Hit a local small pond on the north shore yesterday and today . Yesterday went around 1:30PM and caught 2 small bass and 2 12'pickerel mostly on black beadhead crystal buggers. Today I went there around 2 this time with my brother who is new to flyfishing.He wound up with 1 sm. bass and 1 pickerel . Not bad for his second time with the flyrod.While I was helping him with his casting I was experimenting with a couple flies I had tied. One was a black bunny clouser with a rattle which I was able to put in front of a nice little bass around 2 lb. I then tied on a black beadhead crystal bugger that I had tied with a little long hackle at the tail and was able to land another chunk around the same size. A couple casts later I paused the fly to talk to my brother and the next strip I hooked up with what felt like another decent bass but it stayed down and to my surprise turned out to be a fat brown bullhead ! A first for me on the fly. Definitely some fun on the 6 wt. Things are finally starting to warm up a little.

Nice report....I'm gettin' the itch and a twitch now!

And yes, perhaps for 2009 can you add a map and coordinates for all your spots. This way your reports will be more complete and understandable. For example, here is a secret pond near me. I am able to share this as both ponds house large angry resident alligators who scare off the faint hearted....especially one's with bait!

I knew I should have made time to be there! I'm not surprised, its pretty shallow there. You must have been day dreaming for a bit after your cast. Wed afternoon I'm there rain or shine.
