Default 24" Ohio Largemouth - Hexagenia Hatch

Nighttime video, but good enough that you can tell that this bass is a good size for small public lake. I just tied this new fly an hour or so before fishing. I think I will tie a few more, now. The fly is loosely patterned after Harry Murray's Mr. Rapidan Skater. I will post fly pics in a day or two.

All I could see when I set the hook was this hole open up in the water under my fly. A bit of a gentle slurp, until I set the hook. I was sure the bass was going to throw my barbless hook, but good tension and a moderate drag saved tippet and photo op.
