SB~ 1st Fly trip 2011 - Equip breakdown x2 ~ 6-6-11

to the water @ 645-- very good timing...that's 15 min early than expected / usual..
I made 3 quick flies the night before... because I had None? left in the fly box form last season...must be somewhere..

__________________________
air 73
water 66
wind - NW 0-5 Calm breeze -- became zero wind..good fly conditions - Bad bugs conditions..
high @ 4pm
__________________________

in the water by 650 perfect tide ..

Had great casts right out the box -- didn't last long 30 casts in I had a terrible Fly reel malfunction....3 seasons of abuse and my Pflueger Trion quit trion...and ground to a halt..
I knew I should switched it last year when it was giving me trouble @ the end of the season..ground the line back on it it...and had to get the spinner out -- should have had one my MANY back up reels on hand. .. but didn't.. Not even a bump on the Fly...

casted for about an hour....with nada.. no signs of life -- no bait either....as The clock rounded 8pm -- I was thinking maybe this is a lost cause...not even 2 seconds later -- bam -- fish on like be electrocuted to attention...landed a nice 24" schoolie...

now I have the stink on it.. repeated the same process in the same area...fish were out a little further than I guess my fly was reaching...2 casts more and I another fish on -- a Nice one to -- about keeper size but he got off 20 ft away..
had a nice bite going for an hour...managed 3 more fish and a few hits...when on the last Fish my new reel broke -- new for 2011 Shimano Sahara 3000fd-- 20-30 fish - on this thing since Spring and the gears broke inside..I felt it break as I was reeling a 20" fish in....after that it also ground to a halt.. still tried to fish it but it was just shot and made me miss 2 hits and hit hitched ..ad another one to the scrap heap - I had my doubts about it from the beginning...I knew I should have gotten rid of it - oh well...

enjoyed the beautiful sunset / sky as the bugs were relentlessly trying to find away through my bug spray shields...

done @ 9pm - still good light with No clouds -- extra time..is just the best. NO blues rocks too..a great 2hrs.

total~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
4 Schoolies Bass ( 18-24")
1 Nice fish on half way in .. then off...
3-4 missed bites
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
