consolation prize

  1. Tried a farm pond for bluegills today and caught a few in the 7-8" range on my 4 wt rod. Then a very nice bass hit the red ant (size 14 hook) I was using. I would guess it's weight at 3 - 3 1/2 pounds, but unfortunately on the third tail-walking sequence the fly came loose. :mad:
    I switched to a size 10 foam grasshopper and did manage to land this little one as a consolation prize, so my day was somewhat salvaged.

  2. A day out is always better than a day in...at least you got to feel the big boy tug on you for a bit ;) and now you know where he lives...
