First catch

Posted 06-26-2011 at 08:24 PM by mbphotos54

Well, I had the chance to get to the pond for a few hours today, I was hoping to have some good luck but this is fishing. By the time I got the the pond the shore I could cast from was already crowded so I was limited to one 50ft swatch of shore, no biggie. about 3 fly changes in I decided to try a popper, wasnt sure what to expect being the biggest fly I have casted so far. few casts in I watched the popper get a hit! was one of the biggest bluegills I have seen in along time, big enough it was hard to get my fingers around it top to bottom.. no more rambling here the pic! I use barbless more for my own safty while learning so was an easy release.

Yep Im hooked!
