21.0" / 4.0 lb. Smallmouth Bass caught by Tim Panagos fishing on Friday August 21, 2009 at 19:50 near Sumerduck in Fauquier County, Virginia (VA), United States North America using a Hand tied chartruese and white dumdbell streamer

On a late August afternoon I fished Snakecastle with a 5" hand-tied chartruese and white dumbell streamer.
Having fished this section for the past 35 years I went straight to a favorite hole. The water was especially warm, low but not to bad. On my third cast a 21 inch Smallie boiled up from the depths , inhaled the streamer and the battle was on. To my surprise the fish quickly surrendered. I suppose the recent heat combined with low water was to much of a strain. I carefully revived the old hen in a nearby riffle and watched her ease back into the depths no worse for the wear.
This is my favorite run of river. Peaceful and beautiful year round.
Access is getting pretty tough. recently leased property by a local huntclub has shut me down this year. I would join the club just to fish. No harm in that. I would skip Fall Winter and Spring for the privilage of Summer access.
Anyone know anything about the Southern Fauquier Hunt Club?
