4 New Pb Smallies Today!!

Recommended Posts

Ok not a PB over all but PB with a fly rod. I've had this set up for almost 5 years and never used it didn't know how and honestly a little intimidated by it. My buddy has been sending me pics of smallies he's catching by fly for a few weeks now so today I said the heck with it I'm grabbing the fly rod and going. Each fish got bigger as I kept catching them. Had 5 on landed 4 one broke off as it got in some rocks and cut the leader.

Nice Fish and Congratulations!

I'm gonna go ahead and take a leap - I don't know if you're keeping those fish, but if you're not, I don't like seeing pictures of bass in the dirt - It just takes away of my enjoyment of your catch. Maybe it's just me - Sorry!

Also, I understand if somebody wants to trash me for the comment.

I understand the fish in the dirt thing but it's about the only way to take the pic alone and there's not much flat ground with grass. I release everything by the way bass are C&R only right now anyways besides that. I take em out in hook snap a pic and release all under a minute if that even.

Get a lip gripper. You can hold the fish far enough in front of you to snap a pic, or even do it while it's in the water. The coloring on that smallie in the 2nd pic is gorgeous.

Nice Job on some sweet Bronze bass

 

Smallies on the fly are easily one of my top 3 favorite was to fish.

 

Congrats

Awesome catches Clayton! I tried fly fishing but the end of my line kept tying in knots when I tried to cast. Just ended in aggravation.

That's what I was worried about but didn't happen I did catch trees and myself a few times but I got the hang of it pretty quick. I just watched my buddy do it its all he does is fly fish goes out west every year to trout fish the streams. I wasn't as graceful and accurate but it helped me get the hang of it
