It’s not a trout…


But it’s every bit as fun on a fly.   Fishing for bass today on the Connecticut rekindled my excitement for landing lunkers.  Only difference is that I lost more fish than I remebered when I used to fish for bass years ago.  Thinking back about what could be a viable explanation,  it came to me.   I guess spinning tackle and treble hooks yield a better landing average than a pinched barb woolly bugger.  Regardless of the frustration, I am sticking with the fly rod.  As maddening as it is to lose big fish… it makes the next time out on the same water that much more exciting.  Bass-ackwards…but true.
