My wife was out of town for the majority of this weekend, so after playing Mr Mom for two days straight, I was ready to get out for a bit. Had time for about an hour before dark so headed out to a local pond and was glad to see things starting to heat up. The bass in this pond has perfected the art of busting bait on the shore. If you get there early or right before sunset it happens about every 15 -20 minutes. Its pretty cool to see it happen and a well placed fly in the vicinity will almost always get a strike. It wasn't in full swing yet and I was typically on the other side of the pond from the action, but did get one decent one and crappie.

As a bonus, there were some bugs dipping into the water which had the gills all wound up. Tied on an adams and got a strike just about every cast. Made for a good end the the weekend and spending some QT with the kids.

JT, nothing to speak of size wise, not dinks, but no mongruntus gills either. Caught a few hand-sized last year, so there are a few swimming around. I think the healthy bass and crappie population keeps them from being overpopulated.

Brad, you will enjoy tying and fishing them. Lots of different color combinations to play around with. I saw some pink fibers the other day that had me thinking about a rainbow trout fly...
