Sb ~ 1st Bass on the FLY 2012 ~ 5-24-12

Sb ~ 1st Bass on the FLY 2012 ~ 5-24-12

prepped everything the night before...took me ahour to find all of my fly gear..
Got a good close parking spot too..every minute helps for the after work DASH... on the way to the while going through a green light..Got the finger by a guy @ a stop sign...not sure why...that's why there's a STOP sign there - you can't just go when you want....you didn't have the right of way Moby D.



made good time. to the water @ 6:45
in the water @ 6:50

------------------------------------
Wind: zero
Water: near 60
Air: 64
Low @ 8:30
------------------------------------

1.5hrs to fish..

watched those powerful T-storms all day.. could hear them through the Bunker style walls @ work..

Saw a Split in the storms which opened perfectly for my time @ the water...I could hear and see the storms just west and North as them rumbled over the sound..

Very calm - mostly zero wind..perfect for my 1st Fly outting..easy casting.

Took a half hr until I had any signs of life...a calico crab hundled into a rock with a small 2" fluke next to it. Lots of Salad floating by..a few i thought were fsih bumps..

then I finally had an actual hit.. nice feeling - gets you fishing a little harder once you get that 1st hit..
another 1/2 hr passes with nada..until a fish follwed the fly all the way in and takes a big swipe/ turn @ the last moment..missed it.

another 1/2 hr passes..now in the final moments and very end of the tide..a fish grabs the fly and runs @ me..got em' hooked up. nice little fight from a small schoolie..

Gave it a few more casts until the top half my Orvis goes flying off...time to go..reeled it and the line in called @ 8:35..

always just glad to have any fish on the fly or even interested in it.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Total:
1 Schoolie Bass (18")
1 Follow Swiper
1 Bump
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
- tons of steamers just rolling in the tide and on the shore? weird - I guess the gulls were full or the clams were bad...picked a few up and they were pissing @ me..so they were alive...
- crazy gnats ~ fished with the hood up peeking out , resisted uses the bug spray
- not much bait around me @ all..


really nice night ~ glad I went.. Started poring as soon I got home..perfect.
