Blustery Day Bass
Wind and bass bugs are never a good mix, and even more so when basketball-sized pockets between lily pads are your target. When the pockets were hit....thee bass were aggressive. When they were missed....50% of the time you were fighting to retain your fly. I arrived with WOGs. I left with the one tied on my line about a dozen fish later. The highlight was an honest 5lb plus fish on a green WOG. It jumped 1/2 dozen times and let me get it 5ft from the bank....and then promptly broke me off with 10# tippet. Not the best feeling in the moment, but the fight was fun as hell. I will return with more WOGs!
