Gurgling Frogs and Bass
A couple of hours to troll the banks in the August heat, seemed like the right time to tie on a frog. One Gurgling Frog carried the night for a half dozen top-water crashing bass.

The RP Starling
The "Ralph's Little Pine" accounted for a couple during the heat of the day.

The largest fish of the day was a 22" bow with a broom for a tail and huge kype. A long fight and being alone precluded a pic but it ended the day in good fashion. He took the "Little Crappie Fly" under an indicator.

Fish took everything from dry flies, to wets, streamers and nymphs. A great day on water with not a soul in sight.

But the excitement of the trip was a 40+ inch span 50-60lb Cow-nosed Ray. A 30 minute fight on an 8' medium action rod and 20lb line. The ray would be assisted back into the wash and I would be assisted towards a chair and a beer.
No flies were harmed during this fishing trip.
