When we got our tax return back, the wife let me buy some more fly fishing gear. I was going to buy a 7 wt Orvis Recon outfit, but figured I could get a 4 wt Echo Carbon XL and a 7 wt Echo Ion with Lamson Liquid reels for a little less.
I've been fishing the 7 wt quite a bit hoping to catch a really big bass, but the best I could do was a couple of 16" fish.
I took the 4 wt out this morning. I caught these bass and some small bluegills on a #8 red and white popper.
Once the sun came up I switched to a #8 chartreuse/white closer and Cath this bluegill, a small bass, and some smaller bluegills.
The bass were really fun on the 4 wt.
