Incredible fish! I was proud of my personal best on fly rod with a 3 lb the other day... guess I need to raise my standards. Also, how about those gurglers? Even with the 3-D, glow in the dark, and other new stuff coming out its simple foam flies getting the fish. Awesome and congratulations.

That is a nice fish. Probably had to use climbing rope for a leader to keep that meat head on there.

This trip was kinda last minute and I forgot I didn't have any good leaders for the 8 wt and turning over big bugs. So I made a couple up just 30" of 30lb, 24" of 20lb, and 24" of 12lb flouro. Add in the perfection loop and the fly knot and that's a lot of knots between me and the fish. I was worried about it every time he took another dive away from the boat.

WOW!!!

My son caught a post spawn 26.5" bass that weighed over 8 lbs., so it was not as fat your bucket mouth. I haven't read what others have posted, but I would guess in the 7-8lb range. Great work, and thanks for posting the fly, too!

Nice fish! I too use a 8wt, 'Loomis CrossCurrant. Need the big sticks when playing with LM and Stripers! Once you go down the path with big bass it's hard think about trout in summer when all those bass are calling!

I'm kinda proud of that fly.

I understand that there is nothing new about using a Gurgler for Bass, but I did think up the materials for this one.

AZ Diamond Hair for the tail is not normal, and it brings a lot of movement and sparkle.

The long grey hackle is a bit unusual, and over the pearl white sparkle chenille looks very shad like when wet.

To me it's a perfect fly for tricking bass that are chasing shad balls.
