Default The Return of Bass Thumb

Ever since I hooked my first carp about a month ago, I've been tirelessly hunting for more. This past weekend, I saw a number of large, active bass and thought I'd take the ol' corn fly off.

I would like to announce the triumphant return of Bass Thumb (cue the dramatic music).

Ah, the memories ! It's like saltwater fishing, and the "red badge of courage". It's all good, too. Bass thumb, reel burn, fin punctures, leader cuts, Ooooooh, yeah ! Makes 'ya feel like you did something

Don't forget a good case of Monkey Butt from sand and water chafe.
