Went out on friday and caught a few small bass and a couple of brim....

Image

Josh's Murdich minnow....

Image

Image

A couple other flies from Drake swaps....

Image

Image

Image

even caught a brim on a striper fly....

Image

and a smaller version of Josh's fly....

Image

this one was a pig!!

Image

this one too...

Image

A few on a simple black bugger....

Image

Image

Image

Image

Most were pretty solid fish....

Image

and would even put a pretty good bend in a 7wt.

I wanted to try out some of Bamboo 10's brim bugs....but I forget that they were in my truck :twisted:

I'm sure they would have been the ticket....these fish were all very spooky in clear shallow water and those unweighted bugs woulda been perfect! I had to use a low side arm cast keeping the line as low to the water as possible from a good distance and lay them out with a 12ft leader plus tippet!

Damn I can't wait till popper season again! :D

Screw Popper Season.......... Hell, I like the big ass thick gills that you are taking now.
Couple of those chubs look like between 3/4 and 1 pound.

Take a hint from Backwoods Joe . Chain eye Bully !!!!
