Appomattox River Company held a Shad Tournament on the James River in Richmond and I got second place with 9 shad plus one for a flyfish only "handicap". The winner caught 12 fish. I usually do much better (20-30 fish by this time in the season), but I just couldn't find what they wanted. The water was like chocolate milk too. Anyway, I got an X-tools scale. Good times. Thanks Vic. Here's a picture of my biggest of the day 1lb 11oz.
