I found out about a pond only a couple miles from my house and decided to take out the buggy whip and see what was in it.





I also caught a good amount of bass. There were plenty of those green sunfish and they're always willing to come out and play.

Love those fish for their beauty!
Caught this one on a private pond I was evaluating last week near Krum, Texas. It had all kinds of wildlife around it!

Beautiful fish, folks.

I've been watching for one on craigslist or ebay. There seem to be plenty of 3 weights out there, but I'm really wanting to hold out for a 2wt.
