Went to a nearby warm water river for some pan fish on the fly....got in the water to see an amazing sight. Huge schools of large "tailing" Gar in the shallow riffles and rapids presumably spawning or feeding. I could wade within several feet of fish over 3'! I threw a few of my normal flies for bluegill and trout with no success, and I only had a 4wt. I'd like to take my 8wt back out... Any suggestions for flies? Do Gar fight? How do I handle them? Are they worth the effort? They're certainly the largest freshwater fish (other than catfish) that I'm likely to ever encounter.
