Caught in Willacy County down in South Tx by my son, Jeremy V Jr. It was no big ol' monsters but was a fun fight

I caught this one on the Brazos River in Texas. I'm going back tomorrow to catch my 200lb alligator gar that broke off last week!

These are some pics of a buddy and myself with some gar caught on the fly. We are both are flyfishing nuts that love to catch anything that swims including the awesome rough species. His fish measured around 57.5 inches length and 21.5 in girth. There are larger fish in our area so expect more pics. All these South Texas fish released unharmed.
