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.

    Don't feel alone as far as the bass are concerned, they are doing anything on Smith. It has not been a good spring so far on the lake for the spots or largemouth.
