Pteronarcys californica

The giant Salmonflies of the Western mountains are legendary for their proclivity to elicit consistent dry-fly action and ferocious strikes.

27" brown trout, my largest ever. It was the sub-dominant fish in its pool. After this, I hooked the bigger one, but I couldn't land it.

Outside of the first few episodes and their freak of the week plot lines that seem held over from seasons one and two the majority of season seven is one long, continuous story that keeps upping the ante and ties a lot of all the seasons of Smallville together. Everything from the Indian caves to even why Lionel Luthor (John Glover) brought that particular castle brick by brick back from Scotland.

There are plenty of CW gimmicks to get through though. The sappy love ballads that populate the end of practically every episode and the occasional guest star like Christina Milian who is there for no other reason but sell her latest album and “stretch” as a performer.

This season did pack several surprises and Superman guest stars. The stories that featured Clark’s biological mother, Lara-El (Helen Slater), opened a lot sores for Clark and her entering the mythos of Smallville was much appreciated and long over due. Helen Slater who once played Supergirl joins Christopher Reeve and Margot Kidder in adding yet another character and cameo from Superman’s long history with television and the movies. Marc McClure (Superman: the Movie’s Jimmy Olson) also appears on Smallville along with Lois and Clark’s Dean Cain. This stunt casting could be seen as obtrusive to the story at hand but on Smallville it works, as it always has.

Jason,

If we can't get that quack oldredbarn to settle down you may have to whack him with your banning stick!!! I just saw him last week sitting on his front porch with his grandfather's 12-gauge shooting holes in to passing Toyota's...;) He was using old double-ought...Ouch!
