Default went ultralight bassin' on my lunch break!!!

used my 7'6" 3wt and various colors of size 10 buggers for these little guys.... i actually had a HUGE bass (at least 18 inches) come chasing after one of the small bass while i was reeling it in... that would have put a crazyawesome bend in the little full flex rod.

anyway, it was a good lunch break...i must have caught at least 20 but here's just a few photos..... enjoy!

What a wonderful way to spend a lunch break

The company just built a new office and part of the landscaping includes a small pond. Two years from now and it's gonna be on.

Thanks for the pics
