Spotted bass fly - green popper.
I just wanted to post this picture. I caught this bass last August on a fly I bought at Bass Pro Shops. That fly didn't make it past the afternoon. It was made cheaply and busted on a back cast. I've been out fishing the past few days. It's kind of been the same thing as last year. I've been catching a lot of small to medium size bass but every now and then I catch a large smallmouth or largemouth. This year, I have done well on bass. I need to start taking more pictures. I landed about 10 nice bass of which I haven't even snapped a picture. Then there was the other day when I couldn't land those two nice bass because I had to try and dig my camera out.
I'm still selling flies on ebay. Mostly Gurglers. I started collecting license plates to put a wall in the garage. Which means, I can go "Mantiquing". I've landed a few large bass this year. Nothing phenomenal but when I read some blogs and see photos of some pretty good size bass, it always makes me wonder if I'm going after those smallmouth and spotted bass in a proper method.
Guess I'll have to post another entry with pics after I've collected my thoughts for the day.
