Proof of Three species on da fly. LM basses would not hold still for the grab and grin...The dropper w chartrouse accent ruled the day. It was all fun and games on the 3 weight. Brim, black crappie, and shellcracker.

Knowing how much you loves dem brims I knew you'de like the post.
It is a 6-7 acre pond with terrific fertility. Only had the privilege of fishing it twice. I am trying to wrangle another invite soon.
I had never caught 4 pond species on a fly. That's what a dropper will do for you when there is no top water activity.
The water color was very green, almost w a milky tint. Not at all usual. There had been no rain. Could have been the heat combined w the cattle. Clarity was about 12". That made the fly choice w some sort of chartruese a solid producer.

Do you know if the owner uses a pond dye ? They make dyes in green,blue and black...it really helps to keep the light from penetrating the water...thus cutting down on weed growth....If I ever get the weeds and Lily pads under control in my pond the very next thing will be to incorperate the use of a dye to keep the weeds at bay in the future!

The "milky green" you describe could also be an abundance of lime (which would also explain the fertility) ....niether of which is a bad thing.
