I got off work a little early and we had sandwiches for dinner so I had some time to fish. My phone weather app said the wind was blowing 12 mph out of the southeast so I decided to take the 6 wt. again.
Got to the pond and it was dead calm. Should of taken the 3 wt.
Several people were fishing conventional bass stuff, soft plastics and 1 guy had a buzzbait. Nobody was catching.
I caught one small bass and had a couple of blowups on a Dahlberg diver.
I moved over to a shallow bank and hooked this 13".
Then I caught bass/green sunfish on about 5 straight casts.
Most of the bass in the pond are healthy and chunky if not too big, but this ne was scrawny.
I managed to lose a fly and I blame Robert(just kidding). I bought some gink and put it on a muddler minnow. I had it in my hand and dropped it while putting my old fly back in my box.
The darn thing fell right at my feet but when I went to pick it up I couldn't find it. The grass was maybe 1/2" tall. I looked for 15 minutes. It must of fallen into a time warp.
On the plus side I have been catching more fish than others out there. Not that I am a better fisherman, but the pond has got a lot of pressure from conventional tackle all spring and summer and I'm the only person fly fishing. I think the different presentation is a big plus.
