Frist Stillwater LM
 
I don't do much flyrodding for bass, but tried a little yesterday, mixed in with my conventional tackle. I had my 9wt with me, intending to try for some carp, while out on a NYC reservoir. The carp I spotted all spooked, so I tied on a Clouser-type pattern I tied (white saddles, peacock herl, and a spot of red marabou up front) to cast a bit to the bass, which were just about ready to spawn. Many were already on beds.

This 4lb+ fish was caught in above a weedbed in 12FOW. This is my first stillwater LM on the fly and my first fish on this rod. I thought the 9 might be overkill, but I needed every bit of it to muscle this fish out of the weeds. It did make casting the weighted fly in the wind tolerable as well.

Nice bass there. Looks like it was a beautiful day out on the water too. By NYC, do you mean you caught the thing in Central Park?
