when she gave her head a quick shake and snapped my line. Her energy was spent since I couldn't horse a fish on an ultralight so I played her until she was tired. She flipped around and sat there in the water pointed back at the center of the river. I reached in and gave her a little push to wake her up and off she flicked into a deeper part of the river.
In hindsight the line could have weakened while I was messing around taking this picture of her.
