Bass on the fly

Got a chance to fly fish a pond in north central PA today in the afternoon between trout fishing sessions.. Pulled out my 8 wt. and tried out some flies from previous fly swaps.

Got this largemouth on a zudbubler tied by gillage from the panfish/bass flyswap. Also landed a big white crappy on another popper style fly. Tried a store bought popper but missed about 4 takes. I think the weed guard was the problem. Gillage's zudbubler didn't look all refined like the store bought painted ones, but it had a much deeper BLOOP sound and hooked the fish much easier. A great tie. It's great to put the swap flies to use.

A great way to spend the day.
