Morning WOG Report
This morning brought mid 80's with a light wind. The wind was substantial enough to push all of the algae to one side of the pond, making one half fishable for top water flies, and the other half a mess.
The Black WOG proved to be the bug of choice.
Oddly enough, only one gill came to hand. It was as if the water was void of them.
About a dozen bass in all, but most of them pounders. Three decent fish did choose to chase the WOG though.
All-n-All a good morning.

I seldom ever post negative on products. However, after 7.......again 7 Wogs broke off pulling them loose from lily pads & two bass well over 3 lbs broke off......and all at the knot?
I am the furthest thing from a gear snob. I build all of my warmwater leaders with standard Stren mono. And nearly all of my warm and cold water tippet is Stren Flourocast line. Swear by it. Landed more 20"+ trout on 4lb Flourocast to begin to doubt it. But I ran out of both 8 & 10lb on my last outing and could not find replacements. So while at Basspro I figured I would try the Maxima Ultragreen. Having had good luck years ago with Chameleon for steelhead out west, I figured it would fill in nicely.
I was wrong.
Thinking maybe the 10# was a bad spool...I switched to the 8#. Same results.
One things for certain.....I know what I will be using this winter to tie up Xmas decorations.
My usual warm-water leader and tippet
This one miraculously held the knot.
