Got to hung out with a new fishing buddy today.  He's a pond specialist (at least to me) so he was my guide for the day, I drove he pointed.  It was a cold cloudy and spotty rain day, but we rode it out.  Hey, come on, are you gonna let some dreary weather stop you from a day of fishing?   ;)

Anyway, we had a blast.  I got to catch my first biggest bluegill ever on a fly rod.  My buddy said to wait until the weather warms up.  There're bigger ones in there... :o...can't wait.  Pulled in a few one-pounder or so largemouths, and a few crappies.  Had a good one that snapped my 4x tippet.   o-o

Took a picture of a bass that regurgitated his breakfast of little bass fries.  He spat a whole one out on the way to hand.  Sorry, it's a little blurry, but you can just make out another little dead guy still stuck in it's throat.  8)

What kind of fly was that???


to be honest, i don't know.   :-[  it came in a box of mixed flies i got cheap off of ebay, and was the only one of it's kind.  it got a pretty good thrashing that day, so it's not in the best shape now.

the hook size looks to be 14.  the thing that you don't see is the forked white tail.
