Little frustrating
 
Hot a sunny on the main lake and not to many smallmouth were coming up to play.Towards dusk the smallies were going nuts, busting baby kiacks on the surface.I tried 3/4 different top water flies and not even a splash from a fish.I figured a gurgler would work the best but nothing...
Gave up and went up steam, where getting some power pro out the water, helped me catch my biggest smallie of the evening.


I sometimes believe in Karma or at least it's fun to think about.
I thought I knew how to get the youtube picture without the link...forgot:(

Nope, gloomis shorestalker 7wt, Ross fly start reel.
First year going fly only and I'm used to bringing the fish right in with bait casting gear.
I know this rod is alittle heavy and I'm looking at maybe trying a 4wt(+\-) one.
Really want the one in the classified section, held back though.
