The gills were hungry, and I took the chance to snap a few of the more colored-up males.
Turtles were out in force on all the platforms.
Bright and aggressive. But the single FBC that started the day, ended it as well.
The fatboy on the day
One of 3 bass on the day. All were tight to the edges raiding the bluegill beds.
An great morning on the water. With the only downside being my forgetfulness with the correct reel/line.

A Days Wages
For a Successful Day on the Water
The replacements, after the carnage of an afternoon chasing bluegills.
Always nice to replace successful flies.

Cabelas 7' 6" 6WT , a handful of Mule Deer Divers & Foam Butt Caddis and a spool of 8lb tippet was all that went with me.
#4 MDD's are a staple for me when hunting light bass. But today, they brought up the biggest of the gills.
This guy earned my respect, crushing a brand new Foam Butt Caddis and fighting like a 3lb largemouth
While I cannot say I miss them any less......there are few things better than the simplicity of bluegills and poppers to take ones mind to a better place.
