Default Great afternoon to be outside flyfishing today

Since it was nice here in Mississippi this afternoon, I went fishing. Took just the flyrod and one popping bug. Caught ~20 smallish bass, lots of bluegills, and one shellcracker. Fun fun.

Great catches! I've been fishing quite a bit lately but the fish are still deep even thought we have had very mild warm weather. Shouldn't be long though, gonna try again tomorrow.

I've started looking for my crappies because the temps have jumped. Little bit breezy but it's Oklahoma and that's OK. Gotta get used to it or learn to knit. Got some dink bass, nothing over 10" and a bunch of mediocre bluegills. Maybe another week. Good news is that nobody has been lurking around my regular spots.

Went back out yesterday (Thursday) afternoon and caught ~15 more bass and a pile of bluegills. All were on the popping bug in the photo, and all were released. I've fished with it for 2 days now, and it still works well. Here is one of the larger bass:
