  1. #1

    Default First cast bass video (short)

    Learning how to work the little video camera and fly rod at the same time.

    Excellent video and nice bass to boot! Were you using a tripod to hold the camera?

    Nice job on the video and fish! One piece of advise though, grabbing a fly rod at the middle with a fish on is asking for trouble. Hold the grip and lift the rod til it's at 90 degrees so the flyline ends up in your free hand. One solid kick from a fish while your holding the middle of the rod and you'll be in the market for a new tip.
    The best way to a fisherman's heart is through his fly.

    Thanks. I actually made a monopod with a spike on the end. Not perfect, but quicker to set up when the ground is soft. I will probably go to a tripod when the ground hardens this summer.

    100% correct to point out. I was still trying to get the wind knots out of the flyline when the bass decided to straighten out the line for me. It took a little off-guard.

    It is always windy around here. It can be a bear to cast, but I can often go with a heavier leader/tippet since the wind masks it. I think I need to put a piece of tape around the mic to keep the wind noise down. This pond is a bit of a cheater's pond, because it regularly produces big crappie, bluegill and 6-8 lb. bass.

    That's not a cheater, thats a honey hole

    The boys caught about 12 bluegill tonight mostly on wax worms, but I let them pull in about 4 bluegill off my 3wt. My son picked out a #10 Dave's hopper and I cast, and he stripped them in... They love the top water action to see the fish come up and get the fly.

    I was hoping to get down to Mad River this weekend and look for some tools to start tying but I'm batching it this weekend with the boys and got too much to do. I was on Wapsi website looking at their poppers and I might pick up some soon, but they didn't have any pricing?? I might contact them for a catalog. I'll keep you posted on tying bass bugs.....
